Today is International Human Rights Day.
BUCL.org Joins Dr. Darsi Ferrer to Protest Apartheid-Like Policies in Cuba.
Protest marches are scheduled Monday December 10 in Havana and cities around the world
Bloggers United for Cuban Liberty (BUCL) extends its support and solidarity to the Cuban Dissident Dr. Darsi Ferrer on International Human Rights Day Monday, December 10. To commemorate this day, protest marches are being held to denounce what protestors are calling the immoral and illegal segregationist policies imposed by the Cuban government.
“In Cuba, apartheid is not racial, but political,” says Henry Gomez of BUCL. “The political system keeps foreigners and Cubans separate. For instance, many public accommodations that are open to tourists and high-level Communist bureaucrats are off limits to everyday Cubans.”
Protest marches will be held in Havana at the park on Calzada between D and E (Vedado), in Miami at the Graham Center at Florida International University (FIU), and in Los Angeles at 202 West First Street. The marches will begin at 11:00 am EST (8:00 am PST). For information on other marches, visit http://BUCL.org.
Basta de apartheid en Cuba has information on the demonstrations, which will take place in Miami, New York, San Juan, Seville and Madrid.
