ROBERTO DE MIRANDA REMEMBERS CUBA’S BLACK SPRING – MARCH 18, 2003

 

“I’d like to let people know that those who struggle for human rights in Cuba are not mercenaries. We’re men of the people. We are not trying to overthrow the Cuban government through violent means. Let them know that in our minds and in our hearts, above all else, there is forgiveness. We do not want any bloodshed in our motherland. This is a Cuban problem and it will be resolved by Cubans.” – Roberto de Miranda, Black Spring Dissident
