Washington D.C. January 18, 2005. Fulfilling its agenda of international
work the Cuban Movement for a Unified Democratic represented by its
president Eng. César L. Alarcón visited the capital and met with several
political personalities of the Government and the Senate of the United
States of America in search of support and recognition for the Assembly
to promote Civil Society in Cuba.
Eng. Alarcón began with a warm encounter with the Former Senate Majority Leader
Senator Trent Lott. During the meeting Eng. Alarcón detailed to the
leader of the American Senate the great and decisive steps of
advancement that our brave pacifist opponents are gaining within Cuba,
and the difficulties that they face.
They discussed the activities and works that our valiant exile is
making. The exile that wants total freedom for Cuba, that does not yield
nor will yield until a new and true democracy is in place in our island.
Eng. Alarcón expressed to Senator Lott and his office manager that from
within our island an important call has gone out to all Cubans to
participate, coinciding with another anniversary of our Republic on May
20th 2005, in the Assembly to promote the Civil Society in Cuba. This
initiative promoted by our brave compatriots, Martha Beatriz Roque, René
Gómez Manzano and Felix Bonne Carcassés is an initiative that opens the
doors for different competing factions, which are looking for pockets of
freedom in the island, to find ways to work jointly towards solutions to
the Cuban issues.
Senator Trent Lott recognized the importance of the event, agreed to
receive all pertinent information to contribute with his support to the
success of this Congress.
Alarcón also spoke with the Chairman of U.S. Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, Senator Richard Lugar to whom he explained the desires of the
Assembly to promote the Civil Society in Cuba and agreed to deliver the
necessary documentation so that this Congress of our opposition can
receive all the necessary support on behalf of the personalities and
politicians who support the cause of freedom for Cuba.
Closing the work itinerary Eng. Alarcón, briefly spoke with the National
Security Adviser, Condoleezza Rice, to whom he requested a formal
meeting in the near future to discuss subjects related to the freedom of
Cuba, and to ask for her support, from her new position as Secretary of
State in functions for our Assembly to promote the Civil Society in
