President of the MCUD delivers a
message for president George W. Bush
Mary Fernandez/Press Director of SOS Justice
Senate Majority Leader Bill
Frist and Dr.h.c. César L. Alarcón.
A message by the Cuban Movement for a Unified Democracy (MCUD) and the
SOS Justice directed to the President of the United States of America,
Mr. George W. Bush, was given directly on September 26th by Caesar L.
Alarcón to the White House Press Secretary, Tony Snow during the 2006
Fall National meeting of the Republican Senatorial Inner Circle.
Present at the formal gala were the vice-president of the U.S.A. Mr.
Dick Cheney, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist as well as republican
Senators of many states.
Alarcón, who is also a Doctor Honoris Causa, shared a table with the
Inner Circle Chairman Senator John Thune who received from the hands of
the Cuban engineer a copy of the letter directed to President Bush so
that it can be given to the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee
Chairman Mr. Richard Lugar, who could not attend the event due to other
In one of the passages of the letter sent to president George W. Bush it
states: “For 230 years the Americans have known that “That whenever
any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the
Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new
Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its
powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their
Safety and Happiness”. Therefore, the Cuban Movement for a Unified
Democracy and the SOS Justice invoke this rule from the American
Declaration of Independence to solicit the oppressed Cuban people the
same solidarity that long ago the liberators of the United States of
America received from nations like France and Cuba".
The event was held at the Hotel J.W. Marriott and the National Museum of
Washington D.C. during September 25th and 26th.
During both days of intense agenda Eng. Alarcón discussed the subject of
the liberation of the Cuban people with some US Senate Foreign Relations
The Republican Senatorial Inner Circle is composed of past or present
Republican members of the United States Senate. It represents an
impressive cross -- section of American society --community leaders,
business executives, entrepreneurs, … and entertainment celebrities -
all of whom hold a deep interest in our nation's prosperity and
security. The Inner Circle Leadership Committee recently nominated the
Engineer Alarcón for membership in the exclusive Inner Circle.
The following is the plaintext of the message sent to president George
September 26, 2006.
Mr. George W. Bush
President of the United States of America
Concerned about almost half century of struggle against the dictatorship
that oppresses our homeland and based on the present problems, we want
to share with You and with members of your cabinet, the legislative and
judicial body, some ideas which if implemented by your administration
with legislative support would help to break the inertia of our
libertarian cause stagnant for so many years.
Pragmatism is the only form of thought and analysis able to respond to
the following. Why is it that most of the Cuban people have not been
able to rebel themselves and overthrow the communist government that has
oppressed them since last century? Speculations that after the death or
physical/mental incapacity of Fidel Castro would stop the oppression;
that at some undetermined historical point an alliance between the
military and the oppressed will form to release the later; or that the
requests and denunciations of precarious dissident associations,
independent journalists and librarians will cause pacific changes
towards democracy, these are suppositions detrimental for the cause of
liberation of the Cubans, these are conjectures without credibility in
the face or irrefutable fact because the oppressive Communist Party of
Cuba (PCC) will usurp the power indefinitely if it is not overthrown by
For 230 years the Americans have known that “That whenever any Form
of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the
People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,
laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in
such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and
Happiness”. Therefore, the Cuban Movement for a Unified Democracy
and the SOS Justice invoke this rule from the American Declaration of
Independence to solicit the oppressed Cuban people the same solidarity
that long ago the liberators of the United States of America received
from nations like France and Cuba.
SOS Justice and the MCUD recalls that there exist international treaties
such as the Universal Declaration of Human rights where "as a last
resort, man is compelled to rebel against tyranny and oppression" is
recognized, a principle by which the democratic people of the world have
the moral and legal obligations to support whoever wishes to free
themselves of an oppressive regime.
In Cuba the oppression is confirmed by the principles of the Communist
Party of Cuba imposed in their constitutional text whose fifth article
segregates all political groups that do not accept the communist
doctrine, and also that oppression is confirmed by the fact that in that
country authentic elections have not been held for almost half century,
therefore the MCUD and SOS Justice maintain that Cuba is not governed by
law but rather by abuse. Therefore we consider any attempt to reform the
system imposed by the Communists inadmissible and erroneous since it
contravenes the universally accepted principle that there can not be
justice violating the law.
On the other hand we deem any request of aid or intervention by the
O.A.S. and the UN useless against the conflict of the Cubans with their
oppressors because those organizations do not have penal jurisdiction on
criminal associations like the PCC and because, paradoxically, the
Secretary General of United Nations Kofi Annan just concluded a trip to
Cuba where he met with the oppressors of the Cuban people and with other
officials from governments considered terrorist by the United States of
America but he ignored the precarious movement defending human rights in
our country even though several activists requested Annan to meet with
them. In addition the frequent refusals of the PCC to allow UN to
supervise the human rights situation or the political prisoners in Cuba
in spite of which that international organization, contravening the
principles that it promulgates, treats the PCC terrorists as authentic
representatives of the people of Cuba.
It is axiomatic that to triumph over the abuse, viable plans, based on
methods of conflict confirmed by science (that is based on civil
resistance, rebellion or both) as well as human resources and funds to
execute these plans, are required. History demonstrates that no
oppressive regime frees its victims but it is up to the oppressed to
break the yoke that imprisons them. For example the Americans would not
be owners of their destiny nor would have gotten to be the democratic
paradigm of the world if it had not rebelled against the injustices of
England. Equally, to self-govern, the Cubans will have to overthrow the
power to the communist oppressors.
Consequently with the aforementioned, the SOS Justice and the MCUD
reject plebiscites or any other form of popular consultation in which
the oppressor PCC is considered an option, because it is against moral
and natural law that criminals become part of the solution of the
conflict that they themselves caused. The Cuban conflict will only begin
to be solved when the Communists are removed from government by any
means, when the administration of justice for the victims is guaranteed,
and when by law no member of the PCC can hold public positions.
MCUD and SOS Justice, respectfully, ask the American government and its
people to review the distribution of funds for projects related to the
promotion of democracy in Cuba in order that those resources are granted
to organizations solely whose plans are based on methods of conflict
confirmed by the science of History to be effective. It is essential for
the cause of the liberation of the Cubans to have the use of these funds
for which we ask the creation of public control procedures because they
are contributions of US taxpayers.
MCUD and SOS Justice are thankful to the American government for
implementing in their policy towards Cuba aspects that we have solicited
such as not tolerating impunity of the criminals of the PCC, to prevent
them entrance into American territory, as well as to track the money
that they have robbed from the Cubans to be returned to the public State
Treasury when Cuba reigns in freedom and democracy.
Finally, SOS Justice and the MCUD emphasize the necessity of effective
support that is demanded by the cause of liberation of the Cuban people.
Without this solidarity little or nothing will be possible to be done on
the matter. It is necessary that the activists in Cuba who plan to apply
methods of conflict confirmed by History are the one who receive the
bulk of the funds destined by the American government to promote
democracy in Cuba (and not those based in the U.S.A.) because there will
never be freedom nor democracy while the criminals of the PCC are in
power. Any hypothesis, project or plans that are not based on these
scientific procedures must be rejected as unjustifiable. Without a free
mother country the best plans, projects or studies are useless because
they are simply impossible to apply.
The independence of the activists in Cuba will be directly proportional
to the degree of monetary support that they receive and this norm
explains why the PCC’s first course of action is to have its political
police remove pro-democracy fighters from their jobs. The distribution
of funds also must be earmarked exclusively for unifying anti-communist
forces, it must be controlled publicly, and successes and failures
obtained with the money of taxpayers must be made public.
The Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba can make better
recommendations to the American government in matters of policy towards
Cuba by consulting with more activists defending democracy and
leveraging their experiences. That’s the reason why we recommend to this
organization the establishment of broader and participative work
Dear President George W. Bush we hope that you and your administration
offer the necessary support to the cause for our liberation.
Our best wishes for you Mr. President and Laura.
