civil societies send condolences to Nancy Reagan.
HAVANA, June 10 (
www.cubanet.org ) - Four dissident civil society organizations have
sent a message of condolences to Nancy Reagan on the death of former
president Ronald Reagan, "whose memory will be an eternal reminder for
every Cuban who fights for freedom and democracy in Cuba."
The organizations sending the message were the Cuban Human Rights
Foundation, the Union of Free Workers of Cuba, the Cuban Democratic
Coalition and the Independent Library Network.
"We want to recognize such an illustrious American citizen for having
fulfilled his protagonist role in the U.S. fight against the forces of
evil, as Reagan called international Communism," the message said.
The message also thanked Reagan for the establishment of Radio Martí
which, it said, kept the Cuban people informed.
The message was given to Cuba's independent journalists for
distribution. It was signed by the presidents of the organizations: Juan
Carlos González Leiva, Reinaldo Cosano Alén and María Elena Mir Marrero.
