Miami Dade College to Host Path Toward Change in Cuba
Start Date: 10/25/2019Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 10/25/2019End Time: 8:00 PM
Event Description:

Miami Dade College's (MDC) Freedom Tower will be the site of the event Path Toward Change in Cuba on Friday, Oct. 25. The important gathering will convene top international institutions and leaders in support of the Agreement for Democracy in Cuba, a pact signed in 1998 in Havana and ratified in 2007 and again in 2015 and now supported by more than 120 pro-democracy organizations in Cuba and in exile, dedicated to promoting liberty and democracy in Cuba, including Rosa María Payá, Executive Director of Fundación para la Democracia Panamericana and promoter of the Cuba Decide campaign, and Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), among others.

"The opposition on and off the Island aims for the same goal as the Cuban people – the goal of changing the system. We are held together by this goal and by the claims we ratified in the Agreement for Democracy," said Payá. 

"This event is crucial. We must ratify a transition track toward democracy, and come together in order to achieve the international isolation of such a criminal and illegitimate regime," added Orlando Gutiérrez Boronat, spokesperson of Directorio Democrático

A series of panel discussions will take place from 3 - 5 p.m., and speakers will share their vision for a democratic transition in Cuba, in addition to presenting concrete steps to change the dictatorial government in the face of the worsening conditions on the island, and the dramatic consequences of the Cuban regime's interference in the Hemisphere.
