HAVANA TIMES – The young Cuban political activist Eliecer Avila said Tuesday in a video posted on YouTube from Poland, that the new organization Somos+ (We are+), aims to “unite wills” to “negotiate” with the Cuban government.

“We all win if we unite and we really negotiate, move that huge rock that is politics in Cuba,” said Avila. “I’m willing to spend my youth, this energy, these years with you (…) to face this struggle and succeed.”

“We want to do our bit to promote policies, laws, projects within Cuba that allow us to build” another reality, he announced.

According to Diario de Cuba, the activist did not say how many people currently make up Somos+,  organization that Avila says will reflect “the real thinking of many people in the street.”

Eliecer is known for having questioned former Cuban parliament chair Ricardo Alarcon a few years ago at a meeting at the UCI computer university about Cuba’s policy on exit visas and travel.

As of  January of this year the exit visa was dropped.

  • Mr. Patterson, yes, nuances, details, particularities, differences do exist and are relevant to any acceptable analysis. Comparing Cuba to North Korea is simplistic, biased, common place and terribly inaccurate from a factual point of view.

  • Moses seems far more concerned about this Young mans health than he is.Typical yankee reaction.
