International Human Rights Week 12/5/09 to 12/12/09
It has been a humbling experience for me who was raised in the USA, since the age of 2 years old, to hear the stories of so many, the passion for their country.
To engage with people, the grassroots! Of Cuba, Venezuela, and others, their will to continue to fight for Liberty and human rights. It is something no one will ever take away from them, from me.
It makes me love and bow down to the USA, for embracing all of us with love, compassion and the will to be all you can be.
This is why we must also come together to help this great nation to continue to be the leader of the Free World.
On to the human rights demonstration:
Location: The Bay of Pigs Cuban Memorial – Calle 8 y la 13
On December 5, 2009, various Cuban exile organizations established throughout the years came out to support, EXILIO UNIDO YA! To join hearts, hands for ONE common Vision, Goal and Mission, Un Cuba Libra with NO Castro or its ideologies.
Today, on December 12, 2009, the Venezuelan community requested us to be present to support their cause No Chavez/No Castro, at the Cuban Memorial Site.
I guess we are all on the same page as we move forward showing our solidarity to stand up together for Liberty, Democracy, Prosperity and Unity!
Here are some simple, yet powerful hi-lights of the event:
What a musical group singing their folk songs from Venezuela and a young little girl dancing with her dress of the Venezuelan flag. You had to be there to capture the moment, the energy, and the essence of spirit.
Lady driver, no pun intended, gets excited and almost came up on the curve….
Drivers blowing their horns in solidarity!
Walk on by stop to greet us and stand with us for a moment, which is all that it takes. They go on to do their business, funny this Christmas and New Year everyone longs for the same. Una Cuba Libra y Una Venezuela Libra! No Castro/NoChavez!
A distinguished, well dressed, lovely elderly lady letting me know she is Cuban and loves the Venezuelan people and cannot stay for she is on her way to El Parke de Domino, just 2 blocks away from the memorial. What can I say, Adorable!
Many wonderful speakers expressed their solidarity.
An ex- military man reads the Venezuelan manifesto:
No Mas Comunismo: Ni Mas Castros, Ni Mas Chavez
Queremos Patria, Libertad, Democracia y Desarrollo
No more violations of human rights, respect for political prisoners and their families.
The ultimate moment, the silence, and the one that hit the emotions!!! Together a Venezuelan woman and Cuban Woman hold a brown bag together, take out two beautiful Birds of Peace and release them to be in Liberty! Classic!
Cuba and Latin America cannot continue on the path of Chavez, Castro and Che’s socialist principles of hatred and impeding their will.
We cannot continue to allow these ideologies to up root us from our base; we must fight collectively to uphold freedom and liberty in Latin America and Cuba.
Perhaps, learn from Honduras and others that have stood their ground and fought Goliath.
The United States of America cannot afford to ignore their closes neighbors, anymore.
For it is for the good of the United States to be aware of the developments within these regions.
I see a horizon full of light a non-stoppable force of good will for the human race.
We all have to live on this planet called Earth; either we create heaven on earth or hell.
Thank you for the privilege to stand by you!
