    Miami, Florida – 13 de mayo del 2019- Directorio Democrático Cubano-El Directorio Democrático Cubano denuncia la violencia, represión y detenciones que el régimen comunista ha cometido contra miembros de la resistencia cubana, activistas de derechos humanos y periodistas independientes quienes han levantado su vos voces y realizado acciones a favor de los derechos y la libertad del pueblo cubano.

    El régimen comunista de Cuba arrestó en la mañana de hoy a Ariana Lopez Roque, directora de la Academia Julio Machado afiliada al Frente Nacional de Resistencia Cívica Orlando Zapata Tamayo, donde se comenzaba hoy la “Jornada Boitel”, en coordinación de actividades opositoras en toda la Isla.

    El pasado sábado 11 de mayo, una marcha independiente de la comunidad LGBTI cubana que demostraba públicamente a favor de sus derechos fue violentamente reprimida por la policía política con golpes y arrestos, donde fue detenida la periodista independiente Ileana Hernandez.

    Así también el miércoles pasado 8 de mayo, fue detenida la periodista independiente Luz Escobar de “14ymedio” y por otra parte recibió amenazas de la Seguridad del Estado, Isel Arango, editora de “La Hora de Cuba”.

    Varios miembros de las Damas de Blanco han estado detenidas durante el fin de semana del 11 al 12 de mayo. El miércoles 8 de mayo, las Damas de Blanco, Marieta Martinez y Lourdes Esquivel fueron arrestadas y en el caso de Marieta Martinez fue golpeada, le destruyeron postales de felicitación por el Día de las Madres que ella entregaría a sus compañeras activistas de la organización.

    El Directorio Democrático Cubano denuncia una vez más ante la comunidad internacional y las organizaciones de derechos humanos, al régimen cubano por coartar con uso de la violencia y el aumento de la represión, el derecho del pueblo de Cuba a ejercer actividades a favor de su libertad.

    Miami, Florida- 17 de abril del 2019- La Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana- La Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana recibe la promulgación de esta medida, siendo hoy 17 de abril el aniversario de Bahía de Cochinos, como un paso firme que combate el financiamiento de las atrocidades del régimen comunista de Cuba dentro y fuera del país. La impunidad hasta el día de hoy, solo ha servido para sostener este régimen criminal por seis décadas en Cuba y para exportar esa trayectoria de destrucción y represión a otros países, como sufren hoy Venezuela y Nicaragua.
     
    El pasado 11 de marzo del presente, la Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana, junto a destacadas organizaciones del exilio cubano y líderes del exilio nicaragüense y venezolano, enviamos al Presidente Donald J. Trump una carta pública y una pancarta firmada, pidiéndole la implementación plena de los Títulos III y IV de la “Ley de Libertad y Solidaridad Cubana” (Ley Helms-Burton).
     
    Asimismo, la Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana felicita a todos los legisladores y funcionarios electos estatales y federales que han luchado tan duro por esta victoria, al liderazgo mostrado por los Senadores Marco Rubio y Rick Scott y el Congresista Mario Diaz Balart.
     
    Esta petición de la Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana fue respaldada por oficiales electos del gobierno condal de Miami-Dade y de los gobiernos municipales de la Ciudad de Miami y Coral Gables. El Alcalde del Condado Miami-Dade, Carlos Giménez, el Alcalde de la Ciudad de Miami, Francis Suarez, el Alcalde de la ciudad de Doral Juan Carlos Bermúdez, el Alcalde de la ciudad de Coral Gables Raúl Valdés Fauli, los Comisionados del Condado Miami-Dade, Jose “Pepe’ Diaz y Esteban L. Bovo, los Comisionados de la Ciudad de Miami, Joe Carollo Willy Gort y Manolo Reyes han firmado o una carta pública al Presidente apoyando su posición en cuanto a Cuba y urgiendo a continuar  con los Títulos III y IV, o han firmado la pancarta “Yes to Title III and IV”  que llevan la firma de líderes de la comunidad y la cual será enviada al Presidente Trump.
     
    La Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana encabezó una campaña  para hacer conciencia sobre las ganancias  que el régimen comunista recibe a través del uso de las propiedades confiscadas y que financian la represión. “Don’t Aid Theft” “No Ayudes el Robo” consistió en demostraciones públicas, caravanas, materiales educativos, propaganda en medios comunitarios. Vallas en áreas claves y en medios de transportación entre otras iniciativas. Esta campaña contó con la colaboración de muchos, incluyendo cubanos dentro la Isla,  al igual  que de venezolanos y nicaragüenses exiliados que entienden personalmente el nivel de crueldad de el régimen comunista de Cuba.
     
    El régimen comunista de Cuba, en su noticiero oficialista del mediodía de ayer, atacó al exilio cubano y sus organizaciones representadas en la Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana por la petición hecha a la Administración Trump y agregó que el exilio cubano se siente eufórico ante la aplicación de los Títulos III y IV.

    La Asamblea de la Resistencia Cubana, en una reunión sostenida hoy con el Secretario de Seguridad Nacional, John Bolton, presentó a la Administración del Presidente Donald Trump otros planteamientos de vital importancia hacia el objetivo supremo de la libertad de Cuba, Nicaragua y Venezuela.
     
    Esto es una gran victoria para todas las víctimas del régimen comunista de Cuba y para todos los que en el mundo aspiran al respeto de sus derechos fundamentales.

    Miami, Florida- April 17, 2019- The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance-The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance receives the promulgation of this measure, on the April 17 anniversary of the Bay of Pigs, as a firm step to combat the financing of atrocities by the communist regime of Cuba inside and outside the country. The impunity to this day has only served to sustain the Castro criminal regime for six decades and has allowed the export of destruction and repression to other countries, such as Venezuela and Nicaragua. 

    On March 11 of this year, the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance, together with prominent Cuban exile organizations and leaders of the Nicaraguan and Venezuelan exile community, sent President Donald J. Trump a public letter and a signed banner, asking him for the full implementation of Titles III and IV of the "Law of Cuban Freedom and Solidarity" (Helms-Burton Law). 

    In addition, the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance congratulates all legislators and elected state and federal officials who have fought so hard for this victory. The leadership shown by Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott, and Congressman Mario Diaz Balart will never be forgotten. This request from the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance was supported by elected officials of the Miami-Dade County government and the municipal governments of the City of Miami and Coral Gables. Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Giménez, City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, City of Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermúdez, City of Coral Gables Mayor Raúl Valdés Fauli, Miami-Dade County Commissioners Jose "Pepe" Diaz and Esteban L. Bovo, and Commissioners of the City of Miami Joe Carollo, Willy Gort and Manolo Reyes have  all signed a public letter to the President supporting his position regarding Cuba and urging the administration to fully implement Titles III and IV. These officials have also signed the banner "Yes to Title III and IV" that includes the signatures of community leaders which will be sent to President Trump. 

    The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance spearheaded a campaign to raise awareness of the advantages the communist regime receives through the use of confiscated properties and financing of repression. "Don’t Aid Theft"/"No Ayudes el Robo" consisted of public demonstrations, caravans, educational materials, propaganda in community media and billboards in key areas as well as transportation means among other initiatives. This campaign counted on the collaboration of many, including Cubans inside the Island, Venezuelans and exiled Nicaraguans who personally understand the level of cruelty perpetrated by the communist regime of Cuba. The communist regime of Cuba, in its official news at noon broadcast of April 16, attacked the Cuban exile community and organizations represented in the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance due to the implementation request made to the Trump Administration and added that the Cuban exiles feel elated before the application of Titles III and IV. The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance, in a meeting held today with National Security Advisor John Bolton, presented to President Donald Trump’s administration additional proposals of vital importance towards the ultimate objective of freedom for Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. This is a great victory for all the victims of the Cuban communist regime, and it is a sign of hope for those around the world who aspire to one day have their fundamental human rights respected.

    The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance (ARC) is a coalition of the Cuban resistance composed of members of the Cuban exiled community and the opposition in Cuba, founded on March 18, 2009. The work done by the Assembly is widely recognized by the Cuban exiled community, the international community and in Cuba

    Miami, Florida -March 27, 2019- Assembly of the Cuban Resistance Today some  of the leading Cuban American county and municipal officials have called on President Donald J. Trump for full implementation of sanctions against foreign investors in Titles III and IV of the Cuban Liberty Act, in what has become a groundswell of community support for full enactment of the measures.

    Miami Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, Miami City Mayor Francis Suarez, Doral City Mayor, Juan Carlos Bermudez, Coral Gables City Mayor, Raul Valdes-Fauli, Miami Dade,  County Commissioners Jose Pepe Diaz and Esteban L Bovo, City of Coral Gables Commissioner Vince Lago, Jr. and Miami City Commissioners Joe Carollo, Willy Gort and Manolo Reyes have either signed on to an open letter to the President supporting his stand on Cuba and urging further action on Titles III and IV, or signed the “Yes to Titles III and IV” banner that scores of community leaders have put their names on and which will be sent to the President.

    The letter and the banner were made public by the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance, which coalesces the main Cuban exile and resistance organizations at a press conference at the Bay of Pigs Monument on (place date). The Communist Regime in Cuba has repeatedly attacked the well-attended press conference on Cuban state media.

    “The Cuban exile community is united in supporting full implementation of Titles III and IV,” said Brigade 2506 President Johnny Lopez De la Cruz.

    “Full implementation of Titles III and IV is needed to counter the crimes against humanity perpetrated by the Communist Regime in Cuba against the Cuban and Venezuelan people,” said Sylvia Iriondo, president of Mothers Against Repression.

    On February 24 of this year, an overflow crowd at Miami City Hall attending a joint Congress of resistance movements in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela and at a massive car caravan that immediately followed it, repeatedly called for President Trump to implement the measures.

    “One of the best ways to accelerate the liberation of Venezuela is to stiffen sanctions against the Cuban Communist puppet masters,” said former political prisoner and Venezuelan labor leader Carlos Ortega.

    “The Cuban, Nicaraguan and Venezuelan voting blocs in Florida fully support implementation of Titles III and IV,” said Dr. Orlando Gutiérrez Boronat, of the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance.

    On January 16, 2019  President Trump became the first US President in 23 years to partially lift Title III of the Cuban Liberty Act, also known as the Helms-Burton, by allowing US citizens whose properties in Cuba were illegally confiscated by the Castro Regime to sue Cuban military and intelligence companies making use of those facilities.

    On March 4, 2019, Secretary of Stare Mike Pompeo established an unprecedented 30-day waiting period for the President’s decision on full implementation, as prior administrations had previously extended the suspension of Title III for six-month periods.

    "In 1996, President Clinton signed the Cuba Liberty Act surrounded by the families of three U.S. citizens and one resident assassinated over international waters by the criminal Communist Regime in Cuba. Title III and IV of this Act have remained dormant since then, meaning that for twenty three years, what had been conceived as justice at the time as yet to be served", said Mario de la Peña, father of Mario Manuel de la Peña, one of the four assassinated on February 24, 1996.

    LINK: #RoyalShame Clips    LINK: Senator Scott Letter

    LINK: POLITICAL PRISONERS Campaign

    Miami, Florida – March 22, 2019 –Cuban Democratic Directorate (Directorio)- We vehemently oppose the ill-advised “RoyalVisitCuba”sanctioned by the United Kingdom of Great Britain, which is set to begin this Sunday, March 24 in Cuba. Prince Charles and Camila, Duchess of Cornwall, will be knowingly playing into a propaganda schedule carefully staged to enhance the image of the criminal Communist Regime. For the Royal Monarchy to lend its name to such a spectacle of total disregard for crimes against humanity taking place for decades by their host regime is a #RoyalShame.

    We applaud Senator Rick Scott and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart for reiterating the facts to the British Government in writing (attached) as well as in meetings and to the media. These facts include the obvious contradiction to the stance which it took in support of interim Venezuelan President Juan Guaido. During that time the UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt stated, “those who continue to violate the human rights of ordinary Venezuelans under an illegitimate regime will be called to account.” A bold statement of solidarity with Venezuela one week followed by the announcement of cozying up with “those” violators at the very top the next.

    This past November Prince Charles met with Diaz-Canel of Cuba’s Communist Regime in London on the Prince’s 70th birthday. This shows that the decision to ignore crimes against humanity has been in the works for some time. In an interview with Travel Trade Caribbean later that same month, Dr. Anthony Stokes, Ambassador of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland to Cuba, explained both nations' current relationship, saying that “in terms of commercial exchange and diplomatic relations, .” He the current climate was full of potential as both countries embarked on a period of strengthening ties also talked about “a cultural programme in place to strengthen ties between both nations.” Shortly after that interview, Diaz-Canel signed Decree 349, presented by Raul Castro formally criminalizes the arts in Cuba. Further proof that no amount of diplomacy can change the criminal nature of this regime; on the contrary, it emboldens them.

    The Duchess of Cornwall who serves as the President of Women of the World “WOW” Festival, celebrating the achievements of women and girls as well as looking at the obstacles they face across the world, will be arriving in Cuba on a Sunday. Ironically, March 24th marks the 182 consecutive Sunday (and counting) that the Ladies in White in Cuba will face violence, arbitrary arrests, and imprisonment this time, while the Royals are being entertained by their oppressors. This is just another example of a regrettable blossoming relationship marred by obvious contradictions in the desire to try to justify placing commerce above morality.

    #RoyalShame is in response to #RoyalVisitCuba, featuring a series of short clips debunking the myth of topics the regime is vigorously spinning as part of this visit such as architecture, culture and the environment. Most importantly, are the images of current political prisoners being

    posted alongside the message “No Pleasure without Conscience”.

    Ladies in White

    For 181 consecutive Sundays and counting, the Ladies in White attempt to walk to Santa Rita Church in the neighborhood of Lawton, Havana. They carry flowers and signs asking for the release of all political prisoners. They endure violence, arbitrary arrests and imprisonment at the hands of the criminal Communist Regime.

    YES TO TITLES III and IV!

    Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan communities request from President Trump implementation of sanctions against Communist Regime in Cuba

    Miami, Florida. March 11, 2019- Assembly of the Cuban Resistance-Leaders of the Cuban, Venezuelan and Nicaraguan communities met today at the historic Bay of Pigs Monument at SW 8 st and 13 Avenue in Miami to request full implementation of Titles III and IV of the Cuban Libertad Act.
    Titles III and IV of the Libertad Act, also known as the Helms-Burton Bill would allow victims of the illegal confiscations of commercial property by the Castro Regime to sue companies that invest in them.
    Leaders of the three communities, organized by the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance, issued a public letter to President Trump at the event, where they requested application of the sanctions in order to more effectively support the freedom struggles in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. 

    March 7, 2019

    Donald J. Trump

    President of the United States of America

    The White House

    Washington, DC

    Dear Mister President:

    The Cuban exile community, coalesced in the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance, together with resistance organizations inside Cuba, congratulates you on your decision to partially implement Title III of the Cuban Liberty and Democratic Solidarity Act.

    Your strong leadership and political courage to challenge the rogue totalitarian regime prevailing in Cuba is an encouraging sign that under your administration, Cuba will not be forgotten or sacrificed. The brave veterans of Brigade 2506 and of the Cuban Resistance know all too well what abandonment by a US administration entails, as occurred at the Battle of the Bay of Pigs almost 58 year ago. 

    April 17, the day when implementation of Title III and IV could begin, marks the anniversary of that catastrophic reversal in US policy which condemned the Cuban people to live in tyranny for almost six decades, and the rest of the Hemisphere to suffer from the aggression and even occupation of the Communist Regime based in Havana. 

    Last year you reverted the ill-fated policies of the Obama administration and, today, we feel that the time for Cuban freedom is finally here. The Communist totalitarian regime is not just a tragedy for Cubans, but also an undermining influence of our democratic values in all Latin America.

    We respectfully address you to request full implementation of the Cuban Liberty Act, which contains an intelligent and effective road map for the liberation of Cuba if it is fully implemented, which has not been the case for the past 23 years.  Title III and IV of the Cuban Liberty Act are a just and necessary means to respond to the illegal confiscation by the communist regime in Cuba of property legitimately owned by US citizens. Moreover, its full implementation sends a clear message of support for the Cuban people who, as recently as February 24 of this year, have resoundingly called out for freedom by massively refusing to cooperate with the fraudulent referendum imposed on them by the Castro family and the Communist Party in order to perpetuate their illegal and illegitimate rule.

    Decisive sanctions such as these against the economy of the illegitimate Communist tyrants of Cuba will weaken the Castro Regime’s occupation of Venezuela and hasten the day of the liberation of Venezuela, Cuba, Nicaragua and other countries in our Hemisphere.

    We believe that, when fully implemented, Title III of the Cuban Liberty Act would bestow a heavy blow to the dictatorship and its ability to fund its repression and expand its base. We are also aware that some countries, “friends” of the US, will disagree with the measure, but they also disagreed when you removed the US from the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement, when you canceled the Nuclear Pact with Iran and when you imposed heavy tariffs to China to correct unfair trade practices. The outcomes of all those measures demonstrated that you were right. That is vision and leadership.

    Mr. President, we fully support you and encourage you to take the correct and necessary measures to restore to the Cuban people the right to select their political system and elect their leaders. Sixty years of oppression and poverty have been a terrible ordeal and Cuba deserves better.

    We appreciate your leadership and efforts to help bring about freedom and democracy to Cuba, and peace, stability and security to our region.
