Cuban Dissidents Distribute the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

A group of Cuban dissidents and former political prisoners delivered dozens of copies of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to the passerbies in Havana. Some people were afraid of the consequences of accepting material the regime’s police authorities regard as “enemy propaganda”, but in the end accepted them. This not the first time dissidents deliver anti-regime and pro-democracy material to the people. Across Cuba, dozens of other movements do the same and have never been met with hostility. Quite the opposite, people demand more. Dissidents believe people won’t take to the streets if they don’t know that they have rights that are being violated. That’s why there is a nationwide campaign to let them know they have rights. These photos were sent via email by Martha Beatriz Roque, pictured in the below pics.
