An FHRC delegation attended the inauguration of the president of Paraguay, the economist Santiago Peña, who will lead the country for the next 5 years.
On this occasion FHRC was represented by its president Tony Costa, research director Hugo Acha and project director Erik Cartelle, who held a special meeting with the Paraguayan president and personalities defending human rights in the country and the region.
The former Minister of Finance, Santiago Peña, expressed his support for FHRC in his mission to achieve a democratic change in Cuban society through strategic nonviolent struggle.
During his final speech at the inauguration, Peña said: “Today is a holiday, we celebrate the victory of freedom, we celebrate the victory of democracy as a tool to govern fairly and conveniently for all, a tool to live in harmony.” In turn, he spoke about a topic that is essential in the work carried out by the FHRC to denounce the abuses of the Castro regime in the medical missions.
“The region also faces other strategic challenges that we cannot ignore and that require a regional approach. Such is the case of transnational criminal networks, especially drug trafficking and human trafficking. We must improve our cooperation mechanisms in terms of intelligence, exchange of information, training of human resources, compatibility of computer systems and integration and agility of customs controls.
The work of the Foundation for Human Rights in Cuba at the international level is essential to publicize the violations established by the Cuban state against the essential rights and freedoms of the people.
