Orlando Gutiérrez, coordinator of the Assembly of Cuban Resistance, called this Wednesday, in Miami, a national strike in Cuba as a result of the protests on July 11, considered unprecedented in more than 60 years of Castroism.

“Today marks the first month of the beginning of the civil revolt for freedom (in Cuba), a national rebellion that shows the world the deep desire of the Cuban people to live under the rule of law,” Gutiérrez said in a video message. In the message, Gutiérrez said he was convinced of the need to move towards a “new stage of civic struggle” that would crystallize in “national paralysis” with the “renunciation of all organs of the regime” and the organization of protests and actions that would “make it difficult” all operations of the Cuban dictatorship.

The activist acknowledged that the path begun in July “will not be easy” and referred to the “hundreds of Cubans” who “paid a very high price” in prison for “a frontal and peaceful struggle against the regime” in the protests.

The coordinator of the Assembly of Cuban Resistance, a platform that brings together opposition organizations inside and outside Cuba, used the slogans of “homeland and life” (in reference to the song that became an anthem of protests in the country): “we want freedom and the end of communism” and “we want the dictatorship to fall”. “These objectives are at the heart of our struggle,” he added in his message to the Cuban people. According to him, the Cuban exiled community, “more united than ever”, came together “in the force of this struggle with the brothers on the island”, with all those who ask for change, “the vast majority”.

The exile commented that the “national standstill” seeks to “not cooperate” with the Cuban regime, “to protest in whatever way possible and to spread the message of freedom.” “The world is looking at Cuba and it knows that the Cuban people want freedom,” he emphasized.
