Attendees discussed the establishment of the Democratic Unity Roundtable
in Venezuela and its possible applications to the Cuban case

Attendees discussed the establishment of the Democratic Unity Roundtable
in Venezuela and its possible applications to the Cuban case. The
current status of the opposition in Cuba was also discussed, along with
short-term action strategies (before the conclusion of the Summit of the
Americas in Panama on 10 and 11 April), as well as medium- and long-term
strategies.

One of the objectives of activists gathered in Madrid has been the
development of a Journey of Thought for a new country that would include
a diagnosis of the major social and economic challenges and the
development of possible solutions. They also attempted to come to
consensus on ideas and actions for Cuban civil society inside and
outside the island, to achieve unity in the face of a peaceful
transition, including freedom of expression, the ethical use of the
media and new technologies, a process of civic education for the proper
exercise of freedom, entrepreneurial empowerment, in addition to the
essential legal and constitutional changes.

Participants agreed to organize follow-up meetings based on themes –
economy, education, agriculture, communications media, new technologies
– and the widest possible dissemination of these discussions outside the
Island under the slogan “Another Cuba is possible.”
