Carta de ex-presos politicos cubanos al presidente de la comision de agricultura de EEUU

Chairman Collin Peterson
Committee on Agriculture
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515


Dear Chairman Peterson:




We are former Cuban political prisoners, who have spent a combined 3,551 years in Castro’s gulag. We are living testimony of the unspeakable tortures, cruelty and deprivations of the military dictatorship of the Castro brothers.


You recently released a statement concerning H.R. 4645 claiming that, “…people who oppose this bill are not speaking on behalf of the Cuban people, regardless of what they say.” Not only is your statement untrue, but also profoundly insulting to us. We are a community that is comprised of victims of the Castro dictatorship. Mr. Peterson, we are “Cuban people” and we wholeheartedly oppose your bill.

Your statement is all the more offensive when you take into account that the Cuban-American community has four Members that we elect to the U.S. House of Representatives and all four oppose your legislation as well.

How dare you profess to know more about the Cuban people, or our plight, than the Members who are elected by us and the family members of Cubans from the island?


You have every right to try to advance your agricultural agenda. However, you are not entitled to question our community, which is full of Castro’s victims -- who have suffered brutality that you could not even fathom -- and whose relatives on the island continue to be the victims of that dictatorship’s daily repressio


You have consistently demonstrated a lack of sensitivity to the suffering of our people and an apparent lack of awareness regarding the important leverage that U.S. sanctions represents to our struggle for Cuba’s freedom. You recently stated, “None of us support the Cuban Government’s detainment of political prisoners.However, these policies we have in place today have done nothing to remove the regime or to improve the situation for political prisoners.” Nonetheless, you have never taken the time to meet with any of us, nor have you ever invited us to testify before your committee. If you had, you would not be able to ignore the fact that every dollar your legislation seeks to place in the coffers of the Castro regime will only be used to further repress the Cuban people. Should this legislation pass, Mr. Peterson, we trust that you will be prepared to assume the responsibility for the increased bloodshed it will cause the people of Cuba.


Mr. Peterson, you owe us, our community and our elected Representatives an immediate apology for your offensive statement. Though you may disagree with our views, we hope you will not continue to impugn us for our suffering, deeply held beliefs and tragic experiences.

Sincerely

Presidente Collin Peterson

Comisión de Agricultura
Estados Unidos Cámara de Representantes
Washington, DC 20515

Querido Peterson Presidente:

Somos ex prisioneros políticos cubanos, que han pasado un total combinado de 3.551 años en el gulag Castro. Estamos viviendo testimonio de las torturas indecibles, la crueldad y la privación de la dictadura militar de los hermanos Castro.

Recientemente ha publicado una declaración relativa a HR 4645 alegando que, "... las personas que se oponen a este proyecto de ley no están hablando en nombre del pueblo cubano, independientemente de lo que dicen." No sólo es su declaración falsa, sino también profundamente insultante para nosotros. Somos una comunidad que se compone de las víctimas de la dictadura de Castro. El Sr. Peterson, que son "pueblo cubano" y de todo corazón se oponen a su factura.

Su declaración es tanto más ofensiva si se toma en cuenta que la comunidad cubano-americana tiene cuatro miembros que elegirá a la Cámara de Representantes de EE.UU. y los cuatro se oponen a su legislación. ¿Cómo te atreves a profesan saber más sobre el pueblo cubano, o de nuestra situación, que los diputados que son elegidos por nosotros y los miembros de la familia de cubanos de la isla? Usted tiene todo el derecho de tratar de avanzar en su agenda agrícola. Sin embargo, usted no tiene derecho a cuestionar nuestra comunidad, que está lleno de víctimas de Castro - que han sufrido la brutalidad que se podía ni siquiera imaginar - y cuyos familiares en la isla siguen siendo las víctimas de la dictadura que a diario la represión.

Usted ha demostrado de forma consistente una falta de sensibilidad hacia el sufrimiento de nuestro pueblo y una aparente falta de conciencia respecto a la influencia importante que sanciones de los EE.UU. representa a nuestra lucha por la libertad de Cuba. Usted dijo recientemente: "Ninguno de nosotros detención de apoyo del Gobierno de Cuba de presos políticos. Sin embargo, estas políticas que tenemos en lugar de hoy no han hecho nada para eliminar el régimen o para mejorar la situación de los presos políticos. "Sin embargo, nunca han tomado el tiempo para cumplir con cualquiera de nosotros, ni ¿alguna vez nos invitó a declarar ante su comisión. Si tuviera, no sería capaz de ignorar el hecho de que cada dólar que su legislación tiende a situar en las arcas del régimen castrista sólo será utilizada para reprimir aún más al pueblo cubano. En caso de pasar esta legislación, el Sr. Peterson, confiamos en que usted estará preparado para asumir la responsabilidad por el derramamiento de sangre mayor que hará que el pueblo de Cuba.

El Sr. Peterson, que nos debe, nuestra comunidad y nuestros representantes elegidos una disculpa inmediata por su declaración ofensiva. Aunque no esté de acuerdo con nuestros puntos de vista, esperamos que no nos siguen impugnar de nuestro sufrimiento, profundamente arraigadas creencias y experiencias trágicas.

Atentamente,



Sincerely,
