A Statement of Humility and Solidarity

Thursday, October 21, 2010
In response to being awarded the 2010 Sakharov Prize by the European Parliament, Cuban dissident Guillermo Farinas stated:

"I have to interpret this news with modesty, but also in a spirit of peaceful resistance. Modest because it's a prize that even if given to me personally I accept on behalf of all Cuba's exiles, political prisoners and dissidents. As I speak they are fighting for a free and democratic Cuba."
