Quote of the Day: Leading Dissident on Cuba Democracy Programs

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
[The U.S.] is right to help opposition and civil society activists because the Cuban government controls every aspect of their lives, denies them the right to speak freely and even fires them from their jobs. [UNPACU's activism] would be impossible without the help of friendly democratic nations and Cubans abroad.
-- Jose Daniel Ferrer, head of the Cuban Patriotic Union (UNPACU), the island's largest opposition group with over 5,000 members, The Miami Herald, 8/4/14
