MCL Statement on Email of John Podesta, Campaign Manager for Hillary Clinton

"The truth will set them in solidarity with our freedom"

In a July 2015 email disseminated by Wikileaks, John Podesta, campaign manager for Hillary Clinton states that, "Yes. Oswaldo Paya. The Cuban government forced him off the road and killed him almost certainly."

For this very important person, also linked to the administration of President Obama and now the Democratic presidential nominee, to make this statement indicates that in the upper echelons of power in the United States they have evidence or details to affirm it.

The Christian Liberation Movement from the outset revealed a text message that read, "Angel says that a vehicle forced us off the road," sent by Aron Modig, who was traveling with Paya and Angel Carromero, as a passenger in the vehicle that suffered the attack.

Since then, we have divulged all of the details that we have about this tragedy and have called for an independent investigation to clarify what happened. Not only the United States government, but the governments of Spain, Sweden and many foreign ministries have information about what occurred on July 22nd, 2012 on the road from Bayamo.

We hope that whoever wins the election will demand and directly support an independent investigation into the death of Oswaldo Paya and Harold Cepero and to support our platform, "One Cuban, One Vote," so that the pursuit for freedom that Oswaldo and Harold lived and died for can reach Cuba through the sovereign will of the people. That is how democracies can have a relationship of total solidarity with Cuba, which also includes all of us Cubans who do not have rights.
