Activist In Exile: It Is Sad That a "Tyrant" Dies and Freedom Doesn't Come
EFE/via 14ymedio, 26 November 2016 — Ramon Saul Sanchez, leader of the
Cuban exile organization Democracy Movement, lamented today that the
death of a "tyrant," as he defines Fidel Castro, will not mean "freedom
for the people of Cuba".
"It is the greatest sadness that I have in my heart," the activist told
EFE; like many others in Miami the news of Castro's death got him out of
"I wish I could tell you that the tyrant's death is people's freedom,"
but in the case of Cuba is not so "because they (the Castros) managed
the succession very well."
According to Sanchez, if Castro had died while in the exercise of power,
it could have sparked a revolt in Cuba to demand freedom, but as his
brother Raul is in office, the impact will not be the same.
For the leader of the Democracy Movement, Fidel Castro is a symbol of
terror that Cuba has suffered for almost 60 years and his legacy is
"fear, prisons, pain, rafters, etc…"
