Important Announcement

These good people are doing what some would say is "God's work," and will post their comment/request here - it speaks for itself; their web site is excellent, and is being linked to this blog. Yes, we certainly identify with their down-to-earth, practical objectives and we hope you readers will too, and help them - even if, assuming you blog, all you do is link Cuba Virtual to your blog or web site.

While we're at it, also linking another site pointed out by blog sister Stefania - who authors "Free Thoughts;" this is the page for "Madres y Mujeres Anti-Represion por Cuba" - "Mothers and Women Against Repression for Cuba." Their site deserves a visit - many, in fact, and any support possible from all of us. Their link has also been added to Havana5060 - M A R Por Cuba.

May God bless the liberating efforts of these good, hardworking people. For the sake of Cuba's freedom.

"Hello Albert,

We are frequent visitors to havana5060.

We would very much appreciate your support in spreading the word about the conference Cuba Virtual will hold on November 4, 2006 under the motto 'Acercamiento y
Concertacion' (Coming Together and Joining Forces).

Considering your stated position on havana5060, we are confident you can identify with our down-to-earth, practical objectives - and might want to get involved with - or at the very least - support this grass-roots movement.

It is open to anyone interested in giving the Cuban and Cuban-American Diaspora a distinct and unified voice, that will also include a large number of younger-generation, educated Cubans living in third countries and outside of the traditional exile groups' radar screen.

We are asking for your support promoting the upcoming event via
com, and spreading the word to others who you think might want to participate:

(see also the post "Reunion Extraordinaria" on

As stated above you are more than welcome to join us - in fact we are hoping you would want to get involved and help us keep the momentum going.
Thank you."

You are quite welcome, Mr. Roque - and thank YOU, Ms. Carballosa, and Mr. Llanos for your labor of love in this worthy cause - hope we - by "we" meaning all of us who support the cause of Cuba - no matter where we are or what medium we use, will provide meaningful support in the future, until Cuba is truly free.
