Cuban Freedom Fighter: Rosa Maria Paya

Human Rights Foundation submitted an urgent appeal to the United Nations Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial, summary, or arbitrary executions requesting that he call on the Cuban government to provide an official and comprehensive explanation regarding the state’s treatment of Rosa María Payá. The daughter of late Cuban dissident Oswaldo Payá, Rosa María has suffered death threats and acts of intimidation at the hands of state security forces while campaigning on the island. here

Through peaceful initiatives like Cuba Decide — a campaign that seeks a referendum which would allow Cubans to vote to change the constitution to allow for free and fair elections — Rosa María is continuing the brave work begun by her father almost 20 years ago,” here
