HAVANA, Jan. 9, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --

WHAT:

Through the 100 days 100 voices campaign, the promoters of Cuba Decide around the world denounce the arbitrary imprisonment of José Daniel Ferrer by publishing 100 photographs of citizens who, in Cuba and around the world, demand the liberation of the Cuban opposition leader after 100 days of unjust imprisonment.

In this context, the platform today renews its call to all people of good will in the world to join the call for the immediate release of Jose Daniel Ferrer and the other 3 activists detained with him. The platform further requests that representatives in the national parliaments of each country show their solidarity by approving resolutions demanding their immediate release.



WHO:

Activists, artists, senators, MEPs, youth from several countries of the Americas, and citizens in general have joined the 100 days 100 voices campaign. All people, from anywhere in the world can show solidarity by publishing their photo on social networks using the #FreeFerrer tag.

José Daniel Ferrer is the national coordinator of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU) and one of the main promoters of the Cuba Decide citizen initiative on the Island.

On October 1, 2019, state security and police officers from the Cuban regime assaulted and raided Ferrer's home. In the act, he was violently detained along with three other activists: José Pupo Chaveco, Fernando González VaiIlant and Roilán Zárraga Ferrer. The four have been subjected to cruel and inhuman treatment and remain in prison with the threat of prosecution for fabricated crimes.

About Cuba Decide
Cuba Decide is a citizen initiative to change the political and economic system in Cuba provoking a peaceful transition process towards democracy.

THE STRATEGY
Generate the pressure necessary to force the regime to submit to the will of the people through coordinated non-violent action of the citizens and the international community.

To make the change, Cuba Decide proposes that the will of Cubans be expressed and complied with through a binding plebiscite in Cuba ―a direct vote of the people― to answer the following question:

Are you in agreement with the convening of free, fair and plural elections exercising freedom of expression and of the press, and organizing freely in political parties and social organizations with total plurality?

Yes or No?
