To Mr. Lech Walesa,
How close you and «Solidarity» have been to us in these years. Receive our fraternal Greetings.
I write on behalf of the Christian «Liberation» Movement. We are a Christian and patriotic movement that by peaceful means are working for freedom and democracy in our nation.
We have no legal status, rather we are persecuted and harassed and we have no voice.
Senator Zbigniew Romaszewski sent me the form of participation in the 2nd. International Conference of Human Rights, but the Cuban mail only gave it to me on September 18. I don’t think further explanations are needed.
Enclosed is our proclamation and Proposition of National Dialogue that we have made to the Cuban government. It is very difficult for us to disclose our objectives due to difficulties well known to you. I hope this gets to you and that the Poles might know of our struggle inspired by the Gospel.
I cannot conclude without expressing our gratitude to you, the Movement «Solidarity» and all the Polish people that knew how to open the path of freedom for subject peoples.
As Catholics we feel that we are in communion with you and that overcomes the difficulties of communication.
God bless you, your family and all the Polish People.
Fraternally in Christ,
Oswaldo José Payá Sardiñas Coordinator of the Christian Movement «Liberation»
