Key Dissident Issues Plan Toward Democracy
From Times Wire Reports
Cuba’s best-known dissident, Oswaldo Paya, detailed what analysts said
was the most complete plan ever presented for a peaceful transition to
democracy and a market economy.
In the first public challenge to Fidel Castro by a top dissident since
a roundup of opponents this year, Paya’s manifesto, distributed to
foreign reporters, calls for freedom for political prisoners, the
return of exiles, privatizing much of the economy and preserving
Cuba’s free education and health care.
Diplomats lauded the plan but said it wouldn’t succeed.
