E.O. 12958: N/A
SUBJECT: MAY 21 - DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH CUBAN PEOPLE
REF: A. STATE 46997
B. STATE 45792
1. Post discussed the May 21 "Day of Solidarity with Cuba"
with contacts from the Slovak Government, Parliament and
NGOs. Laszlo Nagy, Chairman of Parliament's Committee for
human rights, minorities and the status of women, will
consider making a statement in Parliament, or proposing a
political resolution from his committee on May 21.
2. Although Slovakia's NGO are active in promoting democracy
and respect for Human Rights in Cuba, no events are planned
for May 21. Two NGOs, People in Peril and Pontis,
co-organized a March of Solidarity with the families of Cuban
political prisoners in March. Both organizations argued that
organizing an event so soon after would dampen its impact,
and post concurs with this assessment. Post will remain
proactive in its support for events that promote democracy
and human rights in Cuba.
This website hosts an archive of all 251,287 US Embassy diplomatic cables that were released by WikiLeaks between November 28, 2010 and September 2, 2011.
While the cables are generally available at http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.html
, we find it hard to search or even navigate the site to read the cables.
We have made all 251,287 cables available here at Dazzlepod with the hope to make it easier for readers to browse, search, share and discuss about the released cables.
The cables are periodically selected and posted to our Twitter page
and Facebook page
for readers to review them.
