Former Cuban prisoner of conscience Regis Iglesias Ramirez remembers Václav Havel and Oswaldo Payá Sardiñas

"I have read somewhere that in a totalitarian system martyrdom does better than thought. I am a realist and as such far from the patriotic illusion that the world, due to its hopeless ignorance, remains deprived of some fabulous intellectual" - Václav Havel

"Two years without Havel, the friend. One year and five months without Oswaldo, the father. The world is more grey without them, but they will always live in our heart with their light they accompany us on the path." - Regis Iglesias Ramirez

Original Spanish text:

Dos años sin Havel, el amigo. Un año y cinco meses sin Oswaldo, el padre. El mundo es un lugar mas gris sin ellos, pero siempre vivirán en nuestro corazón con su luz y nos acompañaran en el camino. - - Regis Iglesias Ramirez
