The Assembly of the Cuban Resistance and the National Civic Resistance Front "Orlando Zapata Tamayo" declare:
1. We welcome the release of Alan Gross, as we also clarify that the end of his kidnapping constitutes the exchange of an innocent American citizen for three convicted criminals imprisoned in the United States, for among other things: espionage against the US and acts of terrorism against its citizens. This was not a humanitarian measure on the part of the Castro dictatorship.
2. The Cuban resistance affirms that freedom, respect for human rights and the establishment of democracy in Cuba are not negotiable.
3. While the Castro brothers remain in power in Cuba, there will be no real change. To achieve the end of the unjust kidnapping of Alan Gross did not necessitate making concessions to the Castro dictatorship or release spies jailed in the United States for participating in the murder of Brothers to the Rescue activists.
4. We confirm once again that despite the appeasement and submissiveness of this administration, Cuba will be free due to the effort of the Cubans.
With, by and for the Homeland,
WE ARE ALL RESISTANCE!
