Dissidents press Cuba to allow free movement
HAVANA — Dissidents pushed Tuesday for Cuba's communist government to
include freedom of movement and foreign travel for all Cubans as part of
upcoming economic reforms.
Also on the wish list for these opponents of President Raul Castro's
government seeking to put Cuba on what they called "the beginning of the
road" to democracy: allowing Cubans to buy and sell their homes; and
allowing Cubans to invest along with foreigners.
Most of the suggestions are related to basic rights such as "personal
property and individual freedoms" to let Cubans hire freely, open
businesses and invest as foreigners can.
