Rosa María Payá, a puppet more than a new leader

Por qubano22005

Cuba had once again an active participation in the Summit of the Peoples. In addition to the "scandal" that took place against Luis Almagro, OAS’ president, the Cuban delegation, as previously, was the first to show their no satisfaction with the designs of Washington, which sent Mike Pence and Marcos Rubio as figureheads to impose the will of the White House and bend the knees of some Latin American presidents.

The largest of the Antilles, well known for opposing the tricks organized from the United States, days before reported the presence of Cuban "opposition leaders". The representation of Rosa María Payá, daughter of Oswaldo, was the first pestilential sign for the Caribbean people of the VIII Summit of the Americas.

Rosa María Payá was invited to the Summit as part of Cuban Civil Society. Interestingly, for the United States and the OAS there is a Cuban Civil Society and for Cuba, there is another one. The annoyance of the Cubans is precisely in trying to disguise the lie as truth. The Cubans, member of the pro-government delegation, went heat at noticing that, from the 150 young people chosen to participate in the Youth Forum, there was not a single Cuban, an act they described as malicious. Meanwhile, at a short distance, three members of the Cuban opposition were accredited as representatives of the island's youth at the meeting. The incident caused a war of criteria and political ideas where Cubans and official Venezuelans will be the discordant voices.

Who is Rosa María Payá?

Rosa is one of the daughters of Oswaldo José Payá Sardiñas, a Cuban opponent who among other awards won the Sakharov Prize. He was also the promoter of the Varela Project that compiled more than 10,000 signatures.

Although Payá claimed to have gathered 14,000 ones, these were never recognized by the Cuban State under the argument that they did not have a relevant legal accreditation, say notarial sworn statement. According to Cuban authorities, most of the signatures were false. Oswaldo Payá died in a car accident in 2012 and although the Cuban government proved it had been an accident due to the imprudence of the driver, a Spanish citizen who offered help to the Cuban opposing leader, the United States and the Cuban dissidents have tried to demonstrate time and again the guilt of the organs of Cuban State Security resultlessly.

Although the Cuban authorities and PSOE have rejected the Payá’s manipulations, she has insisted on showing that her father was murdered despite the car accident’s photos in which there is no evidence of collision with another vehicle.

Rosa María is the new champion of Cuban dissidence, but above all, of the Cuban-American politicians who want a regime change in Cuba using a new figure that does not despise money and becomes a parrot repeating anti-Cuban propaganda. She is also known for her friendship with Marcos Rubio and Luis Almagro who have given her all their support. Cubans, for their part, are right in arguing that the alleged opponent is an opportunist because what kind of opposition leader does not fight from her own homeland?

Rosa María is the leader of Cuba Decide initiative, a binding referendum, similar to the one that ended in Chile with Pinochet. So far it has the support of other opposition associations such as the Patriotic Union of Cuba, and several movements of independent churches.

Among Payá’s arguments, there is precisely that of being a "modest" Cuban citizen. However, the political refugee lives in a "humble" 300 000-dollar house in Miami, a fact that questions the authenticity of Rosa María Payá’s criteria; in more than one occasion she has reiterated that it is for security reasons. The funny thing is that in Cuba nobody knows her. There are a thousand of reasons, for instance, the opposition in Cuba is unknown since it lacks cohesion or prominent public figures. The most internationally recognized is Yoannis Sánchez, but the island is still "unplugged" and her blog is not widely read by the regular Cuban, who pays 2 CUC (50 Cuban pesos) for an hour of Internet, which is not definitely used to read political blogs. Younger people, for example, dedicate it to reading gossip from North American or Spanish celebrities.

The Cuban government's attacks are based on an alleged letter that the Cuban woman has written to Luis Almagro, asking for the OAS intervention to crest more pressure on Cuba to achieve the change. Although Payá has discredited the authenticity, the letter was the necessary fuel for the Cubans to turn the Latin American meeting upside down. Rosa María Payá, like other Cuban dissidents, lacks character and moral to accuse her government, whether her denunciations are true or false.

Although many of them have authenticity or are well-argumented, how could someone who since 2012 lives in Miami become a standard bearer of the human rights of a country in which she does not live in? The Nuevo Herald itself recognizes that she goes to Cuba only during a few periods of time. Even for the unhappiest of Cubans, it is hypocrite to have this kind of person as their leader in change. If in anything Cuba and Venezuela have beaten the United States is in showing that in both countries there are weak dissident leaders, reason why they do not manage to unite people in pursuit of the changes.

Cuba, one more time, although it does not have rockets or smart missiles, and even without Fidel Castro, has shown that it is a diplomatic and political power. Once again it has disarticulated the plans orchestrated from Miami.
