14ymedio, 20 June 2015 — The second edition of the event Roads for a
Democratic Cuba is taking place in Mexico from 18 to 23 June 2015 under
the auspices of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Christian
Democrat Organization of America (ODCA). Participating in this meeting
are dozens of political activists and civil society leaders of the
Island and the Diaspora. The event will continue through the weekend and
until next Tuesday.

Among the topics discussed on the first day is the impact on the Island
of everything related to the talks between the governments of Cuba and
the United States for the purpose of restoring diplomatic relations.
Other areas to be discussed are the options of the opposition, various
proposals before a new Cuban Electoral Law and ways to strengthen Cuban
civil society.

Among the participants from the island are Dagoberto Valdes, Manuel
Cuesta Morua, Vladimiro Roca, Laritza Diversent, Juan Antonio Madrazo,
Juan Carlos Gonzalez Leiva, Wilfredo Vallin, Rolando Rodriguez Lobaina,
Rosa Maria Rodriguez, Rafael León Rodríguez, Guillermo Fariñas and Boris
Gonzalez Arenas.

The first meeting of the event was held last December 2014 in the
Mexican capital. At that meeting they talked about the diversity of
peaceful means to fight for democracy, the role of exile and the
importance of identifying the minimum points of consensus to move
forward, if not in the desired unity, at least in arranging purposes.
