Two human rights activists from the island nation spoke about what it
will take to secure democracy in the country.

Rosa María Payá with the Christian Liberation Movement and Cuba Decide
and Oswaldo Payá were invited to the university by the Department of
Political Science.

Cuba Decide is a citizen initiative that coordinates the efforts of
those seeking a binding referendum to bring about free, pluralistic, and
fair elections on the island.

"Its important that we all understand is that because Fidel Castro is
gone that doesn't mean that there is a transition process going on in
the island," Payá says. "The transition process is going to start in the
moment in which the Cuban people could have a voice. And in order to
have a voice we need also the support of the international community and
the American people."
