Reactions in Washington on OAS Resolution ; Capitol Hill Cubans

Bob Menendez on OAS

at 7:19 PM Wednesday, June 3, 2009
At Capitol Hill Cubans

WASHINGTON – US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) today released the following statement on the Organization of American States General Assembly's resolution on Cuba:

"This weak resolution undermines the OAS's foundation by only paying lip service to the principles upon which the Democratic Charter stands. It allows for loose interpretation of what should be a clear set of fundamental democratic principles and standards regarding human rights, and we are already seeing this interpretation play out. The member states of the OAS could have used this as an opportunity to reaffirm a commitment to democracy and human rights by defining an unambiguous path by which Cuba would be readmitted. It would be a path guided by the fundamental principles of the OAS, including those outlined in the Inter-American Democratic Charter and the OAS Charter, and including the release of political prisoners, the adoption of basic human rights and democratic reforms. I will closely watch how this process unfolds, but a lack of commitment to democracy and human rights at the OAS will bring a debate into the U.S. Congress about how much we are willing to support the OAS as an institution.

"This is a sad day for the human rights activists, political prisoners and independent journalists who are struggling inside of Cuba to promote peaceful democratic change. It is also a sad day for the U.S., in which it has become evident that our leadership in the Hemisphere has ebbed to this low. This is the result of a long-standing absence of U.S. leadership in the Hemisphere and the continuing lack of a relevant Latin America agenda. Unless the Obama administration has a more expansive plan of engagement in the region, Cuba will continue to dominate the discussion and democratic principles will continue to erode. We could have used the General Assembly in Honduras to discuss energy, public security, and economic and social development. Instead, even after the unprecedented gestures of goodwill sent by the Obama administration, we fought for three days over absurdly vague language that we can expect will be the source of constant disagreement moving forward. Only by the administration having a hemispheric plan of action and a real engagement in Latin America will we avoid this in the future."

Kendrick Meek on OAS


at 7:17 PM Wednesday, June 3, 2009
At Capital Hill Cubans

WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Kendrick B. Meek (D-FL) issued the following statement on the decision to lift the suspension of Cuba from the Organization of American States (OAS):

"The OAS has demonstrated a willingness to overlook Cuba for its misdeeds. It has eased restrictions on a nation that has referred to the hemispheric organization as a cadaver, and unconscionable behavior by a regime that suppresses human rights and personal freedoms was rewarded today.

"The OAS has lifted the suspension on Cuba but has not readmitted the communist nation into the hemispheric organization and that is a distinction worth making. As I traveled to Mexico City and the Summit of the Americas with President Obama and congressional members, my message was straightforward: For Cuba to be readmitted to the family of nations, the onus of responsibility falls upon the Castro regime to abide by the Inter-American Democratic Charter.

"The ball is in Cuba's court to forsake a legacy of repression and tyranny, and embrace Democratic values and ideals."

Mel Martinez on OAS

at 7:16 PM Wednesday, June 3, 2009
Capital Hill Cubans

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) today made the following comments regarding the Organization of American States General Assembly's actions Wednesday relating to Cuba.

"The fact that the OAS backed away from Cuba's suspension is deplorable; nothing has changed in Cuba in the areas of human rights and democracy and in fact, conditions have only worsened.

"The Cuban regime has given no sign that it wants to be reincorporated; nothing has changed in the regime's behavior to merit readmission including its continued adherence to Marxism and Leninism.

"I look forward to hearing from the Obama Administration on how they will ensure the OAS upholds its fundamental principles in relation to Cuba."

Bill Nelson on OAS


at 7:15 PM Wednesday, June 3, 2009
Capitol Hill Cubans

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) stated,

"The Obama Administration has lifted restrictions on travel to Cuba by Americans with family there – a move that I believe helps unify families, which should be one of our goals. As for the question of the OAS readmitting Cuba, such an action should be tied to democratic reforms in the country, including free and open elections and the release of political prisoners. After all, the OAS is an organization founded on democratic principles, the rule of law and respect for human rights."
