At the same time, other delegates have arrived in Havana for the meeting, safe and sound so far.

Support and Information Center, Miami, Florida, May 17, 2005, Press Advisory - 12 noon - The Assembly‚Äôs Executive Group informs that 6 delegates for the Assembly arrived yesterday in Havana; 4 delegates from the Las Villas province and 2 delegates from the "Youth Isle". These delegates had no relatives in Havana, and the Assembly found them a place to stay. Other delegates are already in Havana in the homes of their relatives, waiting for May 20th. "Coco" Farina of Santa Clara -  who was at the Military Hospital in prison together with Martha Beatriz Roque, is among the delegates.

The Executive Group reports through Martha Beatriz Roque that the General Meeting is indivisible. Due to the fact that there are some groups announcing meetings of the Assembly on May 20th in other sites in the island, the Executive Group wants to ratify that the only valid meeting is in Rio Verde, Rancho Boyeros.

These people are putting their lives, and the safety of their families, in danger to promote human rights and a decent government in their country. Sadly, most of the world is ignoring them.  Keep them in your prayers.
