Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC), released the following statement condemning recent actions taken by the Cuban government:

“The NHCLC supports the democratic uprising of the Cuban people as they fight for freedom and liberty, a God-given right that cannot, should not and will not be taken away by any government. We vehemently oppose the dictatorial communist regime currently oppressing Cuba.

“We demand the Biden administration be clear in its support of the democratic process, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom to assemble and freedom of thought in Cuba. We commit to advocate and pray on behalf of those in the fight for liberty - that righteousness and justice would prevail and that the Spirit of the Lord would bless those who long for freedom.

“The Cuban government and the world must know that Christians will not stand idly by as evil regimes, governments and ideologies dishonor the image of God in our fellow men, women and children. We are asking every single church to pray this Sunday for Cuba — that God would supernaturally emancipate this nation from a 62-year totalitarian regime, once and for all.”
