While most attention has focused on the 8th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party (Partido Comunista Cubano), a number of groups that fall outside of the mainstream of the current political economic model have also sought to have their voices heard. One, made up of lawyers and others, the Corriente Agramontista, has distributed a Declaration that appears below and is worth reading in the shadow of the major events of the 8th PCC Congress. The Declaration suggests that inthe face of the grave crisis facing Cuba, that substantial and radical reform is necessary in the political, economic, and social spheres. The PCC is unlikely to be moved, though its members will take note. The effect f these sorts of interventiosn will be hard to gauge, but that they may be made without substantial interference (for the moment) though at some sometimes great personal cost, suggests that someone is listening.
