In Cuba, Marcos Lazaro Leon Torres, National Coordinator of the peaceful opposition group 30th of November Democratic Party, was arbitrarily detained on Wednesday, November 1st, 2000 in the early hours of the morning by Cuban state security agents at his home located in the neighborhood of La Rosita in San Francisco de Paula, municipality of San Miguel del Padron in Havana.

This human rights activist is presently confined in a "tapiada", a cell with no sunlight at the Technical Department of Investigation, located at Cien and Aldabo Streets in Havana. Marcos Lazaro is 38 years old, a teacher, married, and father of two minors.

The 30th of November Democratic Party is an opposition group inside Cuba which struggles for a democratic transition in the Island through nonviolent civil desobedience. On Friday, November 3, Marcos Lazaro intended to participate in a peaceful act in the province of Matanzas, planned to remember the first anniversary of the incarceration by Cuban authorities of a fellow human rights activist, prisoner of conscience.

We urgently alert all international entities that promote human rights and democracy in the world that, the government of Brazil has granted Marcos Lazaro Torres Leon a visa, and is officially invited to attend the Second Global Assembly Of the World Movement for Democracy in Sao Paulo to be held November 12-15, 2000. It will be the sole responsibility of the Cuban government if Marcos Lázaro León Torres is not able to attend this conference.
