Cambio is the Spanish word for changes. CAMBIO is also the campaign to bring democracy to Cuba.

The first video set to the tune of Bob Dylan's classic, the time's they are a changin', this video is about the advances being made by the political opposition in Castro's Cuba despite the best efforts of the regime and its enablers in the U.S.

On the second video Cuban apartheid is caught on tape.

Monday, December 10 is International Human Rights Day, and protest marches are scheduled to protest to end Cuban apartheid.

From a Miami-Herald article

In Cuba, apartheid is not racial, but political, says Henry Gomez of BUCL. The political system keeps foreigners and Cubans separate. For instance, many public accommodations that are open to tourists and high-level Communist bureaucrats are off limits to everyday Cubans.

People around the world were horrified with the ghettos of South Africa. It is time to condemn the apartheid suffered by the Cuban people.

The vast majority of Cubans crave change, says Dr. Ferrer. We've endured more than four decades of stagnation while the tyranny has failed in the political, economic and social arenas. It is time to put an end to so much suffering. We advocate change in order to live in freedom and democracy.

Dr. Darsi Ferrer is the Director of the Juan Bruno Zayas Center for Health and Human Rights in Havana, Cuba, whose mission is to ensure the policies of international agencies that guarantee health-related rights of all persons are recognized and adhered to in Cuba.

Bloggers United for Cuban Liberty is a confederation of blogs and websites that pool resources and ideas for use in campaigns to raise awareness of the Cuban reality.
