1. (SBU) As noted in our May 5 update (ref B), the Czech
government and several Czech NGOs promote human rights in
Cuba throughout the year. This month Embassy Prague and the
Czechs have engaged on several fronts. The Embassy has
scheduled and publicized a showing and discussion of the film
"Damas de Blanco" in cooperation with the well-respected
Czech NGO People in Need (PIN), for the evening of May 20 and
the largest Czech daily newspaper, "Mlada Fronta Dnes," will
publish on May 21 an op-ed piece produced by post, under the
Ambassador's name, regarding the "Day of Solidarity with the
Cuban People." This piece will appear also on Embassy
Prague's public website at http://prague.usembassy.gov. As a
final note, the well-respected Czech NGO People in Need (PIN)
published its quarterly journal "Cuba-Europe Dialogue" on May
12 (ref C), which includes its policy paper on the EU "common
position" on Cuba.
