The former presidents of the Czech Republic, Hungary and Poland– who have experience with such things– call for more assistance to the democratic forces struggling peacefully against the dictatorship in Cuba:
It cannot be claimed that the U.S. embargo on Cuba has brought about the results desired. Neither can this be said of the European policy, which has been considerably more forthcoming toward the Cuban regime. It is time to put aside transatlantic disputes about the embargo on Cuba and to concentrate on direct support for Cuban dissidents, prisoners of conscience and their families. Europe ought to make it unambiguously clear that Castro is a dictator, and that for democratic countries a dictatorship cannot become a partner until it begins a process of political liberalization.
Yes, and not just Cuba.
