Conservative exiles hatch Cuba plan

Feb. 21, 2004 at 6:22 AM   |   Comments

MIAMI, Feb. 20 (UPI) -- A group of conservative Cuban exile leaders in Miami, including three members of Congress, have a plan for Cuba after President Fidel Castro dies.

The plan addresses everything from property rights to wages to political parties, The Miami Herald reported Friday.

The plan calls for the privatization of business, and endorses the right of urban property dwellers in Cuba to remain in their homes, but old private owners will be compensated.

It is a clear rejection of Osvaldo Paya's Varela project, a petition signed by tens of thousands of Cubans to make changes while working within the communist constitution.

Endorsing the plan are Florida Republican Reps. Mario and Lincoln Diaz-Balart, and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

The proposal was prepared by Antonio Jorge, a professor at Florida International University.
