There is no opposition in Cuba, there are just opponents

Martha Beatriz Roque Cabello was born in 1945 into a family that supported the Castro regime in the Cuban Revolution of 1959. At first, Martha believed in the Revolution, but the execution of General Arnaldo Ochoa provided a crude awakening to her revolutionary ideals. In 1990 she joined the Cuban opposition, and since then she has risen to international fame as the "Iron Lady of the Cuban opposition". In 1997 together with Vladimiro Roca, Félix Bonne and René Gómez, she worked out the document "La Patria Es de Todos" (The Homeland Belongs to Everyone), which caused the four authors to be imprisoned. In 2000 she was released, only to be interned again in the Black Spring of Cuba in 2003, this time with a sentence of 20 years of deprivation of liberty, of which she served 7 years. She resides in Havana under the meticulous surveillance of State Security.
