8. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Silvia Hiriondo, President of Mothers and Women Against Repression in Cuba:
"Precisely this Ibero-American summit moves us to show the Cuban reality, to bring the Cuban democratic opposition to this stage and show the inhuman situation of the political prisoners of Cuba. To represent the Cuban people that aren't represented in this summit through the politicians of (Cuban President Fidel) Castro's regime that hold illegally and against the Cuban people the power in Cuba."

Foreign ministers from 21 nations compromised on a Cuban-backed anti-terror resolution on Thursday as part of a broad declaration their heads of state are to approve over the weekend, several of the diplomats said.
The Cuban resolution had been the only reported sticking point in the summit agreements for heads of state and other top officials of Spain, Portugal and 19 of their former Latin American colonies.
Late on Thursday afternoon in San Jose, a group called 'Mothers and Women against Repression in Cuba' held a mass to protest against Cuban President Fidel Castro's regime, and in favour of democracy on the island.
Meanwhile, another group held a pro-Cuban gathering that had among its guests Cuban Foreign Minister Felipe Perez Roque and other top Cuban officials present at the summit.
While Castro was among five leaders who were staying away, his country, as usual, was near the centre of debate at the annual Ibero-American summit.
Cuba had proposed a measure meant to show that it, too, has suffered from terrorism.
It urged criticising former Panamanian President Mireya Moscoso for the pardon in August of four Cuban exiles who had been accused of plotting to assassinate Castro at the 2000 Ibero-American Summit in Panama. It also criticised the United States for taking in three of the men.
As the meeting neared a close late on Thursday, Roque reportedly said his colleagues had agreed on language denouncing terrorism "in all its forms and manifestations" and calling on states to prosecute or extradite terror suspects.
The summit's "Declaration of San Jose" also reaffirms the community's condemnation of a US law that punishes foreign companies doing business in Cuba.
The focus of the summit is supposed to be on education and the declaration promises new efforts to promote and expand funding for education throughout the region.
It said that multilateral lending organisations should allow countries to pay off part of their debts by expanding spending on education.
The statement reasserts the community's commitment to international cooperation as the only effective way to solve "global problems and challenges".
At least 16 heads of government are due to arrive at the summit, at least for a few hours.
Castro isn't there because of a broken knee and arm, Chile's Ricardo Lagos and Peru's Alejandro Toledo are staying at home to prepare for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit, Portugal's Jorge Sampaio is ill and Brazil's Inacio Lula da Silva is hosting a visit by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
