Former Polish President Lech Walesa advised Cuban dissidents

It is good to dream of that day--the day castro is no more, and the Cuban people can enjoy liberty and democracy once again. Many thanks for President Lech Walesa for giving words of inspiration and advice.
The former Solidarity labor leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate took questions from Cubans during a morning Internet teleconference at the home of the top American diplomat in Havana.

"When liberty arrives it's going to be difficult," Walesa said from Poland during the hour-long exchange, his image beamed on a projector screen set up in a salon. "We made a lot of errors. We were not prepared."
