By Daniel Trotta and Rosa Tania Valdés HAVANA (Reuters) – Two editors who helped turn a Roman Catholic magazine into a rare forum for open debate in Communist-ruled Cuba, then resigned under pressure this spring, announced on Tuesday that they will launch a new forum to air a broad range of views. Roberto Veiga and Lenier Gonzalez said their new project would be called Cuba Posible. Veiga and Gonzalez said they intend to create “a project of transitional change for our country,” citing the words of a priest who inspired them, the late Monsignor Carlos Manuel de Cespedes. It would not be a political party or platform, but rather open to a wide range of viewpoints, Gonzalez said in a separate statement.
