Anti-Cuban provocation fails

Over the last few weeks, international media have reported the intention of OAS General Secretary Luis Almagro Lemes to travel to Havana, in order to receive a "prize" invented by an illegal grouplet, which operates in concert with the ultra-right wing Foundation for Pan American Democracy, created in the days of the 7th Summit of the Americas in Panama, to channel efforts and resources in opposition to legitimate, independent governments in Our America.

Sectors of the right wing representing the oligarchy, in alliance with the reactionary press in Brazil, openly supported by the corporate media and imperialism, have consummated in the country’s House of Deputies the first step in what constitutes a parliamentary coup d’etat against the legitimate government of the Workers’ Party (PT) and President Dilma Rousseff, which has been in the works for several months.

We have read with concern the press communiqué issued in the morning of April 8 in Washington stating that “Alan Gross, the USAID subcontractor imprisoned in Cuba for the last four years and four months, launched a hunger strike last week.”

Statement by the Director General of United States of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The information offered in an article by press agency AP confirms the reiterated denunciations by the Cuban Government. It is demonstrated once again that the Government of the United States has not abandoned its subversive plans against Cuba, which have as objective to create situations of destabilization in the country to provoke changes in our political order and to which it continues dedicating millions in funds each year.
