WE SHALL DEFEND THE TRUTH WITH OUR MORALS AND OUR PRINCIPLES
The empire and its allies have launched a new crusade
In their feverish campaign they are using their
mercenaries willfully and to derive shameful political benefits they send these
people to death; they couldn’t care less about the fact that these are human
beings. They don’t mind the three thousand Cubans who have lost their lives due
to terrorist actions organized and funded in the
They cynically invoke the human rights they have trampled on and continue to trample on today with impunity in different parts of the world. They hypocritically accuse the Revolution of the death of a person, a common offender disguised as a political prisoner by work and grace of the anti-Cuban campaigns and the huge resources and means allocated to them, a man they sacrificed to use him as a spearhead with the purpose of denigrating the country that has made the greatest efforts to save lives in the world by sending tens of thousand of its selfless healthcare workers to assist people in the remotest places of over one-hundred countries.
They accuse the Revolution that did not hesitate to
volunteer its doctors to help Americans in
The Cuban Revolution has been consistent in its ethical, political and moral principles following the teachings of Fidel. Respect for the human being, which is the very essence of our system, has been one of the key reasons of the popular support our process has enjoyed from the heroic days of the Sierra Maestra, when we never failed to respect the lives of the captive enemies.
Despite the continued policy of hostility and aggression of the Empire, from armed invasion, terrorist sabotage and plans to attempt on the life of Fidel and our leaders up to the promotion of subversion and the genocidal economic, trade and financial blockade for five decades, the Revolution has never murdered, tortured or vanished even one of its enemies.
Can the same be said of the US Administrations and
European governments that shout their heads off criticizing
What they really find annoying is the moral strength of the Revolution and its loyalty to principles; its growing prestige in our region where it has become a major actor in the process towards integration and its smart and serene behavior in tackling the hard consequences of the international economic crisis and the blockade; and, its clear notion about the need to change everything that needs changing in order to conquer for our people all of the justice, as Fidel and Raul have asked us to do.
That is why the empire and its European allies devise
their plans in concert, coordinate the work of their security services, send
their diplomats to the streets to monitor the work of their hirelings in the
island, and increase the funds destined to subversion in
Now, they are focusing their cynical campaign on a new hunger striker, a man whose common crimes and counterrevolutionary actions were denounce by Granma last March 8, and who is receiving highly qualified medical care.
They globalize his show while contemptuously silencing his cruelty and criminal record, his assault and battery and his death threat against a woman doctor, the director of the hospital where he used to work, and the beating of a helpless old person who required emergency surgery for the bodily harm he was inflicted by this man.
They also make a fuss about the self-called “Ladies
in White,” who play along the enemy and live on the dollars tarnished by Cuban
blood and supplied, among others, by the terrorist Santiago Alvarez Fernandez Magriñá who intended to blow up the Tropicana Cabaret and

What would happen to these “dissidents” if they
carried on in their master’s country the actions they do in
The enemy resorts to all kinds of pressure. It uses
political blackmail and orders the annihilation by the media of anyone who is
in solidarity with
It’s not at all surprising. These are the same
perverse methods they started implementing 50 years ago when President
Eisenhower approved the Covert Actions Plan against
As comrade Raul said in the closing session of the YCL 9th Congress:
“We will never yield to blackmail from any country or group of countries, no matter how powerful they might be, and regardless of the consequences. We have the right to defend ourselves. Let them known that if they try to corner us, we will defend ourselves, first of all with truth and principles. Once again we shall keep ourselves firm and calmed, and we shall be patient. Our history is rich in such examples!”
We shall fight with our ideas in our streets and in every international scenario.
Next May 1st they’ll receive from our people and its workers a resounding and unequivocal response of support for the Revolution!
We shall defend the truth with our morals and our principles!
