CUBA has declared its decision to resist, as it has for the last 47 years, any new measure by the United States in reaction to a possible intensification of the policies of threats and aggression by the George W. Bush government.
It is very likely that on May 20, or close to that date, the United States will announce new measures to try to crush the Revolution and the economic and social project decided on by the Cuban people, warned Ricardo Alarcón, president of Parliament.
Speaking before more than 1,000 delegates from 70 nations who were in Havana participating in a Cuba solidarity conference, the leader noted that the threat was recently launched by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
The intention will be to strengthen the ill-named transition plan for democracy in Cuba, announced on May 20, 2003, which vainly seeks to overthrow the Revolution and snatch away from the Cuban people the social achievements of which we are so proud.
In another part of his speech, Alarcón noted that while the United States continues with its war against Iraq and Afghanistan and is seeking pretexts for initiating others in what it calls “dark corners of the world,” it is giving shelter to terrorists Luis Posada Carriles and Orlando Bosch.
It is the height of hypocrisy that United States is at the same time maintaining imprisoned five Cubans who infiltrated the gangs of south Florida to prevent any more terrorist actions like those committed against Cuba by Posada Carriles and Bosch, he commented. (PL)
