Rigoberta Menchu against U.S. Bully

Guatemala, Aug 26 (Prensa Latina) Peace Nobel Prize winner Rigoberta Menchu Saturday described as abusive, abominable and reprehensible the fact that the US takes advantage of the current sickness suffered by the Cuban President Fidel Castro to increase its aggressive anti-Cuban plans.

"That is the very first reason why I signed the intellectuals declaration in defense of Cuba s sovereignty," said the outstanding social fighter to Prensa Latina.

In second place, she asserted, it is abominable that any government attribute itself the right to ride roughshod over people's opinions, interests and self determination.

Menchu referred to her love for the Cuban people and their spirit of resistance as the third motive encouraging her to join the signatory intellectuals.

"Cuba is an example of dignity and Latin American dignity is also brought to mind when it comes to crazy presidents like Bush trying to impose their policies," she stressed.
