“We are not going to surrender, we are going to continue resisting, but with the concept of creative resistance, which is precisely the way in which we have faced COVID-19, that is, we resist, but with talent, effort and intelligence, we also grow; as we resist, we are capable of advancing.”

Dear Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, leader of the Cuban Revolution;

People of Cuba, Cuban men and women;

Compatriots:

Long live Cuba Libre! (Exclamations of: “Long live!”).

Free from foreign interference and free from the hatred that has been stirred up by those who have been holding the neck of the nation for 60 years to make it explode and now want to present themselves as our saviors.

Cease lies, infamy and hatred. Cuba is deeply allergic to hatred.   And it will never be a land of hatred!

We defend the Revolution, above all else

For 60 years the example of the Cuban Revolution has bothered the United States, stated First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, yesterday, during a special message from the Palace of the Revolution explaining to the people the most recent provocation orchestrated by small groups of counterrevolutionaries.

For 60 years the example of the Cuban Revolution has bothered the United States, stated First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, yesterday, during a special message from the Palace of the Revolution explaining to the people the most recent provocation orchestrated by small groups of counterrevolutionaries.

The President began his remarks with a revolutionary greeting to the entire people, and said: “Unfortunately, we have been obliged to interrupt our Sunday, that all our families take to rest and spend time together, to inform you and share with you a series of elements related to the events that have been taking place today, which are part of a high level, systematic, escalating provocation, which has been promoted by the counterrevolution over these days.”

What is the background to this situation we are experiencing, he asked.

“We have been honest, we have been open, we have been clear, and at all times we have explained the complexities of the current situation to our people. I remember that more than a year and a half ago, when the second half of 2019 was just starting, we had to explain that we were heading toward a difficult conjuncture, and we used that term, which was later taken up as part of popular humor, since we have remained in this ‘conjuncture’ for a long time…Beginning with all the signs that the U.S. government, headed by the Trump administration, was giving in relation to Cuba.”

His administration is doing everything possible to meet the needs of the Cuban people amid the economic damage caused by the U.S. blockade.

On Monday, Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel addressed the nation to analyze the actions of those trying to destabilize the Revolution by taking advantage of the crisis prompted by the U.S. blockade and the new COVID-19 wave.

Accompanied by his cabinet, the President reviewed the country’s current epidemiological and economic situation, which the international campaign against the Revolution does not usually mention or even explain.

Besides pointing out that most of the people who took to the streets are not against the revolution but have legitimate dissatisfactions or doubts, he emphasized once again that the blockade has limited the Cuban government’s ability to acquire all the medicines that the people require.

In the short term, the arbitrary actions of the United States have prevented Cuba from accessing almost US$2 billion that would be required to acquire medical supplies.

SAO PAULO FORUM

Anti-imperialist unity is the tactic and strategy of victory

Full text of remarks by Cuban President during the videoconference Meeting of Leaders, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Sao Paulo Forum’s founding

To political forces in the Sao Paulo Forum, we call on you to mobilize in unity to face the new challenges, along with social and popular movements and intellectuals of the left…

History is made by the people, even if it is written by others. No empire can decree the end of history as long as there are chains to be broken, walls to be demolished, exclusions and abuses to be fought.
