  • “Well paid lies”, in Las Razones de Cuba (+ Photos and Videos) | Cubadebate (English)
    their plans are made public through their websites in the Internet although they have many other interests that are not known because they fall under secret chapters devoted to clandestine operations to be carried out inside the country Voice of woman One of these organizations is the International Republican Institute IRI Voice of man The International Republican Institute was established in 1983 It is a weapon of the most recalcitrant US rightwing bent on achieving their objectives through hefty campaigns of deceit and manipulation Its president is John Sydney McCain who has played an outstanding role in the Iraq War and has asked the Pentagon to send more troops He also has links with Lincoln Diaz Balart and Ileana Ross Lethinen both notorious figures of the Miami counterrevolution Voice of woman What is the role of the IRI in the USAID Cuba Program Current and confidential documents we have acceded show details of the destabilizing project designed by the USAID and implemented by the IRI Captain Marian The IRI Cuba program has two main objectives one to increase what they describe as the free flow of information to and from Cuba and two to create alleged NGOs Behind this subtle and sugared language this program hides its true intentions to organize in the country wireless communication networks with possibilities to transmit data through satellites The establishment of these networks contemplates the introduction in Cuba of several dozens of means including advanced communication equipment as the B GAN According to the program these networks would be operated by women youths black people and intellectuals who would be trained to use the equipment for obtaining information and transmitting it abroad This information would be of interest not only for the US government but also for media campaigns against Cuba The IRI does not operate directly in Cuba but through other organizations like Solidaridad Española con Cuba and the Pontis Slovak Foundation Solidaridad Española con Cuba has received 618 000 to work against the Island while Pontis has received a little over 100 000 These organizations recruit people who would be traveling to Cuba to introduce those means that the IRI wants to deploy in the Island and also to train those people who the IRI program is interested in recruiting Voice of man The US has many interests beyond the Democrats or Republicans programs Although many thought that the winds of war and hostile policies would change under Obama the fact is that in his tenure the delivery of funds has remained constant and unchanged for various campaigns including subversive actions inside Cuba through the USAID Jean Guy Allard journalist The USAID is involved in dirty work it deals with infiltration and is aimed at destroying the Cuban society Voice of woman The IRI has received 11 million from the USAID NED and the State Department In August 2008 the IRI signed with the USAID the current destabilization program against Cuba and received 5 million for its implementation This funding will cover until August 21 2010 Voice of man The USAID Cuba Program is more than the use of new technologies for subversion Among other things it deals with the preparation and training even at the US Interests Section of more than 100 people in informatics and journalism Additionally what they describe as international experts have traveled to Cuba to train and establish independent NGOs The full scholarships for university students are especially significant as they pursue the ideological transformation of the new generations into agents of change capable of implementing the destruction of the socialist program of the Revolution Frank Carlos Robin agent The US diplomats noticed the experience I had acquired in those trips and asked me to bring together young artists Captain Marian At the USAID meeting in Washington DC on May 2008 they emphasized the importance of finding and recruiting organizations and people in third countries capable of introducing in Cuba such means as counterrevolutionary literature and of training the people they intended to recruit inside the country A second important element at that meeting was the USAID s open guarantee to its collaborators that the content of their activities would remain undisclosed This is a violation of the US Access to Information Act A third significant element is how shamelessly the officials of the American executive raised the possibility of using the travel licenses issued by their government particularly the humanitarian ones as a cover up for these people who would travel to the country to introduce such means and implement their projects in our national territory Voice of man The USAID through its Office of Initiatives for Transition ascribed to the Democracy Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance Bureau hired the services of the company Creative Associates to set up that program The USAID has a longstanding relation with contractors although it was in 2008 when the US government first used that mechanism in its war on Cuba The contractual relation between the USAID and Creative Associates addresses specific aspects to develop a subversive program against Cuba The most important political aspects include supporting those activities that in various scenarios may help create the conditions for change before during and immediately after the transition The Office of Initiatives for Transition has decided to resort to a contractor Creative Associates to help in the development of independent NGOs The sources of funds will be the USAID and the State Department Voice of man It s no accident that similar procedures were applied by the United States in Poland in the 1980s during Reagan s administration According to a statement by Republican Congressman Henry Hay published by TIME magazine they did there everything that needs to be done when you want to destabilize a communist government and strengthen its oppositionists to put it bluntly the counterrevolution Voice of woman It s clear that it refers to the provision of technical means to the media Radio Free Europe broadcasts clandestine propaganda and funding Organizational methods and advisory to trade unions cultural

  • There will always be an Emilio | Cubadebate (English)
    they are part of the news published by the Internet so their work is based on that Believe me any of these women go there carry some pictures and that is considered a solid evidence by the US Interest Section The US Interest Section is not the only one that supports the internal counterrevolution What about other embassies Here in Havana there is a select group of embassies of the European Union member countries that are openly supporting subversion and I can mention some The diplomat Jacek Padee was attached to the embassy of Poland He was in charge of Political Affairs and he was frequently present in these activities Before concluding his mission here Mr Padee was given the task of picking up the videos I had taken in several locations of Cuba to produce a documentary film about counterrevolutionary Orlando Zapata Tamayo He sent those videos from his computer to Pedro Corso a ringleader of the Institute of the Historical Memory against Totalitarianism based in Miami The Netherlands embassy usually supplies resources to the counterrevolution particularly stationery It also provides them with access to the Internet The embassy of the Czech Republic supplies medicines to these groupings they summon the dissidents to its headquarters in order to document the human rights violations Mr Pete Brandel an official of the Czech embassy had an outstanding role in these activities The Swedish embassy is also involved in these actions The Counselor of the German embassy Volker Pellet adopted a flagrant conspiratorial attitude in all these actions He took to the streets to support the Ladies in White as part of his provocative activity That is to say in all these ill intended plans against our people and its Revolution some European embassies in Havana have lent themselves to this dirty game Regarding the way in which the US Interest Section works I can refer to the behavior of two of their officials Kathleen Duffy and Lowell Dale Lawton In one of the so called literary tea gatherings that were usually sponsored by the Ladies in White Laura Pollán the ringleader of the group asked me to take a video of the moment when she is thanking the Cuban American National Foundation for the support given to the group I shot the video and talked to Mrs Duffy who told me I have already asked my superiors for permission and using her personal computer she saved the videos I shot in a thumb drive She opened up a Youtube account on my behalf and uploaded the video During the events occurred in March Laura Pollán instructed me to convey some messages to that official because she was the one who monitored the alleged human rights violations So has been the case with Lowell Dale Lawton He asked me to make an evaluation of the actions carried out by Ladies in White especially after the rejection and criticisms he received from the media after his participation in those provocative actions Lawton has received through e mails the photos and reports he himself has requested from me Exactly the day after the counterrevolutionary march organized in Miami by Gloria Estefan I visited the US Interest Section and Lawton came up to see me at one of the Internet centers they have saying that he wanted to speak to me alone to ask me some information about what had occurred on March 25 during the provocation orchestrated that day The issue of those women has been no doubt very much manipulated They have a green light at the US Interest Section Furthermore those women have so far orchestrated all of their provocations because they have felt the protection granted by the Cuban police force and the members of the Ministry of the Interior They know these forces would never allow the occurrence of any tragic incident which is what these people have been looking for The US Interest Section follows all these actions very closely They not only support the subversive activities of the Ladies in White but those of all other groupings Right now after the decision adopted by the Cuban government to release the counterrevolutionary inmates I think they are lacking the proper grounds to carry out their provocative actions Therefore I have realized they are very much focused on exerting pressures on some Ladies in White among them Laura so that they abandon the idea of leaving the country They are putting up a media campaign whereby they are telling the world that Cuba is resorting to forceful deportation Here you can see how contradictory their policy against the Island is They first encourage people to emigrate in an attempt to show that the Revolution lacks support and now they do not want the counterrevolutionaries they themselves fabricated and encouraged to leave the country because then they will be left without any actors to carry out their subversive plans Who is really Laura Pollán Laura Pollán was a teacher by profession After she got involved with the Ladies in White she has given herself airs of prominence and lust for money There have been some clashes between her and the other ladies of the group for that reason She is a close friend of Eulalia San Pedro known as Laly a member of the Cuban American National Foundation Eulalia is the one who sends funds on behalf of the CANF for all the provocative actions By the way when I started to work as the journalist of the Ladies in White in my reports for Radio Marti and other media and Internet websites I usually mentioned the very frequent calls made by Eulalia to Laura during every literary tea gathering until one day when Laura Pollán herself and Miriam Leyva another lady who used to belong to the group asked me HE SMILES not to mention any more Eulalia s name or CANF in my reports because that was a terrorist organization and they were afraid that any given day they

  • The Cuban Government urges President Obama to abide with his commitment to fight terrorism | Cubadebate (English)
    year 570 children and 156 workers were trapped by a fire set by terrorists at the Le Van Tan daycare center These peoples lives were saved thanks to the quick and heroic actions by specialized forces and the solidarity of the Cuban people At the same time another form of State Terrorism employed against Cuba is biological warfare developed by successive U S administrations These methods included introducing diseases into Cuba that significantly affected the health of the Cuban people In 1981 agents under the service of the U S government disseminated the hemorragic dengue epidemic that killed 156 people including 101 children Several plagues were also introduced into Cuban territory to destroy the agriculture and livestock sector causing incalculable losses in food stocks destined for the population and significant losses of export commodities The U S intelligence services particularly the CIA were directly or indirectly involved in the majority of these actions in large part under the umbrella of Cuban counterrevolutionary organizations It would be impossible to mention the endless chain of terrorist plans actions and attacks committed against our country in just one address However the list of perpetrators is quite short because they are always the same Today we are here to pay tribute to the 3 478 Cubans who have died and the 2 099 that have become permanently disabled due to terrorist acts carried out against our homeland during half a century that add up 5 577 victims The Barbados martyrs are part of the long list of fallen comrades who we have not forgotten nor ever will forget Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada Carriles the authors of the Barbados crime and countless others against Cuba have lived and still live with impunity in Miami Bosch thanks to an executive pardon given by Bush Sr the CIA director when Bosch s agents committed sabotage against the Cuban plane and Posada Carriles thanks to the support of Bush Jr walks freely while he awaits a trial for minor offences and not for the multiple charges of international terrorism that correspond to him Until very recently these groups publicly proclaimed their crimes and cynically announced new acts of terror Had impunity not prevailed 68 acts of terrorism against Cuba would have been prevented in the 1990s and we would not be regretting the death in Havana of Fabio di Celmo a young Italian who perished during the wave of terrorists attacks against tourism facilities in Havana in 1997 The revealing declarations by self confessed terrorist Chávez Abarca broadcasted on Cuban television September 27 and 28 who was arrested by Venezuelan authorities as he planned to attack and undermine the stability of that brother country and other Latin American nations confirm the existence of new methods of international terror and provide irrefutable proof about the guilt of Posada Carriles and his sponsors in the United States Despite all these crimes Cuba has always been an example in the fight against terrorism and has ratified the condemnation of all

  • Continuation of Terrorist Plans from the US | Cubadebate (English)
    is now acting as an independent council to Posada Carriles to prevent his extradition to Venezuela and to help him face other charges that might be brought against him One of Congressman Albio Sires closest staff is Angel Manuel Alfonso Alemán a k a La Cota a member of the terrorist commando detained in Puerto Rico in 1997 on board a CANF vessel on its way to Margarita Island Venezuela with the intention of murdering Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz with high power rifles during the 7 th Ibero American Summit of Heads of State Alfonso Alemán is one of his main contacts with Posada Carriles and the Miami Mafia It doesn t come as a surprise either that the notorious Cuban American National Foundation CANF which for a long time sponsored a great number of terrorist groups bent on damaging our interests both inside and outside of the national territory is now offering the public just like the others an image of moderation while it funds and supplies resources for the provocative actions of the so called Ladies in White and tries to promote domestic discontent which they pay for with their own money and that allocated by US entities Targeting the Venezuelan elections If terrorism was no longer fashionable what was the purpose of Chávez Abarca s trip to Venezuela What was he doing during his suspicious movements around Central America Who are behind his actions What have the US officials done to prevent them from bringing their terrorist plans to fruition in Miami El Salvador Guatemala or Cuba How effective were the measures adopted by the previous Salvadoran government to restrain their freedom to kill The detainee has already admitted the destabilizing plans he would have carried out in that sister nation attempting to kill leaders of the Bolivarian process or hurt their image in light of the forthcoming elections on September 26 Chávez Abarca has said that it was his purpose to burn tires promote street disturbances and attack a political party to blame the other He has revealed that one of the most important of Posada Carriles current plans is to try to sink ships taking oil from Venezuela to Havana He also said that CANF has destined nearly 100 million to plans against Venezuela as it feels that the South American country is the financial backbone of Cuba Ecuador Bolivia and Guatemala According to his statements at the end of September 2005 they had plans to murder President Hugo Chávez To that end Posada instructed to use a 50 Barret rifle Ever since that mercenary left prison on September 2007 after serving a sentence for trafficking in stolen cars he started working in coordination with Posada to act violently against Cuba and other ALBA nations including attempts on the life of President Chávez in exchange for money At the time of his detention and in order to ensure such objectives he had instructions from his bosses in Florida to undertake intelligence actions in Venezuelan territory leading to the creation of the necessary logistics to implement covert operations This mercenary who has operated with Posada s support had taken refuge in Costa Rica Guatemala and El Salvador During the preliminary investigation into the case the detainee has admitted that he was recruited as a mercenary and trained by Posada Carriles himself who gave him firsthand instructions and paid 2 000 for every bomb blast in Cuba He received the instructions during meetings in hotels and other places in El Salvador Costa Rica and Guatemala where he met the terrorists of the Cuban American National Foundation CANF Arnaldo Monzón Plasencia Pedro Remón Rodríguez Guillermo Novo Sampol and Gaspar Jiménez Escobedo All of them clearly said that they belong to the Foundation and that Posada is a member of CANF in Miami said Chávez Abarca With the acquiescence of CIA and friendly presidents He added that Posada boasted of asking for CIA consent every time he was to carry out one of his violent actions against Cuba and that on one occasion he had said that the man who had interrupted the conversation was a CIA officer his handler who had called him on the phone He also said that it was easy for him to evade the very few inquiries into his actions conducted by the FBI and the State Intelligence Office in El Salvador As to Posada s personal connections in El Salvador he said that he had excellent relations with almost every rightwing president before the current government He mentioned Calderón Sol Cristiani and Francisco Flores with whom he used to go fishing He also mentioned his friend Rodrigo Avila who was police Commissioner twice They all visited the Foundation people in Miami he added Chávez Abarca related that in 1997 when the Cuban TV broadcast a program showing Salvadoran terrorist Raúl Ernesto Cruz León exposing his connection to Posada Carriles and CANF the former instructed him to kill the members of the man s family thus he now fears for the fate of his wife and children Chávez Abarca not only recruited and trained other Central American mercenaries previously arrested in Cuba one Salvadoran and three Guatemalans but he also set up bombs at the Aché disco and in the 15 th floor of the Meliá Cohíba hotel on April 12 and 30 1997 respectively and another one at the Comodoro hotel as an International Chess Tournament was taking place with over 40 children Some of these children could have been killed as they unknowingly played with the bag where the explosive device was camouflaged The bomb detected on the eve of May 1 st 1997 in the 15 th floor of the Meliá Cohíba hotel contained 1 5 kilograms of the highly destructive military plastic explosive C 4 capable of razing buildings bridges and vessels In that period the terrorist ring led by Posada Carriles and the CANF brought into the country over 30 explosive devices 18 of them in less
