Raul Castro Ruz, during the act of proclamation of the new Constitution, which denounces the new maneuvers of the US Government. against Cuba and Venezuela and reaffirms the firm solidarity and support for the Bolivarian and Chavez Revolution, President Nicolás Maduro Moros and the Civic Union of his people, while expressing the just demand for the release of Comrade Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, one year after his unjust imprisonment.
The Cuban Revolution reiterates its resolute determination to confront the aggressive U.S. escalation, and prevail
Today, April 17, is the anniversary of the launching of the United State’s 1961 military invasion at Playa Girón. (Bay of Pigs) The Cuban people’s resolute response in defense of the Revolution and socialism, within only 72 hours, produced the first military defeat of imperialism in America.
The Revolutionary Government strongly condemns the sabotage perpetrated against the power supply system in Venezuela, which is a terrorist action intended to harm the defenseless population of an entire nation and turn it into a hostage of the non-conventional war launched by the government of the United States against the legitimate government headed by comrade Nicolás Maduro Moros and the civic and military union of the Bolivarian and Chavista people.
Several US politicians have rushed to celebrate an action that deprives the population from an essential basic service; leaves hospitals without the power they require to work; disrupts other basic services which are indispensable in the everyday-life of people, such as food, water supply, transportation, communications, public safety, trade, bank transactions and payments using credit cards. Such an action affects work in general and the proper functioning of schools and universities.
The sequence and modality of these actions remind us of the sabotage perpetrated against the oil industry back in 2002 by a US company that owned and operated the automated system that controlled the production, refining, transportation and distribution of hydrocarbons.
