ALBA rejects subversive US programs against Cuba
Published on August 11, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- The member countries of the a regional integration bloc, the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of our Americas (ALBA), has rejected the most recently exposed subversive US program against Cuba, calling it an immoral project.

In a communiqué released on Thursday, the ALBA nations say they learned with indignation about the most recent exposure by the Associated Press of another subversive anti-Cuba plan financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) aimed at recruiting Cuban young people for subversion.

“This immoral project of the US administration ratifies the hostile nature of US policy towards Cuba aimed at generating destabilization of the political, economic and social order on the island,” the communiqué said.

The ALBA nations reject the new plan and strongly demand the cease of US covert, subversive and illegal actions that violate the sovereignty and the right of Cuba to self-determination, the communiqué concluded.

Member states of ALBA comprise: Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Cuba, Dominica, Ecuador, Nicaragua, Saint Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Venezuela.

Peter Binose:

Well done ALBA and well done Ralph Gonsalves for taking Saint Vincent and the Grenadines into ALBA without the express approval of the people of SVG.

You have done a great job in mixing us up with the whole of the Caribbean and South American Marxist crap revolutionary leaders, dictators and want to be dictators.

I am sure many Vincentians knew that we could rely on Gonsalves to not just bankrupt our little country, but to destroy political liberty as we know it.

As for our old allies the USA and the UK, if you feel that you have been stabbed in the back, well so you should, because you have.
