Unrest in Cuba aimed at tightening blockade, Peruvian newspaper says
Lima, Jul 23 (Prensa Latina) One of the aims of the riots in Cuba was to further tighten the United States blockade, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, Peru's Libre newspaper reported on Friday.
The uproar 'was an opportunity to find reasons not only to maintain the blockade, but to further tighten all 243 measures' that aggravate it, said columnist Nilo Meza on the provisions dictated by former President Donald Trump in the midst of a pandemic, and which the Government of President Joseph Biden maintains.
After highlighting Cuba's social achievements, Meza denied that the Caribbean country lives under a dictatorship, as the United States claims, and is attacked because 'it has shown that it is possible to live without imperialist tutelage and that is 'A bad example.'
According to author, less than 1,000 people took to the streets with provocative actions that had no effect and Cuba will not give in to the pressure and will respond with courage and dignity to the attacks and aggressions from the United States.
He also criticized the spreading of fake news and images on the Internet about the riots and its use by media outlets related to Washington, such as showing soundless videos of revolutionary response marches as if they were opponents.
'Faced with the infamous campaign against Cuba, its government and its people are showing that they defend human rights more than the United States and any Western democracy' and much more than Chile or Colombia, where those rights are trampled on, 'he added.
