According to a report in Granma daily, the plan devises the training, distribution of material, money, technical resources and equipment to counter-revolutionary elements and activists.
‘Its funds come from the budget that the US Congress gives the Department of State every year, and from the so-called ‘independent’ organizations, such as the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED),’ the article says.
According to Granma, IRI’s first program against Cuba dates back to 1993 and was aimed at boosting a transition process in the country in order to overthrow the Revolution.
The funds for IRI programs exceeds 11 million dollars in contracts over several years, noted Granma, which is the official newspaper of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC).
It emphasized that the efforts by the enemies of the Revolution aim to ‘control information or, at least, highly influence what is read, heard and seen in Cuba in order to control internal opinion.’
Recently, a report in Granma claimed that agencies, companies and organizations such as USAID and NED have allocated nearly 250 million dollars to subversion programs in Cuba over the past two decades.
