Yunior Torres, mayor of the Administration Council of that town, head of Holguin province, responded to a counterrevolutionary call slated for November 20, and then moved to five days earlier.
According to the response published on the Holguin government’s website, ‘no legitimacy is recognized in the reasons given for the march,’ whose organizers are related to subversive organizations and agencies financed by the United States, with the intention of promoting a change of political system in Cuba.
The document states that Article 56 of the Constitution of the Republic of Cuba stipulates, among the requirements for the exercise of the right to demonstrate, the lawfulness and ‘respect for public order and compliance with the precepts under the law.’
This reaffirms that the announced march, whose organizational scheme is conceived simultaneously for other territories of the country, is a provocation as part of the strategy of regime change for Cuba, tested in other countries’.
Torres’ response also refers to the fact that, immediately after its announcement, the march received public support from US legislators, political operators and the media that encourage actions against the Cuban people, attempt to destabilize the country and urge military intervention.
The Constitution stipulates in its article four that the socialist system is irrevocable, therefore any action taken against it is illegal.
