During his appearance before the diplomatic corps accredited in Havana, the foreign minister pointed out that groups established in the network carry out illegal activities that violate international law, Cuban laws and Facebook’s own rules.
As he explained, the private platform is characterized by a frequent violation of guarantees to citizens on truthful information, as it encourages messages of hatred and discrimination.
In this sense, he denounced that private groups established in the digital space carry out illegal activities, and based on alterations of algorithms, simulate the massive presence in Cuba of people who are known to reside outside the country.
As has already happened in other parts of the world and with strict adherence to the law, Facebook can be sued for these practices against Cuba, the head of diplomacy said.
In his speech, Rodríguez condemned the use of communication resources to stimulate a scenario of extreme polarization and maximum toxicity on the island, as part of a strategy instigated from the United States to destroy the Revolution through actions of so-called soft coup.
