In an article published in the website Cubadebate, the intellectual noted that the former foreign minister was an example of diplomacy in his country, Latin America and the world, with a speech capable of shaking international organizations and in defense of people’s rights.
The writer specialized in international issues defined Alarcon as an authentic communist militant whose work will remain in the history of resistance in the world.
She underscored the politician’s efforts as president of the National Assembly of People’s Power (Parliament) for 20 years and his constant condemnation of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, considered a violation of human rights.
In this regard, she said that every year, “due to Cuba’s deep and creative diplomatic work, the number of countries calling for the lifting of that coercive policy is renewed and increased.”
The author of “Los años del lobo: Operación Cóndor” (The Wolf Years: Operation Condor), remarked how Alarcon raised his voice to defend the five anti-terrorist heroes imprisoned in the United States since 1998 just for trying to prevent criminal acts against Cuba.
“No one was more eloquent and persistent. No one was more constant. No one made more his own the ideas and decisions of the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, for the cause of the Cuban Five,” she said.
