Cuba notes imperialism’s inability to bend the truth

Mexico City, Oct 8 (Prensa Latina) Cuba noted in Mexico the inability of the U.S. imperialism to bend the truth, at the International Seminar "The Parties and a New Society.".

Ludmila Alamo, deputy head of the Ideological Department of Cuba’s Communist Party-PCC, recounted the birth, development, strengthening and now resurrection of the Monroe Doctrine of 1823, enacted 200 years ago.

Alamo said that since then, the Americas for Americans was the doctrine’s philosophy for plundering and dominating, and in the case of Cuba, the doctrine used the metaphor of the ripe fruit by referring the country would fall by force of gravity into U.S. hands right after being detached from Spanish colonialism.

She recalled that Simon Bolivar and Jose Marti opposed such doctrine and similar ideas by warning in their times of the danger of the U.S. hegemonic expansion in the Americas.

The PCC’s representative denounced the Platt Amendment that perpetuates the illegal occupation of the Guatanamo’s Naval Military Base, which she described as arbitrary and contrary to the will of the Cuban people, and demanded its return.

In addition, Alamo criticized the subjugation of the Organization of American States (OAS), which remains as degrading as it was with Cuba’s expulsion.

Notwithstanding those atrocities and the Monroe Doctrine, Cuba has resisted. The Cuban people continue to defend its achievements, its independence, nearby the empire, the most forceful challenge ever faced from the South by a tiny nation.

Addressing the domestic current affairs, she referred to the serious economic crisis that Cuba is going through. The leader denounced Washington is consciously aggravating it by tightening the economic, commercial and financial blockade, even in Covid-19 times, but the U.S. Government has proved its inability to bend the truth.

Cuba pursues its revolutionary work with social justice and the construction of its socialist system without abandoning its principles of solidarity and internationalism.
