Member countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America – Free Trade Agreement of the Peoples (ALBA-TCP) have indignantly learned of recent revelations made by the U.S. press agency Associated Press (AP) regarding another subversive plan financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This plan had as its objective converting young Cubans into “change agents” and organizing actions on their part against the island’s government, via the employment of young Latin Americans, recruited beginning in 2009 for this purpose.
This immoral project, which the United Sates government has cynically admitted to have designed and executed, confirms the hostile and interventionist nature of U.S. policy toward Cuba, and its intention of generating destabilization which would lead to the overthrow of this sister country’s political, economic and social order.
ALBA-TCP repudiates this new plan directed against Cuba, and firmly demands that the United States cease its subversive, illegal undercover operations which violate the sovereignty and right of the Cuban people to self-determination.
Member countries of ALBA-TCP express our strongest solidarity with the Republic of Cuba, and demand that the United States government respect the express will of the Cuban people to continue perfecting their social-economic model, and to consolidate their democracy without external interference.
