Nicaraguan group rejects terrorist plot against Cuba

Managua, Jul 9 (Prensa Latina) Nicaragua’s “Love for Cuba” solidarity group rejected the terrorist plot against the Caribbean island planned in the United States in order to create unrest in the country.

The organization, which is a member of the Augusto C. Sandino Anti-imperialist Network of Solidarity with the Peoples, issued a statement in reference to the latest revelations about plans forged in Florida to perpetrate terrorist actions in Cuba.

The statement noted the arrest of Ardenys García Álvarez, 40, who illegally emigrated to the United States in 2014 and smuggled firearms and ammunition into Cuba by sea.

“The enemies of the Cuban people continue with the delirium of an alleged uprising on July 11, 2021, but they do not understand that these maneuvers were and will be defeated by the the Cuban people’s “homeland or death” decisive attitude,” the statement noted, adding that these kinds of actions are part of the imperial offensive to stop the advance of the progressive forces of the world, where the Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua axis stood up to fascist groups and supports the establishment of a new international order without Western hegemony.

“They desperately want to tarnish 45/19 in Nicaragua (45th anniversary of the Sandinista revolution), the 71st anniversary of the attack on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes garrisons (in Cuba) on July 26 (1953), and delegitimize the future and overwhelming electoral victory of the Venezuelan people on July 28,” said the statement, which underscored the importance of remaining alert.

The group stated that Cuba is not alone and expressed the need to close ranks and continue the fight against the United States blockade against Cuba.

The statement also denounced Cuba’s inclusion on the State Sponsors of Terrorism (SSOT) list and recalled that last May, the United States deleted Cuba from the list of countries that do not fully cooperate in the fight against terrorism.

“Cuba remains on the US blacklist of countries that support terrorism, which also includes Iran, North Korea and Syria, nothing has changed, let’s not be fooled (…) they are the terrorists,” the statement emphasized.

It called to unite to continue the fight for a fairer world for all peoples, and denounced Washington’s actions against other countries like Venezuela and Nicaragua.
