The violence against the Government of Cuba awakens again and not precisely in the Cuban streets, where calm reigns after the riots of July 11, despite attempts and calls on social networks from abroad to keep the "alive" protests in stages of the island where, in the end, citizen tranquility reigns.

Once again, the most radical elements among Cuban émigrés in several countries have once again gained prominence in their quest to overthrow the Government "from afar", even carrying out violent acts classified in Havana as "terrorists", such as the one executed against the embassy in France.

So far the most significant case occurred at midnight on July 26, when three Molotov cocktails (homemade bombs) were thrown at the Cuban diplomatic headquarters in Paris, causing a fire in the building, with no reported casualties.

Although no group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, the European association  Cuba Libre, made up of Cuban émigrés who oppose the Cuban Revolution in France, expressed its "support" for the vandalism on social media.

In the "protests" against Cuba in the US and Spain, the protesters have had the support of US congressmen and politicians, some of Cuban origin, in the case of Washington; and representatives of the Popular Party and Vox, in the case of the marches in Madrid, according to reports from the press in those countries.

Propaganda machinery

The Government insists on ensuring that  everything responds to a plan designed by the US  to generate a crisis on the island, subvert the internal order, destabilize society, and achieve, from political and economic pressure to the use of fake news, a "consensus »International that allows Cuba to sit on the bench of« its accused ».

"Frustration compels the manufacturers of lies from the US to invent a virtual reality that they themselves do not believe. Cuba is at peace, despite the provocations of the usual instigators of chaos. In the face of media terrorism, the value of the truth, ”commented on Monday the member of the Secretariat of the Communist Party of Cuba, Rogelio Polanco.

COVID as a pretext to attack Cuba

Havana has denounced that the violent events, manipulated by the large international media, try to present themselves to world public opinion as "peaceful" and "spontaneous" demonstrations, even as a "social outbreak."
But, according to the evidence and the denunciations of the Cuban Government, these events point to another chapter of an unconventional war,  also known as "hybrid war" , "color revolutions", "fourth generation war", "soft coup or coup soft ”, as part of a manual applied by Washington in several countries of Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Latin America.

According to Cuban political analysts consulted by Sputnik, the soft coup variant applied against Cuba "is very similar to the one applied against Bolivia and Iran in 2019."
"Cyberattacks, destabilization campaigns through the networks, organization and convocation of marginal groups with no apparent connection to each other, paid for and directed by" activists "members of counterrevolutionary groups," analyst Raúl Capote told Sputnik a few days ago.
Sputnik spoke briefly with Eutelio García, an 83-year-old man who is recognized as a defender of the Cuban Revolution, who called "cowards and manipulators" those who instigate violent protests from abroad.
«Most of those who now yell like lions on the Internet when they lived in Cuba behaved like tame rabbits. They have never raised their voices here to criticize anything, less to protest, and now they are the most aggressive, ”Garcia stressed.
"What is necessary is for them to fill up with courage and come here, but their pants are too loose to confront the true people of Cuba, those who live on this island, who do not give up," emphasized the old man.

Demonstrations in Cuba?

“While the Cuban annexationists try to convince (US President Joe) Biden in the White House to intervene militarily in Cuba, toxic laboratories bombard with lies on the networks. The streets are quiet, ”says the Dominio Cuba digital site on Twitter.
The work of the so-called Cuban "influencers" residing in the United States, with the support of the government of that country, has been significant in the digital "war" deployed against the island, with the dissemination of false news, manipulation and decontextualization of images, and in the permanent call to belligerence.

Even though it has been shown that peace and tranquility reign in Cuban streets, these virtual operators from the US and Europe continue to harangue the rebellion, showing supposed images of riots, and attacking supporters with offenses and threats on social networks. of the government.
One of the actions that most repulsed most of the Cubans residing on the island is the request of these elements for military intervention by the US Government, an option rejected even by people who do not recognize themselves as revolutionaries.

The OAS puts its hands

Among the most recent actions undertaken by the US - according to Cuban authorities - is the call to the Organization of American States (OAS) to "address" the situation in Cuba, as a result of  the July 11 riots, an action described by the Cuban president as "shameful", after pointing out this regional body as "a discredited Yankee colonies ministry (...) called to play its sad role as lackey."

The US accuses Cuba of conducting secret trials against opponents and Havana responds

Cuba has expressed its conviction to defend the socialist social project undertaken 60 years ago, and the United States reaffirms its intention to overthrow the  Cuban Revolution, once using the exiles as a spearhead in its endeavor.

International solidarity

In the midst of all this political framework, the international community maintains its solidarity with the island, endorsed in the last meeting of foreign ministers of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), held in Mexico on July 24, and where the president host, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, highlighted Cuba's resistance to destabilizing attempts by the US.

In his words, the Mexican president recognized that Cuba is “the country that for more than half a century has asserted its independence, politically confronting the United States; We may or may not agree with the Cuban Revolution, but having resisted 62 years without submission, it is quite a feat.

López Obrador proposed that Cuba "deserves to be declared a World Heritage Site" and described it as a "new Numancia for its example of resistance."
