The changes to the B2 Visa were put into effective as of Jan. 18, limiting travel time within the U.S. from five years to three months.

The Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Minrez) is rejecting the ‘unfair’ adjustments made to B2 Visas, which decrease the length of time allotted to Cuban visitors traveling in the U.S. from five years to three months.

US Regime Change Blueprint Proposed Venezuelan Electricity Blackouts To Incite Public Unrest

The US-Funded CANVAS Organization That Trained Juan Guaido And His Allies Produced A 2010 Memo On Exploiting Electricity Outages And Urged The Opposition “To Take Advantage Of The Situation…Towards Their Needs”

September 2010 memo by a US-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaido and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as “a watershed event” that “would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate.”

The memo has special relevance today as Guaido moves to exploit nationwide blackouts caused by a major failure at the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant at Guri dam – a crisis that Venezuela’s government blames on US sabotage.

It was authored by Srdja Popovic of the Center for Applied Non-Violent Action and Strategies (CANVAS), a Belgrade-based “democracy…

Carlos Alberto Montaner, agente de la CIA para desacreditar a #Cuba y #Venezuela

Cuba por Siempre Agustín Palermo

Me entero por la Internet que el periódico La Nación de Costa Rica, tiene entre sus filas como publicista a Carlos Alberto Montaner, agente de la Agencia Central de Inteligencia (CIA) de los Estados Unidos que, un domingo sí y otro también, derrama bilis contra Cuba y Venezuela. Ignoro si en el pasado ese diario tuvo algún prestigio que no sea el comercial, pero lo que es el presente, no sólo es vergonzoso sino patético; Montaner es el columnista calumniador.

Cuba’s Ambassador responds to unsubstantiated claims in CBC News article, “Canada at odds with Cuban ‘ally’ over Maduro’s fate.”

Ottawa, March 3, 2019

To the Editor of CBC News

josefina vidal.jpgI reject categorically and in the strongest terms the tendentious and manipulative article “Canada at odds with Cuba ‘ally’ over Maduro’s fate”, written by journalist Evan Dyer and published today, Sunday, March 3, 2019, by CBC News.

Good journalism does not speculate, it informs objectively.

The assertion that thousands of Cubans would allegedly be inserted into the structures of the armed and security forces of Venezuela, holding the government of (legitimate) President Nicolás Maduro, is a scandalous slander. I demand that CBC News present a proof, which evidently it does not have, since it does not appear in the whole article.

What Cuba has been offering Venezuela for many years is a modest cooperation, in which…

teleSUR correspondent in Venezuela said Venezuelan immigration Police were securing the border point and that members of the Venezuelan army were deployed at the scene.

A group of low-level soldiers of the Venezuelan National Guard Saturday took over multiple armored vehicles that belong to the Venezuelan force and rammed into border barriers at the Venezuelan-Colombian border in a staged operation ordered by right-wing opposition members in Colombia.

According to teleSUR reporters at the scene, armored vehicles of the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) rammed into the Venezuelan security barrier installed in the Simon Bolivar international bridge and then three attackers fled to Colombia where they were received by two leaders of the Venezuelan far right.

Securing the border point

teleSUR correspondent in Venezuela Madeleine García said that Venezuelan immigration Police were securing the border point and that members of the Venezuelan army were deployed at the scene. “Three soldiers were moved to Colombian territory, but not all the armed forces of Venezuela.”

As we sit here, there is US aid across the border in Colombia. We have met many people here who tell us they are desperately in need of aid. Why not allow it through?

Nicolás Maduro, Venezuelan president

First of all, it’s a show, that the United States government has set up with the compliance of the Colombian government to humiliate the Venezuelans. Venezuela is a country that has the capacity to satisfy all the necessities of our people.

Venezuela is a country that has problems like any country. We are in a battle that has been going on for many years, a successful battle, to reduce poverty, misery, in order to increase the job capacity, to establish a social security system to protect 100% of our pensioners, in order to establish a public health system that reaches all the Venezuelan…
