Washington: another 20 Million Dollars to Fuel Subversion in Cuba


The United States has allocated another 20
million dollars to encourage subversion in Cuba, Granma newspaper
denounced on Monday. The figure will be managed by three US Department
entities, according to an article published by the Miami-based Nuevo
Herald newspaper.

The Herald revealed a letter sent by the US State Department to the US
Congress, explaining that the Latin America and Caribbean regional office
of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bureau of
Democracy Human Rights and Labor (DRL), and the Western Hemisphere Affairs
Bureau (WHA), will be in charge of using the funds during this fiscal
year, which concludes September 30.

The US State Department’s letter was released just two days after the
countries with the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of our Americas
(ALBA) decided to expulse USAID bureaus from their territories, for
considering them a factor of disruption against the sovereignty and
political stability in those nations, Granma newspaper points out.

The paper denounces that the objective of allocating such funds is not
that of benefiting the Cuban people, but providing access to technologies
for some individuals in Cuba, who back the “regime-change” policy, and
give network services and tools to persons already identified as
collaborators to this aim.

The program will include providing PCs, DVD equipment, USBs, cell phones,
the Nuevo Herald said while citing a US Congress employee that knows about
the case.

The Western Hemisphere Affairs Bureau was allocated 2.53 million dollars
to implement a “distance training program on basic I.T. skills,” the
Democracy Human Rights and Labor Bureau got 1.05 millions to provide
equipment and software programs for individuals to collect information on
alleged human rights violations, which are not double-checked by any other

Meanwhile, the Latin America and Caribbean Regional Office was given 2.9
million dollars for “humanitarian support” to “ politically marginalized
persons,” meaning the funding by a foreign government of individuals
grouped in “opposition factions,” which is something severely punished in
the United States, Granma newspaper notes.

Under Obama and in an effort to destabilize Cuba, the US government has
resorted to a combination of traditional and new subversive methods, since
some 20 million dollars were destined to launch subversive programs
through the USAID and the State Department, both in fiscal 2009 and 2010.

A feature marking this subversive policy are the new attempts to influence
Cuban society, by prioritizing a modality of the so-called “Track II,” in
rhetoric based in less confrontation.
The potential of new technologies is used by the White House to keep
imposing its agenda on the media and negatively influence the Cuban
population, and fabricate alleged “leaders.”
Evident examples of this phenomenon are the “cyber-dissidents” and the
so-called “independent journalists,” who attend weekly teleconferences at
the US Interest Section in Havana, and whose careers are promoted through
big media campaigns or through the granting of significant international
prizes, Granma newspaper denounces.

Political and ideological subversion has turned into a crucial instrument
of the US anti-Cuba policy over the past years, as it seems to increase in
importance, following the evident failure of the international political
and diplomatic isolation strategy and the increasingly unsustainable
economic blockade against the island, the Cuban Communist Party’s
newspaper concludes.
