Cuban officials at the United Nations on Tuesday said the U.S. government is waging a "cyber-war" aimed at undermining the socialist government.
Cuban officials said in a statement:
The U.S. Government maintains unchanged its policy of subversion and interference in Cuban internal affairs, and its priorities of promoting internal counterrevolution and destabilizing activities, while strengthening the blockade and seizure of Cuban commercial and financial transaction all over the world.
A series of testimonial documentaries broadcast on Cuban television have revealed direct connections of counterrevolutionary individuals in the Island with the U.S. The documentaries also made public evidence of U.S. plans to try to introduce in the island illegal communication and spying systems with sophisticated technology, and how the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) serves as a cover for anti-Cuba CIA activities to fabricate social leaders, supposedly trained as agents for political change who try to influence youth and academics. The materials exposed U.S. plans of aggression using new information and communication technology.
In The Empire´s Pawns, Moises Rodríguez and Carlos Serpa, who for a long time lived side by side with factions that operate on the Island under direct orders of terrorists who live in the U.S., revealed evidence of how the so-called dissidents or alleged advocates of the human rights in Cuba received money directly from the U.S.
Rodríguez received instructions for plotting against the Cuban Government, even from diplomats of the U.S. Interest Section in Havana. He was sent by that diplomatic mission to Miami where he held meetings with notorious terrorists, among them Luis Posada Carriles, and learnt about the subversive plans to try to consolidate inside Cuba a destabilizing movement.
In the case of Serpa, he was instructed by the anti-Cuban campaign ringleaders to spread false information about what was supposedly going on in Cuba, through Radio Martí and other U.S. media. He explained the way such illegal activity was carried out.
In Trues and Principles, Dalexis Gonzalez Madruga, a graduate student in telecommunication engineering at the Jose Antonio Echeverria University, revealed he was contacted by U.S. agents to illegally introduce sophisticated equipment and install a network feasible to transmit directly to the US Interest Section (USINT) in Havana.
They tried to use Gonzalez Madruga's technological advances and knowledge for exchanging information and instructions. The latter destined to facilitate destabilizing activities within the national territory.
The documentary showed the whole process of introduction of such equipment hidden in items for surfing, and also showed that the major technological advances in the field of communications are used by the U.S. not to help the economic and social development, but to carry out destabilizing plans in Cuba.
In Well Paid Lies, Frank Carlos Vazquez, a Cuban painter, revealed U.S. plans to fabricate social leaders, supposedly trained as agents for political change who try to influence youth and academics.
Vazquez was directly contacted by an official from the U.S. Interest Section in Havana, and was allowed to travel to that country for alleged training. That project aims to provide a counterrevolutionary look at typical problems of Cuban society, and to create events or leaders for channeling the interests of the U.S. government with regards to Cuba.
In Cyberwar, Cuba exposed U.S. new plans of aggression using new information and communication technology, as well as the so-called cyber-dissidents or cyber-mercenaries, trying to subvert order and create confusion among the population.
“Cyber Dissidents on the Web” was the site created to prepare the main actions to defame the Cuban Revolution, for which the U.S. Government has enough resources, money and the use of wireless technology, as well as social networks widely used to spread lies.
In the documentary Cyberwar, different experts exposed the modus operandi of these powerful cyberspace centers in the development of the so-called “Media Campaigns”, in which they distort reality and attack socialism and the main leaders of the Cuban Revolution. All the actions of the independent bloggers have a unique pattern, the U.S. Interests Section in Havana.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Cuba reiterated in a statement issued last January, “its will, already expressed by the Cuban Government, to hold respectful talks about any topic whatsoever with the U.S. Government, as long as it is between equals, without prejudicing our country's independence, sovereignty and self-determination”, and stated that “it will not tolerate any interference whatsoever by the U.S. in the internal affairs of Cuba and will use all political and legal mechanisms at its disposal to confront it”.
