Cuba protests amid sabotage and blockade | Latest attacks target energy infrastructure

cuba He is going through difficult days from which he is coming out once again. there is no stopping America, nor a force of nature – most recently Hurricane Ian – nor sabotage to its thermoelectric plants that could bring it to its knees. Even after completing 64 years of her revolution, she is not alone. The Community of Caribbean States that surround it (CARICOM) have just reaffirmed their political support for half a century. The caravan of cars once again called for an end to attacks against the Cuban economy last week, with an epicenter in Miami. Also on the island, a forum of social organizations demanded, for at least six months, the lifting of sanctions unilaterally imposed by the US so that damage caused by the force of nature could be rebuilt.

Joe Bidenthe twelfth us President Which extended the blockade to September 14, 2023, not much different from the policies of Donald Trump. Not even those implemented by Dwight D. Eisenhower with his covert action program on Cuba beginning in March 1960. AleSubversion continues and the latest ones have targeted key infrastructure such as energy. Even though they are obsolete and there are no replacements due to the blockade, thermoelectric plants are reducing the frequency of blackouts that Hurricane Ian tore through western Cuba.

Eroel Sanchez, a journalist and blogger based in Havana, explains pageI1 that “there are now almost no blackouts” and that the energy deficit which had reached “1,600 MW” has been “below 300 MW for several days and continues to fall.” The system is most affected at night and coincides with peak consumption hours, according to Union Electrica, the state company that provides the service.

The strategy of creating uneasiness in the population due to blackout is not a new one. Nor does it only affect Cuba. Venezuela is also suffering after a 96-hour power outage in Caracas in 2009. In 2019 and 2021, two other similar episodes occurred that the government of Nicolás Maduro attributed to “new attacks” on the National Electric System (SEN). ,

The world crisis that triggered the war in Ukraine due to increased fossil fuel prices also affected the island, which relies heavily on this resource for electricity production. an article of cubedebate Published on September 14 of this year, states that the country has “eight thermoelectric plants.” It also reports that “energy production exceeds 6 thousand MW” if all forms of supply are taken into account.

Cuban television condemned it in a report released last September A man was hired by Cuban residents in the United States to blow up power towers on the island. a modus operandi that was also discovered in Ukraine with mercenaries of that nationality. Last August, he dynamited six high voltage lines in Kursk. In Cuba, the CIA has a notorious record in this type of operation. Those have gone far beyond affecting power lines. This trend of sabotage has never stopped since the attack on the French ship La Couberte in the port of Havana on March 4, 1960.

Intentional damage to sugar mills and crops, biological attacks such as swine flu and hemorrhagic dengue fever, attacks against tourist infrastructure, not to mention multiple assassination attempts against Fidel Castro, the historic leader of the Revolution, and the 1976 Flight 455 attack In Cubana de Aviación – with 73 deaths, 57 of them Cubans – there are few facts where the involvement of the CIA and its undercover agents in destabilizing the government or making life on the island impossible was verified.

newspaper grandma On 4 October it denounced that one of the organizations operating on the island is called the Self-Defense of the People (ADP), which has “an action plan, a very well organized structure and many command links, Which is directed by a council. The war, directed by the notorious terrorist Manuel Milanes as president”. According to Cuban TV, Lázaro García Ríos, one of the detainees to attack this year with Molotov cocktails the Municipal Court of Centro Habana and the headquarters of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution in the capital, betrayed other members of the ADP.

The island is vulnerable to this type of attack regardless of whether the party in control of the US, Republicans or Democrats, besieges the country in policy without any duplicity or contradiction. They pursue their economic suffocation until they force a transformation of the socialist system. Before leaving the presidency, Donald Trump included Cuba in the list of countries sponsoring terrorism. Biden stuck to that decision. John F. Kennedy supported the invasion of Playa Girón during his tenure. And Eisenhower was the harbinger of the first measures against the revolution more than sixty years ago.

The covert action program of the Republican generals who ruled the United States between 1953 and 1961 did not change anything, including, in its critical mass, part of select groups of Cubans who could carry out any mission on their own initiative.

Support for the island that spanned eight decades (1959–2022) did not change, but rather increased. Its closest neighbors, the Caribbean, celebrated the 50th anniversary of full diplomatic relations with Cuba last Thursday. An initiative was taken on December 8, 1972, by the governments of Jamaica, Barbados, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago, despite pressure from Washington.

The successive UN resolutions calling for an end to the blockade for the thirtieth time last November, and that today only the United States and Israel vote alone, are evidence of a second failure, diplomatic. The siege of the island turns sixty years old on 3 February this year. It has been an impossible record to fix since it was approved by the Kennedy administration. According to most historians, the site of Ceuta is closest to it. This went on for 33 years. It started in the 17th century and ended in the 18th century.
