Cuban Parliament Denounces US Media War
HAVANA, Cuba, May 6 (acn) The Cuban Parliament denounced on Monday the US media war against the island in a context marked by the use of new Information and communication technologies with subversive aims.
During a public hearing, lawmaker Alberto Nuñez read a statement issued by the Parliament's International Relations Committee criticizing the US destabilizing actions which have taken place since the 1959 triumph of the Cuban Revolution.
The lawmaker recalled that the US's anti-Cuba media war included means such as Radio Swan, the Voice of America, the so-called Radio and TV Marti, among others.
In this context, the Miami-based mercenary media carried out a defamatory campaign during the trial against Cuban anti-terrorist fighters Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez, the deputy said.
The lawmaker also criticized the US government for having created a communication network called Zunzuneo, through the US Agency for International Development (USAID), aimed at influencing Cuban youths with subversive objectives.
This operation confirmed that US anti-Cuba actions aim at the new generations and are marked by the use of new information technologies, Nunez said.
In the face of such destabilization plans, the Cuban Parliament denounced the aggression and thanks other parliaments of the world for their actions against such policies, which violate Cuban sovereignty, US laws and the regulations and standards of the International Telecommunications Union.
