Proclamation by an adversary of the US government
Mr. George W. Bush: the million Cubans who are gathered here today to
march past your Interests Section is just a small part of a valiant and
heroic people who would like to be here with us, if it were physically
We have not gathered in a hostile gesture to the American people whose
ethics, rooted in the time when the first pilgrims emigrated to this hemisphere,
are well known to us. Neither do we wish to upset the officials, employees
and guards of this mission, who are given all the safety and guarantees
that a civilized and educated people such as ours can offer while they
serve their terms. This is an outraged protest and a denunciation of the
brutal, ruthless and cruel measures against our country that your country
has just adopted.
We know beforehand what you believe or want to make others believe about
those who are marching here. In your opinion they are oppressed masses
who yearn for liberty and who have been forced onto the streets by the
You completely ignore that no force in the world could drag a dignified,
proud people, which has withstood 45 years of hostility, blockade and aggression
from the most powerful nation on earth, on to the streets like a flock
of animals each one with rope around their neck.
A statesman, or whoever claims to be one, should know that down through
history really humane ideas of justice have been shown to be much more
powerful than force; force leaves in its wake only dusty, contemptible
ruins; humane ideas leave a luminous trail that no one will ever be able
to extinguish. Every era has had its own ideas, both good and bad ones,
and they have accumulated. But the worst, most sinister and uncertain ideas
belong in this era in which we live in a barbarous, uncivilized, globalized
In the world that you seek to impose on us today there is not the slightest
notion of ethics, credibility, standards of justice, humanitarian feelings,
nor of the elementary principles of solidarity and generosity.
Everything that is written about human rights in your world, and in
the world of your allies who share in plundering the world, is an enormous
lie. Billions of human beings live in infrahuman conditions starving, without
enough food, medicine, clothes, shoes or shelter and without even a minimum
amount of knowledge or enough information to understand their tragedy and
that of the world in which they live.
Surely nobody has told you about the tens of millions of children, adolescents,
youths, mothers, middle or elderly people who die every year but that could
have been saved in this "idyllic Eden of dreams" which is Earth, nor have
they told you at what rate the natural conditions for life are being destroyed
and that the hydrocarbons which took the world 300 million years to create
are being squandered in a century and a half, with devastating effects.
You have only to ask your assistants for precise data on the tens of
thousands of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, bombers, smart long
range missiles, battleships and aircraft carriers, conventional and non-conventional
weapons in your arsenals which are enough to wipe out all life of the planet.
Neither you nor anyone else would ever be able to sleep again. Neither
would your allies, who are trying to emulate your military build-up. If
your allies low responsibility coefficient, political talent, inequality
between their respective states and their infinitesimal inclination to
reflect in the time they have left between protocols, meetings and advisors,
are taken into account, those who have the destiny of the world in their
hands can harbor few hopes when, half puzzled half indifferent, they gaze
upon the real madhouse that world politics has become.
The purpose of these words is not to offend nor insult you: but since
you have set out to intimidate, to terrorize this country and eventually
to destroy its socio-economic system and independence, and if necessary
its very physical existence, I consider it my elemental duty to remind
you of a few home truths.
You have neither the morality nor the right, none whatsoever, to speak
of freedom, democracy and human rights when you hold enough power to destroy
humanity and are attempting to install a world tyranny, side-stepping and
destroying the United Nations Organization, violating the human rights
of any and every country, waging wars of conquest to take over world markets
and resources and installing decadent and anachronistic political and social
systems which are leading the human race into the abyss.
There are other reasons why you cannot mention the word democracy: among
these is the fact that everyone knows you became president of the United
States through fraud. You cannot speak of freedom because you cannot conceive
of a world other than one ruled by fear of the lethal weapons which your
inexpert hands might rain down on humanity.
You cannot speak of the environment because you are completely ignorant
of the fact that the human race is in danger of disappearing.
You label a tyranny the economic and political system that has guided
the Cuban people to higher levels of literacy, knowledge and culture than
those in the most developed countries in the world. The same that has reduced
infant mortality to a rate lower than that of the United States and whose
population is provided with all healthcare and education services and with
other extremely important social and human services free of charge.
Listening to you talk of human rights in Cuba has a hollow, absurd
ring. This, Mr. Bush, is one of the few countries in this hemisphere where
not once in 45 years has there been a single case of torture, a single
death squad, a single extrajudicial execution or a single ruler who has
become a millionaire through having held power.
You lack the moral authority to speak of Cuba, a dignified country
which has withstood 45 years of a brutal blockade, economic war and terrorist
attacks which have cost thousands of lives and ten of billions of dollars
in economic losses.
You are attacking Cuba for petty, political reasons, trying to
obtain electoral support from a shrinking group of renegades and mercenaries
who have no ethical principles whatsoever. You lack the moral right to
speak of terrorism because you are surrounded by a bunch of murderers who
have caused the death of thousands of Cubans through terrorist methods.
You do not hide your contempt for human life, because you have
not hesitated to order the extrajudicial death of a secret, unknown number
of people in various parts of the world.
You have no right whatsoever, except for that of brute force,
to intervene in Cuba's affairs and, whenever the fancy takes you, to proclaim
the transition from one system to another and to take measures to make
This people can be exterminated - it's as well you know this -
or wiped off the face of the earth but it cannot be subjugated nor put
once again into the humiliating position of a United States neo-colony.
Cuba fights on the side of life in the world; you fight on the
side of death. Whereas you kill countless people with your indiscriminate,
pre-emptive surprise attacks, Cuba saves the lives of hundreds of thousands
of children, mothers, old and sick people all over the world.
The only thing you know about Cuba are the lies that spill forth
from the ravenous mouths of the corrupt and insatiable mob of former Batista
supporters and their descendents who are experts in electoral fraud and
capable of electing President of the United States someone who did not
obtain enough votes to claim victory.
Human beings are not aware of nor can they be aware of freedom
in a regime of inequality like the one you represent. No one is born equal
in the United States. In the black and Latin ghettos and on the reservations
for the natives who once inhabited that land but were exterminated, there
is no other equality but that of being poor and excluded.
Our people, educated in solidarity and internationalism, do not hate
the American people nor do they want to see young white, black, Native
Americans, mestizo or Latin soldiers from that country die, young people
driven by unemployment to enlist in the military to be sent to any corner
of the world in traitorous, pre-emptive attacks or in wars of conquest.
The unbelievable torture applied to prisoners in Iraq has rendered
the world speechless.
I do not seek to offend you with these words, as I have already
said. My only hope is that in your leisure time one of your assistants
would bring these truths to your notice, even though they may not be completely
pleasing to you.
Since you have decided that the die is cast, I have the pleasure
of saying farewell like the Roman gladiators who were about to fight in
the arena: Hail Cesar, those who are about to die salute you!
My only regret is that I would not even see your face because
in that case you would be thousands of miles away while I shall be in the
frontline to die fighting in defense of my homeland.
