The First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, rejected the “new hypocrisy and complicity” of transnational consortiums “with a known history of disinformation and destabilization operations in digital platforms against Cuba.”
From his Twitter account, the president stressed that “the work of the Revolution has a whole people to defend it,” and supported the message on that social network of the member of the Political Bureau and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, in which he denounced “the manipulation and double standards with which (dis)information consortiums operate” such as Meta, which “has the former campaign manager of an anti-Cuban Republican senator in charge of its policies.”
He affirmed that the private company ideologically biases its most recent report (in which it announced the removal of “inauthentic” accounts in Serbia, Cuba and Bolivia, supposedly linked to governments or political parties in power to disseminate their contents), according to Prensa Latina.
The company Meta, “instead of using as an argument the derisory payment of advertising, a service inaccessible to Cuba because of the blockade, should explain its own inauthentic and biased behavior by allowing denigrating, stigmatizing and generating hate campaigns from Florida against our country,” added the Cuban Foreign Minister.
Rodríguez Parrilla assured that, despite attempts to censor Cuba’s voice and make the truth invisible, Cubans will continue to defend the Revolution and its socialist system of social justice, even in the digital arena, in the face of harassment and destabilizing operations. (Granma)
