After six decades, the cast changes and the script remains the same. Such a
long-standing political strategy requires operatives to renew the tactics
in the field. The purpose remains the same: to employ asphyxiating
maneuvers until the prey loses all possibility of survival. The 243
measures taken by the U.S. administration to cut off the slightest maneuver
of the Cuban government in the midst of the effects of the pandemic, bet on
bringing the end closer.

Faced with this scenario, Biden continued in the footsteps of his
predecessors. Now, in a context that has even motivated the Pope’s
reflections and rejection, the President must find pretexts to justify his
policy towards the archipelago. Hence, the most active official of his
government on the Cuba issue threatened the independent and sovereign
nation of the Caribbean. To an international media, the principal director
of National Security for the Western Hemisphere, Juan Gonzalez, declared
that Washington will respond with sanctions if the promoters of the
provocative march announced for November 15 in several cities of the
country are prosecuted.

In recent months, through social networks, platforms through which the U.S.
Government intends to build a parallel reality for Cuba and manage its
interventionist strategy, the federal employee even exchanged with Cuban
influencers to expose the vision of his administration towards the Island.

Promoting the “free flow of information”, supporting political operators
associated with culture and “independent” journalism, as well as erasing
the legitimacy of the Cuban Revolution in the international scenario, have
been the matrices presented to the public opinion by the also advisor to
President Biden. But these ideas need their correlate in practice in order
to achieve their objective.

Weeks ago, in the midst of the VI Celac Summit, while several leaders were
betting on cooperation to face the current scenario, a president chose
“complacency” with Washington’s dictate towards Cuba, and was out of tune
with a sepia speech on democracy and human rights.

To support these arguments in the international arena, the White House
supports operators in Cuban territory. And now, once again, behind the
“peaceful” discourse, the intention is to stage an event that articulates
and advances the U.S. agenda and, furthermore, justifies it before public
opinion. Whether or not the purpose has been achieved, the strategists have
already ensured the counter-response: a justification to sustain the
blockade and to point the finger once again at the Government of the Island
for declaring such a “civic” expression unconstitutional.

The main promoter of the “peaceful march” has denied any link with
organizations that respond to the US government; however, he himself
revealed that the demonstration would be led by several citizens and civil
society groups of which there is evidence of their financial and
operational dependence on Washington. Among them, members of the
self-styled 27N Movement and the Council for Democratic Transition. At the
same time, all the press financed through projects of the NED, USAID and
other organizations with similar purposes, maintains in its headlines any
content related to the march or its organizers.

The date chosen for the performance could not be otherwise. They take
advantage of the month and the day of the opening to international tourism,
of the return to schools, of the restart of cultural life. Right now it is
the information that the algorithms in the large servers of the social
networks, all managed by U.S. corporations, rank in relation to Cuba.

Shortly before the mid-term elections that will renew Congress and
one-third of the U.S. Senate, the Democratic Party runs the risk of losing
control of Congress. The Republicans would only need five more seats in the
House of Representatives and one in the Senate to regain the majority. In
this dispute, despite not fulfilling his campaign promises, Biden reaffirms
his votes with the most recalcitrant and powerful representatives of the
Cuban community in the North American country.

A march or any other representation, in tune with the counterrevolution
industry, will continue to be postable content in the profiles of U.S.
government officials and agencies. Meanwhile, Cuba follows its own agenda.
More than 7,000,000 people have received the complete COVID-19 vaccination
schedule. Florida and Washington know it.
