Cuba: Six Decades in Defense of the Truth

Written by

The Revolution knows how to fight and win battles in the fields of information and public opinion, assured Fidel Castro when calling ''Operation Truth'' before more than one million Cubans just 21 days after the triumph of the Rebel Army.

On January 16, 2019, the US State Department announced the decision to suspend, only for 45 days, the implementation of Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, "in order to conduct a careful review ...in light of the national interests of the United States and the efforts to expedite a transition to democracy in Cuba, and include factors such as the Cuba's regime's brutal oppression of human rights and fundamental freedoms and its indefensible support for increasingly authoritarian and corrupt regimes in Venezuela and Nicaragua."

Cuba categorically rejected Wednesday the announcement made by the Trump administration that it is considering the application of Title III of a law that would pave the way for U.S. citizens to sue foreign companies and individuals over properties confiscated from them during the early years of the Revolution.
