Terrorism-inflicted Wounds Are Not Forgotten in Camagüey
By Raysa Mestril Gutiérrez/ Radio Cadena Agramonte
More than 50 years have passed since it started, but still the U.S. government continues giving green light, encouraging and committing coarse acts of terror, which have injured the very core of the Cuban people’s soul.
This terrible scourge has left deepest scars in the families living in Camagüey province. It is still engraved in our memory events such as that occurred on January 5th, 1963, when more than 7 metric tons of rice, a sugar cane field, a school, a fertilizer storage and several houses were burned and completely destroyed in Santa Cruz del Sur.
In April of that same year, unpatriotic individuals at the service of the imperialism attacked a rice farmhouse and killed its manager and wounded some comrades, in a bid to steal a small single engine plane and leave the country.
Some years later, in 1967, a person was arrested on charges of putting ground glass in the food of children that attended several schools in the coastal city of Nuevitas, showing no mercy for such little human beings.
That same year a counterrevolutionary group which was trying to infiltrate the country and had committed terrorist actions to intimidate the civilians was finally caught.
But the abovementioned examples appear not to be enough, because the mercenaries showed their teeth again in the 90’s. Members of the “Cuba Independiente y Democrática” organization were arrested in Camagüey while they were distributing subversive propaganda, besides they were also sabotaging the high-voltage power lines in the municipality of Santa Cruz del Sur, 82 km south of the city of Camagüey.
To impede actions of this sort, five exceptional men named Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, René González and Gerardo Hernández, put aside their individual plans and went to the haven of the anti-Cuban mafia in Miami to warn their homeland about execrable plots like those previously mentioned.
All people of good will know the greatness of their mission, which saved lives and dashed terror plans focusing on economic targets.
Pain is not completely healed in the families of those who died in the bombing of a Cubana aircraft off the coast of Barbados, an attack masterminded by confessed terrorists Orlando Bosh and Luis Posada Carriles, in which Camagüey province lost two of its daughters Inés Luaces and Milagros Pélaez.
The parents of those children who died in 1980 after being infected by Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), a disease brought into Cuba by lackeys of imperialism, can also talk about what certainly terrorism means for them.
It is exactly because those who live in Camagüey have gone through the bitter experience of having been struck by state sponsor terrorism, today we can stand on our own feet and demand justice.
