Unconventional methods of waging war, such as the use of songs to promote anti-government demonstrations, are being used today against Cuba. The revelation was made in a special report broadcast on Cuban television Tuesday evening.
Havana, Cuba.- Encouraged and funded by the United States, a group of Cuban mercenaries is trying to implement in the actions designed in the U.S. Armed Forces manual, which includes nearly 200 ways of protest, the report highlighted.
"They try to contextualize in our country the famous chant turned into a battle hymn, previously tested in Ukraine and Libya, even though the current conditions are not similar."
The report also pointed out that the intention is to generate mobilizations and create a climate of instability, to encourage the use of force against Cuba.
In this sense, they presented Libya’s response in 2011 to the song “They can't take our freedom,” created by a Libyan-American residing in the United States, together with another group of emigrants. The song was intentionally conceived for Hip Hop because as the author himself explained, it was meant to mobilize demographic sectors identified with this music style, to overthrow the government of Muammar al-Gaddafi.
The theme was amplified by the mainstream media and eventually turned into a war song to promote protests and violent actions, thus setting the stage for the U.S. intervention that ended up destroying the African nation.
They also used that method in Ukraine in 2014, when they transformed “Warriors of Light,” by Belarusian punk rock singer Sergei Mikhalok, into the call for young people to demonstrate and carry out violent actions.
The Cuban television report remarked that the video was intended to be broadcast and came out of nowhere, had no credits, and was posted on a YouTube account with an unidentified profile.
However, some images show the logo of Radio Free Europe, a U.S. agency created to spread subversive messages to Eastern European countries, similar to other media dedicated to do the same work against Cuba, such as Radio and TV Martí out of Miami. (RHC)
