Bernie Dwyer on The Covert U.S. War Against Cuba

Bernie Dwyer is the co-director and producer of "The Day Diplomacy Died", "Mission Against Terror: The Case of the Cuban 5" and a Radio Havana Cuba correspondent.

The US has waged a covert war against Cuba for over 50 years, much of it under the radar of the American public. The frame-ups of the 5 Cuban political prisoners in the U.S. and the case of Miami CIA terrorist Posada Carriles illustrate this.  "Human rights" and "democracy" are used as code words for US aggression against Cuba. The "dissidents" movement in Cuba is used as a US tool to undermine the Cuban social system.

This new documentary by Bernie Dwyer and Roberto Ruiz Rebo exposes the story behind the lock-up of 75 "independent" journalists, trade unionists, and librarians in Cuba in 2003 through the eyes of four ex-Cuban state agents working undercover.  The mainstream media never fully investigates the role played by the US diplomats in Cuba in controlling the "dissidents" movement. In this film  former Cuban undercover agents speak out for the first time on film about the inner workings of the dissident groups they infiltrated and the various plans, supported by the U.S. government,  that were being developed to destabilize Cuba.

Tour begins 18 March in Toronto and ends in Detroit on 18 April. Scroll down or click on your city or country to the right for times and locations. For national information contact Stan Smith, Chicago Committee to Free the Cuban 5,  773-376-7521  uscubachi(at)yahoo.com

 


Workers Struggle Beyond Borders: Uniting the Peoples of Nuestra América

Wisconsin private sector and public workers in the tens of thousands thrust their fight against a union-busting law into news front pages. More than two years ago, the Mexican Electrical Union [SME] were robbed of their collective bargaining rights. Their union was declared illegal. The pro-big business Mexican government forced 44,000 workers out of their jobs at Mexico's second largest electrical power distributor, Luz y Fuerza (Central Light and Power), jeopardizing not only the workers but the income of pensioners. Find out how their struggle is like the one faced in the U.S. from the workers on the front lines in Mexico and from a Cuban representative of the World Federation of Trade Unions who will present some of the alternatives already in process in the Americas. An injury to one is an injury to all. There are no borders in the workers struggle against capitalism. Come out to learn about our common interests and struggles and the need for mutual solidarity.

Gilda Chacon Bravo, Federacion Sindical Mundial - Americas; Cuba
Humberto Montes de Oca, Interior Secretary, Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (Mexican Electrical Workers Union)
Pipino Cuevas, Secretary of Health and Social Welfare, Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas (Mexican Electrical Workers Union)
Jorge Cazares, Representing Section VIII of the National Steering Committee of Education Workers (CNTE); Mexico (VISA DENIED by the U.S. government)
