Promote Subversion" / 14ymedio

14ymedio, Havana, 26 August 2016 – Josefina Vidal, Director of the
United States Division for Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said
Tuesday that the internet is being used from the United States as a way
to promote internal subversion on the island.

"The illegal use of radio and TV against Cuba isn't enough, they insist
on using the internet as a weapon of subversion," the diplomat
complained through her Twitter account.

Vidal criticized the first conference on the free use of the internet on
the island, organized by the Office of Cuban Broadcasting, which
operates Radio and TV Martí. The event, which will be held in Miami on
12-13 September, will bring independent Cuban journalists together with
digital innovators and individuals who are fighting for the island to
open up to the World Wide Web.

In an article published by Cubadebate and shared on social networks by
the diplomat, she says that the government of the United States, over
the last two decades, has spent 284 million dollars to promote programs
of regime change in Cuba.
