“We cannot say that the pain is shared.  The pain multiplies.  Today millions of Cubans weep alongside the loved ones of the victims of that abominable crime. And when an energetic and virile people weep, injustice trembles!”

“The CIA participated directly in the destruction of the Cubana Airlines plane in Barbados.The must repugnant aspect of this case is the use of mercenaries who, for money, are capable of cutting off in a few seconds the precious lives of 73 defenseless persons, people who had been their fellow passengers in the plane a few minutes earlier”.

“Imperialism, capitalism, fascism, neocolonialism, racism, man’s brutal exploitation of man in all its forms and manifestations, is approaching its end in humanity’s history, and their maddened lackeys know it; that is why their reactions are ever more desperate, more hysterical, more cynical, more impotent. Only that can explain such repugnant and absurd crimes as the one in Barbados.”.

“What could never be imagined by those who commit big crimes against peoples in the middle of their euphoria over their impunity and ephemeral power, is that the truth, sooner or later, makes its way through.  So has it been for those who crucified Christ for conveying a message of love and solidarity to the poor and oppressed of Rome, two thousand years ago, and even for those who kept Nelson Mandela behind bars during 27 years for fighting the hideous Apartheid regime in the middle of the 20th century.”

"Our brothers and sisters who died in Barbados are no longer only our martyrs, they are also symbols in the struggle against terrorism. They rise today like giants in this historic battle for the eradication of terrorism from Earth..."
