Australian Solidarity network with Latin America rejects Cuba's inclusion in the list of countries that do not cooperate in counter-terrorism efforts.

Canberra, 18 May.  - The Australian Solidarity with Latin America (ASLA) rejected the unjust inclusion of Cuba by the United States government in the list of countries that do not cooperate in the fight against terrorism.

In its statement, ASLA clarifies that the Caribbean nation has never engaged in terrorist actions of any kind, but, on the contrary, terrorism has been used by the US government itself to destroy the country since the defeat of Fulgencio Batista.  This is conclusively demonstrated by innumerable events that have left a deep and painful mark on the people and history of Cuba, such as Mongoose Operation, the Cubana de Aviación aircraft bombing in Barbados in 1976, the attack on the Copacabana hotel in 1997 where the young Italian Fabio Di Celmo died and, recently, the shooting at the the Cuban Embassy in Washington.

In an admirable gesture of solidarity, ASLA members reiterate their support for the Cuban people and its Revolution, demanding the exclusion of Cuba from the infamous list, as well as the end of the blockade and the return of the illegally occupied territory of Guantanamo base by the United States.
