The use of defamation by U.S journalists paid to conceal the truth about the case of the Cuban Five, as part of unrelenting U.S aggression towards Cuba, was denounced May 5, at the Parliamentary public hearing entitled: The Media War and Subversion Against Cuba, held by the International Relations Commission of the National Assembly of People's Power.
Fernando González emphasized that just as the people value the Five, their actions were an expression of the ideas which all Cubans hold. "There is a speech by Army General Raúl Castro, in which he stated that the Five are not an anomaly, and it is true, we were in particular circumstances and we did exactly what 11 million Cubans would have done."
As part of International Relations Commission’s closing statement, Alberto Núñez, denounced the recent ZunZuneo subversion operation, directed specifically towards young Cubans, and other ongoing actions, from the creation of Radio Martí and TV Martí, misnamed after the Cuban national hero, and the inclusion of Cuba on the list of countries sponsoring terrorism, to the crude defamation campaign against the Cuban Five.
Also as part of the declaration, Nuñez expressed appreciation to world parliaments and parliamentary friendship groups with Cuba for their condemnation of the criminal policy which violates Cuban sovereignty, U.S. law, and International Union of Telecommunications regulations.
