December TUITAZO in Solidarity with Cuba

The International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity is launching an International Tuitazo to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the return of the Cuban 5 and the U.S. promise of a policy change towards Cuba. PLEASE FOLLOW US AT @thecuban5 AND USE THE HASHTAG – #D17CubaVa – TO RETWEET TO YOUR OWN FOLLOWERS AND SHARE ON FACEBOOK, ETC.
Although we celebrate the historic events of December 17, 2014, we also recognize the fact that little about U.S. policy has really changed:
1)    The U.S. blockade against Cuba continues intact
2)    U.S. citizens are not yet allowed to freely travel to Cuba as they can to any other country in the world.
3)    The Cuban Adjustment Act, the “Wet Foot, Dry Foot” policy and the Cuban Medical Professional Parole program that all promote illegal, unsafe and disorderly emigration from Cuba are still in place.
4)    Regime change programs continue to be funded by the U.S. Congress
5)    Guantanamo is still illegally occupied by the United States
The idea of the Tuitazo is to build around all developments that took place before, during and after December 17. And make the 17 the day of an INTERNATIONAL TUITAZO, a twitter storm against the U.S. blockade.
We have created a Timeline called “One Year Later” on our webpage 
The timeline highlights important dates around December 17 that link to text and articles you can use to create your own tweets. There are also links from the timeline to articles and documents that make it clear the struggle is far from over.
The Tuitazo will launch December 4, the day Gerardo was transferred from Victorville prison to begin own his long journey back to his family and his country.
What do we ask you to do? 
  • Start as soon as you can to participate in the Tuitazo, before, during and after December 17.
  • “Like” us on Facebook
  • Post and/or share information about the Tuitazo on your Facebook page.
  • Follow us on twitter @thecuban5
  • “Like” and retweet our #D17CubaVa messages.
  • Use the hashtag #D17CubaVa to post your own messages on social media.
  • Share your memories of December 17 on our Facebook page
  • Share the posted memories of others with your Facebook friends.
  • Let everyone know the struggle didn’t end on December 17; a new one began.
  • Demand the return of Guantanamo to Cuba, the shutdown all regime change programs and an end to the U.S. blockade of Cuba
Let us use the Tuitazo to not only celebrate the return of the final members of the Cuban Five but also to counter all recent lies about Cuba in the mainstream media.
Statement and Appeal from the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity
The people of Venezuela and its Bolivarian Revolution are in combat against the intense dirty war carried out by the opposition in that country, orchestrated by the regional right, old European right-wingers, and the United States.

The current situation represents a new escalation against the Bolivarian process of Venezuela, promoted by the right allied to the transnational oligarchy. They are preparing a new provocation and interference plans essentially aimed to destroy and eliminate the revolution and therefore the integration and unity of Latin American.

The old wishes of the United States to dominate us and to make the region its backyard, are reflected in the constant media war, the embarrassing espionage to PDVSA and the increase of advice to the subversion.

The Parliamentary elections in Venezuela on December 6 will decide the future of the Revolution and at the same time the rest of the progressive countries of Latin America.

Confronting the attempts by regional right and imperialism to undermine Latin American integrity and conquests achieved by the progressive Governments in the region, we must achieve greater unity of action of all our forces.

The Bolivarian revolution is not alone. It attained the respect and affection of all our peoples under the leadership of the ever-present Commander Hugo Chavez, which President Nicolas Maduro today gives continuity in very difficult conditions.

This is the time to join forces and stop the claws of the Empire that wants to devour Bolivarian Venezuela and devour us all.

To avoid “the low-intensity war” is a task that is incumbent upon us all. Ensuring the continuity of the Bolivarian process is of vital importance to the sovereignty of the region, maintain regional integration and curb the hegemonic and subversive campaign that the United States has established for Latin America.

The escalation of the right in the region is expressed in the claims of the ultra-right Macri, who won by a narrow margin, and will assume the presidency of Argentina on December 10. He publicly promised to demand the withdrawal of Venezuela from the Mercosur.

It is expressed in the campaign against Dilma and Lula in Brazil, against Correa in Ecuador, in the disqualification of everything that smacks of progressiveness in the region, in the United States meddling actions and the media spin on an international scale that appears to maintain normal relations with Cuba as it continues to pursue the criminal Cuban Adjustment Act, persists in the genocidal blockade longest history, and illegally occupies the territory of the Guantanamo Naval Base.

Imperialism tries to break us, and wish that we lower the level of mobilization, divide our forces and organizations and make demands that divert our attention. The old interventionist manual is in progress with new tactics to undermine us.

Once again we alert all of the world’s honest men and women about the seriousness of the situation which presents itself today in Latin America.

That is why the International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity calls urgently to the progressive parties and left, to organized labor, social movements, political actors, progressive churches, popular and human rights organizations, alternative media and the youth, to be part of a great Regional Movement in support the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela.
As stated at the Summit of the CELAC held in Havana in 2014 “America Latina is a Zone of Peace”.

That no one break our unity, because of that unity depends the future of our peoples.

Guantánamo, November 23, 2015
