st political forces on the planet to demand his release and to stop the attacks and judicial persecution of the Dilma Rousseff and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
Promovieron procesos judiciales fraudulentos y políticamente motivados, así como campañas manipulativas para desacreditar a los líderes y organizaciones de izquierda, haciendo uso de su control monopolístico de los medios de comunicación. De esta manera, lograron encarcelar al compañero Lula da Silva y lo privaron del derecho a postularse a la presidencia como candidato del Partido de los Trabajadores, para evitar su victoria segura en las últimas elecciones. Aprovecho esta oportunidad para apelar a todas las fuerzas políticas honestas del planeta para exigir su liberación y detener los ataques y la persecución judicial de Dilma Rousseff y Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Aquellos que se hacen ilusiones sobre la restauración de la dominación imperialista en nuestra región deben entender que América Latina y el Caribe han cambiado, y el mundo, también. La escalada de la guerra económica, con el fortalecimiento del bloqueo y la aplicación continua de la Ley Helms-Burton, refleja el deseo de larga data de derrocar a la Revolución Cubana a través de la asfixia económica y las dificultades. Esta aspiración ha fallado en el pasado y volverá a fallar.

that the government of the United States disdains, because we believe in social justice, in balanced and sustainable development, with fair distribution of wealth and guarantees of quality services for the entire population; we practice solidarity and reject self-interest, we share not what we have left over, but even what we lack; we repudiate all forms of social discrimination and fight organized crime, drug trafficking, terrorism, trafficking in persons and all forms of slavery; we defend the human rights of all citizens, not of exclusive and privileged segments; we believe in the democracy of the people and not in the political and undemocratic power of capital; we seek to promote the prosperity of the homeland, in harmony with nature and caring for the resources on which life on the planet depends; and because we are convinced that a better world is possible.
Defendemos el socialismo, un sistema que el gobierno de Estados Unidos desdeña, porque creemos en la justicia social, en un desarrollo equilibrado y sostenible, con una distribución justa de la riqueza y garantías de servicios de calidad para toda la población; practicamos la solidaridad y rechazamos el interés propio, compartimos no lo que nos queda, sino incluso lo que nos falta; Repudiamos todas las formas de discriminación social y combatimos la delincuencia organizada, el narcotráfico, el terrorismo, la trata de personas y todas las formas de esclavitud; Defendemos los derechos humanos de todos los ciudadanos, no de segmentos exclusivos y privilegiados; creemos en la democracia del pueblo y no en el poder político y antidemocrático del capital; buscamos promover la prosperidad de la patria, en armonía con la naturaleza y cuidando los recursos de los que depende la vida en el planeta; Y porque estamos convencidos de que un mundo mejor es posible.
Over 60 years, in the face of aggressions and threats, Cubans have shown the iron will to resist and overcome the most difficult circumstances. Despite its immense power, imperialism does not possess the capacity to break the dignity of a united people, proud of its history and of the freedom conquered by so much sacrifice. Cuba has already shown that, yes, it was possible, yes it is possible, and it will always be possible to resist, fight, and achieve victory. There is no other alternative.

Durante más de 60 años, ante las agresiones y amenazas, los cubanos han demostrado la voluntad férrea de resistir y superar las circunstancias más difíciles. A pesar de su inmenso poder, el imperialismo no posee la capacidad de romper la dignidad de un pueblo unido, orgulloso de su historia y de la libertad conquistada por tanto sacrificio. Cuba ya ha demostrado que, sí, fue posible, sí, es posible, y siempre será posible resistir, luchar y lograr la victoria. No hay otra alternativa.
