Cuba dismantled another media circus orchestrated from the U.S. as part of the smear campaign against the revolution, this time starring citizen Martha Beatriz Roque.
Cuban television showed footage of an alleged hunger strike by Roque and other 19 people classed as Washington-paid workers, who were determined to draw the attention of the major media and build up lies against the island.
The braocasted material shows that during the political farce Roque received from his neighbor Humberto Gonzalez a continuous supply of food, such as fruits, vegetables and meat products.
The special television program reported that at the request of the strikers, doctors from a polyclinic went to assist them..
One of them, Dr. Anabel Cardenas explained that in spite of being diabetic and hypertensive, Roque, who pretended decay-could move with great vitality and there was no danger to her life.
At her home, Roque held talks with known international media and the Cuban American National Foundation based in U.S. territory, and was visited by the official of the Section of Interests of the United States in Havana (SINA) Maureen McGovern, as shown the report.
Previously, Roque had met with the head of the U.S. Interests Section, John Patrick Caufield as it was described in the footage.
The program denounced the support of the major media to the smear campaign against the Caribbean island, which at the same time, are silent on the case of the five Cubans imprisoned in the United States since 1998.
Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Rene Gonzalez and Gerardo Hernandez were sentenced to harsh sentences for reporting on violent plan actions by terrorist groups based in U.S. territory against Cuba.
