Believe me that I have neither read, nor do I care to read the article written by the notorious spy and mercenary in the service of the Castros, the Guatemalan Percy Alvarado who, in the most ruthless and most of all cowardly way, attacks the former political prisoner Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, one of the most emblematic and important leaders of the Cuban resistance.
And I emphasize what a coward he is, because there is nothing brave in a man attacking a man or people, without giving them the opportunity to defend or explain their views. And back to that famous phrase: “I do not care they speak ill of me, the question is who and why.”
This Percy Alvarado has been against the Eastern Democratic Alliance and against the Central Opposition Coalition. Now I understand, rather, I am more convinced than ever, of the terror tyranny has for the valuable work of consensus and coordination of regional coalitions. Now I realize that it is not only Mr. Alvarado, but there in the East and not far away is José Daniel there in one more individual in the service of the regime, which is determined not only to destroy the Eastern Democratic Alliance and the Patriotic Union of Cuba, but also to confront them through public battles between these two main elements of the struggle in that eastern region and I mean these two unparalleled Titans: Rolando Rodriguez Lobaina and Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia, whose unity and consensus is what the regime fears.
Fortunately, more than a few of us are aware of that dirty strategy, which we know is cooked up in the laboratories of the political police of Villa Marista and its counterpart department in Santiago de Cuba. But both Mr. Percy Alvarado and his partner in Santiago de Cuba have had their answer. The cacerolazo — the banging on pots and pans protest — this January 24, 2012 and the perseverance and commitment to the victims of these attacks, for which the fight is already more than enough.
These maneuvers of entertainment, seeking to deviate from what we do and our way, are as we say in street slang, por gustavo (a street way of saying that something is done in vain), for pleasure. And the more they attack us the stronger we grow, the more people like and know about us. They are wasting time.
Ever onward Brother Joseph Daniel, your moral and patriotic stature grows by the day. And those attacks by Percy Alvarado and his followers make your brothers admire and like you more.
