Cuba: Ministry of Foreign Affairs denounces attacks on Brazilian leaders

The outrageous manipulation of the Petrobras corruption case is aimed at discrediting and criminalizing Lula da Silva, an emblematic leader of Our America,  defaming one of the region’s most combative political organizations, overthrowing the legitimate government led by President Dilma Rousseff and putting and end to progressive processes across the region

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs rejects the attack against the Constitution and democracy in Brazil, which has turned former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, historic leader of the Worker’s Party of Brazil, and the government led by President Dilma Rousseff, into targets of legal and parliamentary attacks, which are unjustifiable and disproportionate.

The outrageous manipulation of the Petrobras corruption case is aimed at discrediting and criminalizing Lula da Silva, an emblematic leader of Our America, defaming one of the region’s most combative political organizations, overthrowing the legitimate government led by President Dilma Rousseff and putting and end to progressive processes across the region.

The coercive detention of Lula and attempted parliamentary coup against Dilma have been widely condemned throughout the country

The coercive detention of Lula and attempted parliamentary coup against Dilma have been widely condemned throughout the country, from the government and its allies, to mass organizations, trade unions and social movements, which have taken to the streets in protest across various cities throughout Brazil. Meanwhile, the condemnation of these acts increases across numerous Latin American countries.

Imposing force where they have been unable to win in elections

With these underhand tactics, sectors of the police, legislative and judicial systems in certain states in our region, in close alliance with transnational media groups, oligarchs and imperialists, are attempting to impose by force what they have been unable to win in elections.

Compañeros Lula and Dilma Rousseff have shown admirable courage and determination in the face of these attacks. The government of the Republic of Cuba has no doubt that the truth will come out and the hardworking people of Brazil will close ranks in their defense, as well as to safeguard the political and social advances achieved by the Worker’s Party governments.
