A popular celebration to reflect against the blockade and annexation is due to start Tuesday in Cuba with the attendance of social and political organizations and people in general.

The celebration, to be run until Friday, October 27, includes debates, forums, statements from union, student and grass-root entities, as well as extensive broadcasting on this issue in the press.

The Cuban government has slammed a document approved by US President George W. Bush s government, in which tells of new measures aimed at worsening the economic, trade and financial blockade applied on the island since the triumph of the Revolution.

It also states that the presence of a secret attached document, whose existence in that plan was officially recognized by the White House, includes a program to foster subversion in Cuba and spark off armed aggression against the Caribbean country.

One of those demands will be the declassification of that document, which is a threat to the peace and sovereignty of Cuba, many times victim of terrorist attacks and direct aggression.

According to reports by the island s government, the US blockade has so far provoked losses valued at $86 billion, in addition to violating current international accords.

Cuban staff working abroad will also participate in the celebration and debate on implications of new meddling announced by Bush.
