“I broke the silence to tell you that thanks to the information published in Prensa Latina, I learned of the release of the script ‘Operation Condor against Cuba’, which was presented on Friday about that heroic island, an act that makes me very happy,” he said.
“In the 21st century, the Condor continues to fly in the region, and it is imperative that it clip its wings by recognizing your valuable intellectual contribution,” adds a letter from the alternative Nobel laureate sent to the author with a copy to this media.
“As for my existence, having retired from UNESCO in Paris, I have dedicated myself to the creation and operation of the ‘Museum of Memories: Dictatorship and Human Rights’ and writing my testimony so that the Condor would not be effective again,” he expands. ..
For his part, Mendes thanked “Dear Teacher” Almada “for your motivating words” and wished him good health “to continue the work you have started,” in an email also sent to Prensa Latina.
The Cuban researcher’s work, resulting from more than 10 years of searching for reliable sources, analyzes the impact of terrorist acts against individuals and interests of the Caribbean nation in Latin America.
The volume written by the jurist and professor Mendez, presented at the Fidel Castro Center in this capital, shows the scheme of the secret war of the United States against this nation, which later spread to countries in the Southern Cone.
Research through investigative journalism has led to the text revealing the relationships between Washington-sponsored terrorists and the dictatorships on the continent with whom they came in contact, served, and advised.
Mendez reconstructs a historical fact in his book that includes victims such as dozens of Argentines working for the Cuban embassy in that country, who were kidnapped and disappeared during the last military dictatorship.
The author admitted that the inspiring purpose of it was to record in people’s memory the impact of transnational crime against honorable citizens of different countries, who opposed fascism and were carried out for it.
Mendez, who also conveyed in his book his interest in discovering the bodies of those who disappeared due to the Condor plan, specified in statements to Prensa Latina that the search and discovery of journalist Jorge Ricardo Masetti is pending.
“This book will be indispensable when it comes to gathering information necessary for what will one day be humanity’s greatest trial against the criminal empire,” Argentine scholar Stella Calloni wrote in the preface.
Martín Almada (1937) was the 1992 search and location lead for the archive of the Condor Plan, designed by the United States in the Paraguayan city of Lampar, with the assistance of Judge Jose Augustin Fernández.
The so-called “terror files” contain about 700,000 documents on the project of dictatorships against the left in the region, including communications from the police, military authorities and civilian informants.
The evidence, which shook the planet when it was revealed, condemns the atrocities inflicted on peoples by military dictatorships such as Paraguay, Argentina, Brazil, Chile and Uruguay, which ruled between 1970 and 1980.
The lawyer and educator’s contributions to the “Archives of Terror” are part of the UNESCO Memory of the World collection, “in view of their exceptional legal and historical value”.
The alternative Nobel Prize, awarded to Almada in 2002, was awarded by the Right to Live Foundation and established in 1980, after Nobel promoters rejected the distinction between human rights and the environment.
