Signed by Alan MacLeod, a journalist for the US MintPress News website, the focus addressed the events, noting that the Washington establishment immediately received the events, and put all its weight behind the protesters.

Reporting from Havana, the journalist revealed the funding of the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to members of the Cuban art sector.
He deplored the NED’s work as a promoter of alleged “political alternatives,” and noted that the agency “never disclosed who it works with inside Cuba, leaving Cubans to question whether Washington is secretly funding this policy.”
He noted that the State Department, the NED, and the US Agency for International Information financed these plans against Cuba.
