The repression against the aboriginal people of Salta, carried out by the brutal and criminal military of Argentina, with orders to beat, abuse, banish and jail hundreds of indigenous individuals, including old people, women and children, is a reprehensible and deplorable act on the part of the pseudo-republic of Argentina. We vehemently condemn this act of barbarism, which astounds all free men and women of the land and is a throwback to the time of the Spanish invasion and colonization of this continent. The abuses committed against a defenseless racial minority in this Nazi-style pogrom is not only a crime against Argentina but also a crime against Humanity. We Cuban anarchists, opposed as always to abuses and misery of the repressive authorities of all States, raise our voice in protest against these atrocities and solidarize ourselves with the indigenous people of Salta.

The people of Argentina have already suffered enough under past dictatorships and have had their fill of State terrorism,particularly that directed against the indigenous populations of the continent. With this communique, we announce our formal and most serious protest against the beatings, physical and verbal, committed by the Argentine military.
