Cuban Communist party urges supporters to oppose Church


Cuba's Communist Party has issued a statement in which it calls upon its members and supporters to work against the influence which the Catholic Church may have on the people of the country.

According to a press report, the Archbishop of Havana, Cardinal Jaime Ortega y Alamino, has protested against the document, calling it "anti-religious".

Analysts have observed that Church- State relations in Cuba are tense and difficult at present, which is also indicated by the fact that three state-controlled radio stations this year refused to broadcast any religious programs over Easter.
