    Background: A new campaign to overthrow the Cuban Prime Minister, Fidel Castro, and his Government....leaders of two Cuban revolutionary groups, both opposed to Dr. Castro, met in a New York total on March 22nd and a announced that their two parties had now agreed on a joint programme for the "Liberation" of Cuba from "International communism".

    Dr. De Varona, a former Cuban Prime Minister, said men and supplies were being "infiltrated" each day into Cuba to help the anti-Castro rebels already operating there. He said the revolutionary groups had sufficient forces to "overthrow Castro this year".

    Dr. Cardona, another of the revolutionary leaders, and also a former Cuban Prime Minister, said a Provisional Government would be set up as soon as part of the island had been won with Cuban arms. He said the revolutionary group had received no moral or financial support from the United States Government.
