This bibliography presents a collection of references which show the social, political, ideological,and cultural struggle being waged in response to the subversive campaign of the so-called independent libraries and their librarians in name only, mercenaries on the salary of the U.S. empire; individuals who,knowingly or unknowingly, try to put Cuba on the verge of a possible armed intervention by the U.S.; individuals who have dishonored the real work which the real Cuban librarian community laboriously carries with revolutionary commitment. As is already public knowledge, the so called independent librarians, together with those who call themselves independent journalists, independent economists," independent unions, independent teachers, etc., are one of the United States governments operative methods to subvert the Cuban Revolution. One of the goals of the campaign inherent in those libraries has been, and is, to transmit a distorted image around the world of the reality of the Cuban state's public policies regarding reading, publishing and the diverse types of libraries that help everybody. The independent concept is rooted in the Helms-Burton law, signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. It is the legal outline of encouraging and legitimizing forms of subversive action in Cuba through independent groups. (Bibliography translated by Dana Lubow, L.A.
