The historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, always present in the minds of his compatriots, today seems to be even more so given the difficulties and challenges facing the country, on commemorating the sixth anniversary of his death.
The memory of the Commander in Chief is appreciated in the thousands of messages on social networks where from the main leaders of the country to workers and students, older adults and young people express with heartfelt words the weight of his physical absence and the presence of his work and ideals.
On an official visit to China, President Miguel Díaz-Canel expressed on his Twitter account that “no matter how far we are from Cuba, we always feel the Commander in Chief very much alive. His revolutionary legacy is already a World Heritage Site. His ideas are not only alive. Every day they acquire greater value and topicality. It will be so.”
Meanwhile, the president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, Esteban Lazo, assured that his legacy and example “remain valid among the Cuban people, determined to be consistent with the concept of Revolution as a guide for the present and future of the homeland.” .
He added that “Fidel lives in the daily dedication to our country of every Cuban.”
The many tributes to remember who is considered one of the most relevant political figures on the planet in the 20th century and in the first decades of the present, will culminate tonight in Havana with an artistic evening convened by youth organizations on the historic steps of the University of Havana.
