65th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution: Message of the KKE to the Communist Party of Cuba

On the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, the International Relations Section of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) sent the following message (here in Greek) to the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC):

"Dear comrades, on the occasion of the 65th anniversary of the victory of the Cuban Revolution, on 1 January 1959, the KKE extends a warm comradely greeting to the Communist Party and the people of Cuba.
The Cuban Revolution has proved that the peoples, through their struggle, have the power to overthrow capitalist barbarity. It has been a timeless source of inspiration for the struggle of the oppressed and exploited throughout the world, and enjoys the appreciation and solidarity of broad strata of the Greek people.

The first socialist revolution on the American continent was one of the major events that marked the 20th century. It confirmed the vitality of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism. It added personalities such as Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos, Raúl Castro, Vilma Espin, Frank País and many others to the pantheon of the militants of the working class and revolutionary movement.

Workers’ power has managed to victoriously repulse the attempts of counter-revolution and imperialist aggression and has laid the foundations for the meeting of popular needs, for social rights that the humble and despised on your continent are deprived of. Based on internationalism, it supported the liberation movements of other peoples with selflessness and sacrifice.

Dear comrades,

Today, when the Biden administration maintains and tightens the measures of the barbaric blockade against Cuba and escalates aggressive actions aimed at overthrowing the power and achievements of the Cuban people, it is imperative to strengthen internationalist solidarity with the Cuban Revolution and the Cuban people.

The KKE and KNE will continue condemning the criminal blockade of Cuba by the USA and any aggressive undermining action with all their might. They will further strengthen their practical internationalist solidarity towards Cuba."
