A year has passed since the death of Cuban Revolution's historic leader, Fidel Castro Ruz. A real communist and internationalist who, through his life and action, put his stamp indelibly in the history of Cuba and Latin America. Fidel was a man whose name became synonymous to Freedom, Revolution and Dignity, leaving a valuable legacy to the international communist movement and the people of Cuba.
Comandante Castro's political legacy continues to inspire the Cuban people in the consistent struggle against the genocidal economic, commercial and financial blockade that the U.S. governments have imposed, as well as against the multiform attempts by imperialist centers in the USA and the EU to undermine socialist construction in Cuba.
Today, a year since his biological death, Comandante Fidel Castro Ruz lives in the minds, the hearts and the collective memory of the people who fight against the barbaric exploitative system, against injustice and repression. His example will continue to be a source of inspiration for the workers-peoples' struggles of today and tomorrow, no matter how many years pass.
Ever onward to victory. Hasta la Victoria, Siempre!
