LET CUBA LIVE: Saludos a Fidel

Saludos a Fidel

On the occasion of his 89th birthday, we offer our appreciation and

admiration, our thanks and fraternal love to Fidel.

Fidel is a teacher; like no one else he knows factual details and the truth,

and like a prophet he forecasts what the world can be.

Fidel exemplifies political leadership; as leader he has collaboratively

guided the processes of basic change.

Fidel is a part of history; he has never been alone, and is in fact joined

with personalities and processes of history. We think of José Martí and

Cuba’s struggle for independence and social justice.

Fidel is pragmatic and not wedded to dogma; like few other leaders, he

has the intelligence and judgment to base his ideas of action on real

needs, but also on changing needs and realities.

Fidel inspires. The idea of Latin American integration, which Fidel has

promoted for so many years, is about dignity and solidarity. Fidel’s

dreams gave birth to the battle of ideas, encouraging us to stand with the

world’s poor and oppressed people.

Fidel raised the banner of dignity of the Cuban people; the formidable

odds against his political projects, set mostly by the power of Cuba’s

grasping, imperial neighbor, served in no uncertain terms to validate the

ascendant quality of his leadership.

¡Viva Fidel!

¡Felicidades! —  From Let Cuba Live Committee of Maine, August 12, 2015, www.letcubalive.org
