July 26, commitment to continue fighting

Editorial: People from Cuba, Jaruqueños, arrived today at the 64th anniversary of a historic and heroic deed, a fact that awakened a country and set it to fight, with an unequaled determination, against one of the bloodiest dictatorships that are remembered in America , that of Fulgencio Batista.

 

 

Today July 26, 2017 is a special day for another great reason; it is the first time that our undefeated leader, the great Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, who is dead on November 25, is not physically present to us. It is another reason to keep doing things right.

 

And as our First Secretary of the Communist Party, General of the Army Raul Castro convened in his closing speech of the Ninth Ordinary Session of the VIII Legislature of the National Assembly of People's Power, in the absence of Fidel "... let us propose to face the new challenges under the guidance of his example, revolutionary intransigence and permanent faith in victory "

 

There are many challenges ahead of us today, in the face of the imperialist threat led by President Donald Trump, which seeks to undermine the progress made by the two countries, and tries to frighten us as they have unsuccessfully attempted others before him. Cuba does not fear, we will remain here making Revolution long after Trump is history.

 

Measures to intensify the blockade will fail and any strategy that seeks to destroy the Revolution will fail, for a single reason, the unshakable unity of this people, who long ago chose to be free and sovereign.

 

On July 26, 1953, Fidel Castro did not let the apostle die in the year of his centenary. There were 152 young men who, under his leadership, gave continuity to the ideas of Marti and to all those who had fallen for independence.

 

The assault on the barracks Guillermón Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes in 1953 marked the beginning of the end not only of the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista; it also marked the awakening of the peoples of America for whom Cuba is always an example to follow.

 

Today, faced with the new challenges, a phrase from our colleague Raúl is required, to work without respite from the County City of Jaruco, the people and the Bolivarian Revolution of Venezuela, our unconditional support, as well as former President Luis Ignacio Lula da Silva, victims of Imperial maneuvers and dirty wars, know that we do not forget them and that we are with you.

 

Today July 26, 64 years of the heroic deed of the Moncada, the people of Cuba have reasons to celebrate from Pinar to Santiago, what we have achieved so far is nothing more than a commitment to continue fighting, so that it is always 26 of Peace and Freedom.


Glory to the fallen in the actions of July 26, 1953!


Eternal glory to the men and women who have fallen in the defense of the Fatherland!


Socialism or death! Country or Death!
