Fidel Castro Sends Message to University Students

HAVANA, Cuba, Jan 27 (acn) Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro sent the Cuban university students a message stressing the development of the country´s education over the past 56 years.

Fidel Message to StudentsFidel recalled that when he registered at the University of Havana, on September 4, 1945, the entity was the only higher education center that offered access to young people that could afford it, but that has changed since he said “we now have over fifty higher education centers throughout the country.”

In his message, the Commander-in-Chief said that if he had the opportunity to again go to university, he would take on a scientific course and he went to recall his years as a student and the influence he received from the Marxist-Leninist doctrine.

The message was read during a ceremony at the Aula Magna of the University, in which rector Gustavo Cobreiro granted the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters and heroes, Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando González and René González, a plaque marking the 280 anniversary of the University of Havana.

The ceremony was attended by Interior Minister Army Corps General Abelardo Colome, who is a member of the Political Bureau of Cuba´s Communist Party; Rolando Alfonso, department director of the Central Committee of the Party, and Armando Hart, also member of the Central Committee and director of the Office of the Marti Program, among other personalities.

56 Years of Heroic Struggle! 56 Years of Historic Victories! Print E-mail

 
-Isaac Saney, Co-Chair & Spokesperson, Canadian Network On Cuba, January 1st, 2015-

The Canadian Network On Cuba joins with the people of Cuba in celebrating the 56th anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. Cuba celebrates the triumph of revolution on the heels of a resounding revolutionary victory: the December 17, 2014 release of the final three of the Five Cuban Heroes and the announcement by U.S. President Obama that the United States government is taking steps toward the normalization of relations with Cuba. As much as the corporate media tries, these events cannot be divorced from the profound history in which they are embedded. The freedom of Gerardo Hernández, Ramón Labañino and Antonio Guerrero and Obama’s initiatives are the culmination of Cuba’s struggle for national affirmation, liberation, independence and social justice.

ICAP’s message to all fighters to free The Cuban Five Print E-mail

Dear friends of Cuba,

The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples joins the deep joy of all the Cuban people and the Solidarity Movement for the return of our heroes Gerardo, Ramón and Antonio.

Since yesterday, we have received thousands of messages and expressions of support, by different routes, addressed to the Five, their families, and the Cuban people. We share and celebrate with you this victory for justice, dignity and resistance for 16 long years.

Your contribution has been decisive and your commitment has been fulfilled. The Five are back with their families, with their people, in their homeland.

To all, our deepest appreciation and gratitude.

This great happiness should also contribute to keep us all united and mobilized. The unjust blockade against our people must cease. And there are numerous pending causes from peoples who demand the continuation of our joint efforts.

We firmly believe that you all will continue with us in the struggle for a better world.

Havana, December 18, 2014.

Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples
