Long Live the Cuban Revolution!

- Isaac Saney*, Canadian Network on Cuba, January 2, 2012 -


On the 53rd anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, the Canadian Network on Cuba, on behalf of the Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity movement, extends our warmest and most heartfelt greetings and congratulations to the Cuban people. In the 53 years that have flashed by since that glorious day of January 1st, 1959, the Cuban people have shown what is possible to achieve when one defends genuine independence and self-determination. As Cuba continues on the path of social justice, human dignity and international solidarity, the Cuban Revolution continues to be an inspiration to humanity. The example of Cuba assumes even greater significance as the second decade of the 21st century unfolds, fraught with grave dangers that threaten the well-being of the peoples of the world. In the midst of these profound challenges, Cuba refutes those who argue that relations among the world's nations and peoples are -- and can only be -- determined by self-interest, the pursuit of power and wealth. Cuba demonstrates that it is possible to build relations based on genuine solidarity and social love; it is a living example of the alternatives that permit people to realize their deepest aspirations, and that another better world is possible.

As the Cuban people confidently march forward, the CNC reaffirms its commitment to strengthen and deepen the ties of friendship and solidarity between Canada and Cuba and resolves to do the utmost to obtain justice for the Five Cuban Heroes; who so valiantly defended their country from terrorist attacks launched from the United States. In the spirits of solidarity and friendship, we join the global chorus, declaring:

¡Viva la Revolución Cubana!
