Cuban Author Highlights Values of the Socialist Revolution
Havana, Cuba, Jul 28.- The Cuban Revolution, like most social projects, is still an unfinished work that keeps its founding principles, said Cuban author Katiuska Blanco in the Dominican Republic.
In statements to local TV in the capital Santo Domingo, Blanco who wrote the book on Fidel Castro titled “Guerrilla of Time”, explained about the efforts of the Cuban people to achieve social benefits for all.
Speaking about her book, Blanco said that the two-volume work describe the spirit of sacrifice and the huge commitment of Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro to carry on, no matter the circumstances to face.
Fidel Castro not only was a guerrilla in the struggle against the Fulgencio Batista dictatorship (1952-1958), he still is a guerrilla with capacity to be ahead of developments that take place, said Blanco.
She said that Fidel’s vitality is based on his strong will, his discipline, tenaciousness, faithfulness and his defense of the noblest causes of human beings.
In the conversation, Blanco also referred Fidel’s participation in a 1947 failed expedition to fight the Rafael Trujillo dictatorship in the Dominican Republic.
She said that the experience of that expedition helped Fidel Catro to organize the attack on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedez garrisons on July 26, 1953.
That day, established as National Rebellion Day, marked the last stage of Cuba’s struggle for liberation, which ended with the triumph of the Revolution, January 1, 1959.
Guerrilla of Time was launched in three cities of the Dominican Republic and was first published in February 2012 at the International Book Fair in Cuba. (ACN).
