Cuba Ratifies One Thing: “No One Surrenders Here!”
By Yamylé Fernández Rodríguez /Radio Cadena Agramonte
Visibly moved the veterans of the Cuban liberation struggles, family members of the Cuban Five imprisoned in US jails and delegates to the 6th Congress of Cuba's Communist Party enjoyed the military review and mass parade at the Jose Marti Revolution Square in Havana.
The replica of the Granma cabin cruiser sailed on a sea of blue and red neckerchiefs, as to say that the new generation will not disappoint those who gave everything so that our children can grow healthy and happy.
Like industrious bees, members of children's theater company, La Colmenita, also flooded the emblematic square, where they displayed in their art one of the most beautiful gains of the Revolution led by Fidel: which is the full realization of the Cuban childhood.
The young people also marched on Saturday morning with a firm and determined step, convinced that the only one footpath to be followed is the path to Socialism, proclaimed half a century ago by Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro.
Workers, soldiers, intellectuals, teachers, scientists, students and other sectors of the Cuban society wrote a glorious page of patriotism in Havana’s historic square, a place that has been witness of other great events.
What a splendid reaffirmation today! The blood that has been shed in the liberation struggles since 1868 until 20th century hasn’t been in vain!
For many reasons the people of Cuba organized in militias and in other revolutionary organizations faced the invaders in Playa Girón (Bay of Pigs).
In such an early moment, only two years after the triumph of the Revolution, the conviction that no one would surrender was deeply rooted in the people.
Thanks to such a resolution, the children of Cuba are free and the children can reach their most longed aspirations.
Those who think that can corrupt our youth and boycott the Revolutionary work are completely wrong.
Maydel Gómez Lago, head of the Federation of University Students (FEU), reminded so to the pawns of the US empire: “This youth will never flub this process!”
The feeling of attachment to our native land are not on sale. That’s something they should know.
Nobody surrenders here, and this message was sent today at Havana’s historic Jose Marti Revolution Square.
