Paris, Nov 23.- The French association Cuba Linda highlighted the validity of the legacy of humanism and solidarity of the revolutionary leader Fidel Castro (1926-2016), whose ideas he considered the way to face the challenges of the international community.
A few days after the fourth anniversary of his death, the organization founded in 1998 pointed out that the island's internationalist response to the Covid-19 pandemic is a true reflection of the principles instilled by the statesman in the Cuban people.
In this 2020 of challenges for the world due to the serious pandemic, Fidel's vision takes effect daily, and his thought is ratified that only cooperation and solidarity can save humanity, said Rose-Marie Lou on behalf of the association, its political manager.
According to Lou, Cubans honor his commitment to continue the work of justice and dignity, carried out as a result of the physical departure of the leader, and they do so despite the aggressions of the United States and the slanders spread by the Western media.
That work was already immense, and it multiplies with the response to Covid-19, not only because of the control of the disease in the country, but also because of the solidarity with other peoples that we see with the sending of dozens of medical brigades to more than 40 countries and territories affected by the pandemic, he stressed.
With this, he added, Fidel's vision that Cuba would send doctors and not bombs is fulfilled.
Cuba Linda also highlighted the resistance of the Greater Antilles against the US blockade, as one more example of their attachment to Fidel Castro's legacy.
Washington tries by all means to drown an island that does not give up and clearly defends its positions, including support for the peoples who fight for their well-being, sovereignty and self-determination, denouncing imperialism and its dirty wars and its interference, he said.
" Today Fidel's homeland continues to stand as a beacon for the peoples of the world, building a sustainable, prosperous and supportive socialist society," Lou insisted. (Text and photo: PL)
