President of Cuba speaks about freedom and the Homeland

Havana, Feb. 18.- Cuban President Miguel Díaz- Canel evoked today the song Little Daytime Serenade, by troubadour Silvio Rodríguez, as a reminder of the concepts of Homeland and freedom bequeathed by the leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro.

From the social network Twitter, Díaz- Canel assured that this is how the Homeland is sung and shared the fragment of the theme that ensures that I live in a free country, which can only be free, in this land, at this moment, and I am happy because I am a giant.

The statement occurs hours after the release of a video clip that, under the title Homeland and Life, tries to destabilize the internal order in the Caribbean nation, in the voices of Yotuel Romero, Descemer Bueno, El Obsorbo, El Funky, and Gente de Zona.

In this sense, the director of the National Library of Cuba, Omar Valiño highlighted the importance of the soundtrack composed by Rodríguez and pointed out - from the same network - that the Homeland needs sacrifices. It is altar and not a pedestal. 

Likewise, the island's Minister of Culture, Alpidio Alonso Grau, expressed his position regarding the recent strategy and pointed out that when there are many men without decorum, there are always others who have in themselves the decorum of many men. There's no giving up here! 

Similarly, the coordinator of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution, Gerardo Hernández highlighted the lack of novelty of a hoax like this: Do not be surprised at anything ... There are people for whom the homeland is the place where they are paid the most. They will always be willing to live from it, never to die for it.

The hashtags # CubaViva, # PatriaOMuerte and # AquiNoSeRindeNadie have been echoed on social networks in a firm commitment to the principles of the Revolution, as stated by the president of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry, Ramón Samada : the dilemma of ours always it will be homeland or death.

In exclusive statements to Prensa Latina, the intellectual of the Caribbean nation Abel Prieto, explained that the issue has an open political message and without nuances. It is an accumulation of slogans and a kind of balance, from the resentment, of 60 years of the Revolution, with insults typical of the worst anti-Cuban propaganda, he said. (Text and photo: PL)
