Fifty one years ago the biggest whorehouse and gambling casino in the Carribean closed its doors permanently. Fifty one years ago the United States was faced with the greatest challenge in its entire history…. a challenge that came from a mere ’90 miles from home’.

Cuba was free! Despite every possible attempt to turn the clocks backwards, Cuba remains free!!

Embargoes, blockades, attacks, invasions …. nothing worked!

Cuba has been the inspiration of the downtrodden nations throughout the world and continues to be.

Palestinians rejoice on this glorious day as one day their land will be free as well…..

On the 48th anniversary of the revolution

Dear Compatriots:

Please accept my warmest congratulations on the 48th anniversary of the triumph of the Revolution.

We have concluded a year of tireless efforts and very encouraging results in the Battle of Ideas that we are all waging and the programs associated with the ongoing Energy Revolution and our nation’s economic and social development. We hosted the Summit of the Non-Aligned Movement and we carry on with our determination to confront and overcome the U.S. blockade and constant aggressions. Nothing has been able to make us abandon our path.

I wish to acknowledge the serenity and maturity with which our people have acted and the good work done by our glorious Communist Party, the Revolutionary Government, our youth and grassroots organizations, the members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR) and the Interior Ministry (MININT) and our National Assembly of People’s Power.

I truly appreciate your affection and support. Regarding my recovery, I always said it would be a long-term process, but certainly we are not losing this battle. I collaborate as a good and disciplined patient with the devoted team of doctors that is treating me.

I keep up to date with the main news and everything that is going on in the world today. I exchange with my closest collaborators whenever it is necessary, regarding issues of great importance.

Humanity is going through very difficult times, with wars and threats emerging everywhere and the unrestricted consumerism that is typical of the globalized imperialist system, which leads to the exhausting of major natural resources and the polluting of the environment. That, alone, justifies our heroic struggle.

Every success we achieve demands from us greater efforts to preserve it and further develop it. We need our people’s full cooperation and discipline.

It is my most ardent desire that the year 2007 constitute a dawning of hope for our entire people.

Long live our Revolution on its 48th anniversary!

Fidel Castro Ruz

    Fidel is one of a kind. In spite of the propaganda we’ve all been subjected to, I say without restraint that the world would be a worse place. were he not an actor on the stage of great events.
    One day I hope to hear his own version of the missile crisis, with hopes that the ridiculous attempts on his life by the degenerates in Washington have been forgiven, if not forgotten. That true story would be a great book.
    Indeed, one of my humble daydreams is to visit your great country and just perhaps meet the great man.
    I assure you that I am the farthest thing from a hero worshipper imaginable.

    Cuba is a country to be admired, Fidel is a man to be respected, successfully defying the ugly US and its tactics, efforting to keep Cuba down.

    Cuba is far from perfect, it has many problems but what country doesn’t?…

    The US is always screaming about ‘human rights this’ and ‘democracy that’, if it weren’t so tragic it would be funny! (Beware of Western Nations threatening Democracy because a massive bombing, invasion and occupation are sure to follow…)

    We live in one of the most corrupt and repressive country’s in the world (USA) with an incarceration system which is the second largest employer in the US. (How many political prisoners are in the US? Plenty.)

    Even at his age Fidel intellectually out matches most of our ‘elected’ officials, especially in the Presidential category…

    Viva Fidel!

    I have a dream that one day the poor people of the USA and the world will rise up, take back our countries and run the mafia, the crooks and the criminals out. Just like the brave people of Cuba did when they won their freedom.

    Castro is a good man, A modern day Robbin Hood. He took the country from the rich and gave it to the poor and that is why the big money boys hate him. Notice how the media try to demonize any world leader (Hugo Chavez, Etc.) that try to help the poor and make them look like some kinda monster.

    The bible say’s ‘the meek shall inherit the earth.’

    Viva la revolution.

    USA and the Western press spreads a lot of lies about incredible economic troubles in Cuba, funny thing is that the so called middle class in the West is facing the same problem!

    There is an old quote “In socialism people have money but nothing to buy, in capitalism people have lots to buy but not enough money”.
