Cubans in China condemn attacks on Cuban historical legacy

Beijing, Feb 22 (Prensa Latina) The ‘Ernesto Che Guevara’ Association of Cuban Residents in China on Sunday condemned all aggressions on Cuba´s historical legacy, dignity and principles, by speaking out for strengthening unity among compatriots.

The organization strongly rejected the unpatriotic, annexationist expressions and any unworthy attitude in the Patria y Vida (Homeland and Life) song, and stressed that the present moment facing foreign pressures on Cuba´s economy and the Covid-19 pandemic, it is definitely Patria o Muerte (Homeland or Death).

As specified in a statement, the unity of Cubans (home or abroad) is quite necessary now more than ever. It must be consistent with the process of the people and support it –as well as the Government- to overcome present colossal challenges and build a better future.

‘We have to defend and preserve our country, our sovereignty, our history, our identity and our culture. We are proud to have Fidel in our history. Tarnishing Fidel’s legacy is like disguising Cuba as something it is not. Cuba is and will always be Fidel’s Cuba,’ the association emphasized.

It highlighted Cuban medical brigade´s work and efforts to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, both domestically and internationally, as well as the development of four vaccine candidates to save lives amid the present health crisis.
