Havana, Nov 25 (Prensa Latina) Cuba pays tribute to the historic leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro (1926-2016), with multiple tributes throughout the country dedicated to evoke his legacy, on the seventh anniversary of his physical disappearance.
The day before, cultural institutions also joined the tributes to the historic leader with the panel “Hart’s Vision of Fidel”, convened by the “Oficina del Programa Martiano” of the island.
The dialogue was led by prestigious intellectuals such as the director of Casa de las Americas, Abel Prieto; the director of the Oficina del Programa Martiano, Eduardo Torres Cuevas, and writers and researchers Pedro Pablo Rodriguez and Eloisa Carrera, widow of Armando Hart.
Fidel Castro led one of the most influential insurgent movements in Latin America in the 1950s and, with his triumph, commanded one of the most influential leftist governments in the region.
His role in consolidating the revolutionary process; the economic and social transformations of the country; the development of education, health, sports, culture and science; the confrontation of U.S. aggressions and the call for unity in the region made him a universal symbol of resistance.
