HAVANA TIMES – As gatherings take place nationwide to pay homage to Fidel Castro, in all neighborhoods points have been established where the population can sign their adhesion to his ideas on Revolution, reported dpa news
In the year 2000, during the May 1st International Workers Day celebration, the then Cuban president, Fidel Castro, expressed his concept of Revolution.
Here is the text which has been ever present on billboards and posters since that date.
Is the sense of the historic moment;
is to change all which must be changed
is complete equality and liberty
is to be treated and to treat others as human beings
is to emancipate ourselves by ourselves and with our own efforts
is to challenge dominant powerful forces within the social and national scope and realm;
is to defend values in which we believe at the price of any sacrifice;
is modesty, unselfishness, altruism, solidarity and heroism;
is to fight with audacity, intelligence and realism;
is to never lie nor violate ethical principles;
is the profound conviction that exists no force in the world capable of confounding truth and ideas
is unity, is independence, is to fight for our dreams of justice for Cuba and for the world
which is the base of our patriotism, our socialism and our internationalism.
Consulted by Havana Times, there are many people who agree with the concept while some question why it has not been applied in all these years?
