To my comrades of the University Students Federation

Fidel Castro

I do not trust the US policy, nor have I ever exchanged a single word with them, something that in no way means a rejection to a peaceful settlement of conflicts or war dangers. Defending peace is a duty of all. Any peaceful and negotiated solution to the problems between the United States and peoples, or any people of Latin America, which does not involve force or the use of force, should be addressed according to international standards and principles.

Food And Wholesome Jobs

The conditions have been created for the country to start the mass production of moringa oleifera and mulberry, which are inexhaustible sources of meat; milk and eggs; silk fibres that can be spun using traditional methods and also allow for the creation of jobs that can be performed in the shade and are appropriately remunerated, regardless of age or sex.

Nicolás Guillén

To your health, Guevara! Or better still, from the very depths of the Americas: Wait for us! We will depart with you. We want to die so as to live as you have died; and live as you live on.

Den Xiaoping

Den Xiaoping

He professed to be a wise man, and in fact he was. But he made a little mistake. “Cuba must be punished”, he said one day. Our country had never even pronounced his name. It was an absolutely unwarranted offence.

Alberto Juantorena

His prestige is gaining strength as an example of Cuba’s great sporting figures. His age and health portray him as the ideal prototype to preside over the Cuban Olympic Committee. Such predictions seem to be right!
