Letter from Fidel to Alexis Tsipras, Prime Minister of Greece

Hon. Mr. Alexis Tsipras

Prime Minister of Greece:

I warmly congratulate you for your brilliant political victory, details of which I followed closely through the channel TeleSur.

Greece is very familiar among Cubans. She taught us Philosophy, Art and Sciences of antiquity when we studied at school and, with them, the most complex of all human activities: the art and science of politics.

Your country, especially your courage in the current situation, arouses admiration among the Latin American and Caribbean peoples of this hemisphere on witnessing how Greece, against external aggression, defends its identity and culture. Nor do they forget that a year after Hitler’s attack on Poland, Mussolini ordered his troops to invade Greece, and that brave country repelled the attack and drove back the invaders, forcing the deployment of German armored units towards Greece, diverting them from the initial target.

Cuba knows of the bravery and the fighting capacity of the Russian troops, which, together with the forces of their powerful ally the People’s Republic of China, and other nations of the Middle East and Asia, always try to avoid war, but would never allow for any military aggression without an overwhelming and devastating response.

In the current political situation of the world, where peace and the survival of our species hangs by a thread, every decision, more than ever, must be carefully thought-out and applied, so that no one may doubt the honesty and seriousness with which many of the most responsible and serious leaders struggle today to confront the calamities that threaten the world.

We wish you, esteemed compañero Alexis Tsipras, the greatest of success.

    Most Honorable Fidel Castro,
    You never fail me or my ideals. You will always be my number one hero. I am in total agreement with your deep and powerful sentiments towards our great neighbor and teacher … the country of Greece.

  2. Janice Oxford / GREED

    People in Cuba need to be more aware of the truth regarding conditions in the United States. I am sharing some information that I believe is credible. This what Fidel did not want to happen in your beautiful country. So as we watch the suffering from economic collapse in Greece, I believe there will be a domino effect and I wonder what diplomatic relations will do to Cuba … I would trust Fidel Castro’s vision, personally.

    Thank you for your time.

    If more people knew the truth behind the protective arms with which Fidel embraced his people, public opinion would be much different. The truth was not only withheld, but propaganda supporting lies portraying him as a cruel dictator – spread through the US media and school systems.

    If I can shed light on the true facts and unveil the deceit – it is my pleasure and moral duty as a human being.

    RE :

    Of course in this video when there is a reference to “Broadland” … and the lower and middle classes were gaining more than the elite … we must remember the gains were coming from the imposed hardships and exploitation of other lesser developed countries.

    So the spoils of this greed are now trickling down into the country that once benefitted, as they were either uninformed – unaware, or just drew a blind eye and grabbed for more.
    It is really shameful. I can not understand why anyone would want to come here and be a part of this gross injustice that has been practiced in the name of democracy. It is a facade and most of the people in this country aren’t even aware or concerned of the suffering their gains, have caused.
