Sandinismo nicaraguaThe first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee, Army General Raúl Castro, and President of the Republic Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, yesterday July 19, saluted the 41st anniversary of the Sandinista Popular Revolution’s victory in Nicaragua.

In a letter addressed to President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo, the two leaders congratulated the sister Central American country on behalf of the Cuban people and government, reiterating “our support, friendship and solidarity with you and the sister people of Nicaragua, who have defended the remarkable achievements made in recent years in the economic and social order, despite threats, sanctions and interference.”

“Be assured of our willingness to further advance in the multiple links that unite us,” the message concluded, on the occasion of the historic date that in 1979 marked the end of the Somoza family dictatorship in Nicaragua.

Likewise, the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, noted in a tweet that the triumph of the Sandinista Revolution was an inspiration for the people of Our America and the world.

The Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) has led the Nicaraguan people in a struggle to vastly improve access to education, health and social security, despite imperialist interference.

According to the current occupant of the White House, Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela constitute a so-called “triad of evil,” simply because we are defining our own destinies, following the path of independence with no imperial tutelage.
