The voice of Juan Almeida Bosque rang out in Alegría de Pío: “No one here is surrendering…!”, he shouted to the enemy.

Creating culture for socialism

fidel y raul

During the month of April, this new year, the Eighth Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba will take place, where among other central questions to be analyzed is the functioning of the Party, its ties with the masses, ideological-political activity, and cadre policy, at a moment considered opportune for the updating of our strategy of resistance and development. Imagining this Congress in the light of the socio-political context of current Cuban society, brings to mind several very timely questions that I would like to submit to the consideration of readers in this article.

During this very tense, difficult year, in which we were obliged to confront COVID-19, as well as an unprecedented imperial offensive, Fidel has been at our side.

Maradona Fidel

No one carried the ball closer to his feet, as if by hand; no one was so transparent and, at the same time, so sensitive, on the field and off; no one ran, in barely ten seconds, almost 60 meters with the ball “tied” to his cleats, to let it fly for a goal that shook the world, in 1986.
