The valiant people of Camagüey will never betray Fidel

Yesterday afternoon, December 1, the funeral procession bearing the remains of Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz reached the province of Camagüey, crossing the fertile plains of this region to receive a moving salute from the population along the Central Highway, and during an evening vigil in the capital city’s Ignacio Agramonte Plaza de la Revolución.

The cedar urn bearing the remains of the Comandante was placed, under an honor guard, inside the Plaza’s memorial.

Radio Cadena Agramonte reported that attending the vigil, along thousands of residents, were Jorge Luis Tapia Fonseca, first party secretary in Camagüey and Isabel González Cárdenas, president of the Provincial Assembly of People’s Power.

¡FIDEL! 

The death of Fidel Castro Ruz on Nov. 25 shook the world. The great revolutionary leader not only guided, but assisted the world’s poorest peoples and those fighting for national liberation and socialism, whether in Cuba, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, elsewhere in Latin America and the Caribbean or here in the United States.

Fidel was the “Maximum Leader” of the Cuban Revolution, acknowledged as such by all who fought to topple the brutal Fulgencio Batista dictatorship and liberate Cuba from U.S. domination and imperialist exploitation. He was the leader of first a student movement, then a guerrilla band and finally an army of revolutionaries. These fighters all had tremendous abilities. Among them were Celia Sanchez, Vilma Espin, Juan Almeida, Che Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos, Frank Pais, Raul Castro and many others.

Fidel was the leader among all these heroic leaders, as well as in the eyes of millions of oppressed and downtrodden Cubans, struggling in the cities and starving in the countryside. He carried out their will. The population was ready for revolution, and Fidel and his collaborators won the people’s confidence with their tremendous courage, integrity and resolve.

Much of this issue of Workers World is devoted to honoring Fidel’s revolutionary life and legacy. In these pages, writers contribute their recollections, tell what Fidel and socialist Cuba have meant to them and to the world, and take a glimpse at Cuba today.

The people of Burkina Faso are having a revolution!! 

Young, old, men and women, the people have had enough.  Please take a look at photo 1, citizens have taken over the national news station, photo 2, citizens have taken over parliament and the last photo, parliament building has been set ablaze. 

why?  because the protesters are angry at plans to allow Burkina Faso’s President Blaise who wanted to extend his  27-year term by another 5 years!

This is one of the most important events in sub-Saharan Africa, please take note that this generation of Africans are not sleeping. 

In the words of Thomas Sankara “While revolutionaries as individuals can be murdered, you cannot kill ideas

Africa will rise again.

“Ignorance of each other is what has made unity impossible in the past. Therefore we need enlightenment… We need more light about each other. Light creates understanding, understanding creates love, love creates patience, and patience creates unity. Once we have more knowledge about each other, we will stop condemning each other and a United front will be brought about…”- Malcolm X (May 9, 1925 – February 21,1965)
