Letter of condolence for Cuban
The Executive Committee and the member
associations of the International Federation of Resistance Fighters
(FIR) Association of Antifascists have been deeply saddened
by the death of the long-standing President and Máximo Líder
of Cuba Fidel Castro.
The veterans of the antifascist struggle
have been following the development of the country and Fidel Castros
policy with great interest and solidarity since the Cuban Revolution.
In many cases, the FIR and its member associations have been engaged
against the American blockade policy and later for the release of
the Cuban Five.
Fidel Castro was for us in this debate
the representative of the legitimate Cuban, who defended the interests
of his own people, but also those of the peoples who fought for anticolonial
When he resigned from his position
for reasons of age, he remained for us the representative of the struggle
for a social, independent and truly democratic Cuba.
With his death lose the Cuban people
and the democratic world an important partner for peace, national
independence, democracy and social progress.
We will never forget him.
