Message of the Ambassador of Cuba in Jamaica, H.E. Inés Fors Fernández, on the occasion of the 93rd birthday of Fidel Castro
In our country, when the anniversary of the birth of a national hero arrives, we usually commemorate it in a very solemn ceremony. However, when it comes to Fidel, we speak about “celebrating his birthday”. Well, when he was physically with us, every August 13th was a date of genuine joy for most Cubans and our friends around the world. And even though neither him nor the Cuban government ever encouraged the celebration of the date, we always managed to have some kind of party that day.
With the arise in 2015 of the Continental Day for Democracy and against Neoliberalism, from the social and popular movement and regional organizations networks, we promote this articulation with ecumenism and plurality, taking as fundamental objectives of consensus the defense of democracy, sovereignty and peoples integration, as well as the fight against free trade and the development of transnationals in the region.
