The legacy of the humanist, anti-imperialist and anti-neoliberal ideas of Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz, will be present today, and tomorrow November 26, during the International Online Youth Forum “Banner Ideas.”
Commemorating the fourth anniversary of the leader of the Cuban Revolution’s departure to eternity, focused on the maxim: “Unity for solidarity, anti-imperialism and anti-neoliberalism: Action for necessary transformation in times of COVID,” the event is sponsored by the Young Communists League (UJC) and Cuban student and social organizations.
The inclusion of Fincimex on the U.S. State Department’s list of restricted Cuban entities last June, as well as the Treasury Department’s modifications to regulations for the control of Cuban assets announced on Friday, October 23, will prevent remittances to Cuba through U.S. companies with general licenses, directly harming the Cuban people and their relatives in the United States.
This move, amidst a brutal pandemic, corroborates the U.S. government’s cynicism, opportunism and contempt for the Cuban people.

Dear Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Central Committee
Compañero Esteban Lazo Hernández, President of the National Assembly of People's Power and the Council of State
Camilo Cienfuegos was stolen from us forever, October 28, 1959, but he left us the hero and the memories, already etched in the essence of the Revolution, the one to whom we can say today: Cuba is doing well, Camilo!
There is a man of the people that the homeland will never let die, because he left an eternal footprint everywhere he went. A man who lives on in his example.
He won the affection of a nation with his personal sacrifice, simplicity, his smile, and impeccable character forged in the Sierra and during a few months of Revolution following the victory.
