59 Years of Revolution! 59 Years of Independence, Justice and Human Dignity!

Today - January 1st, 2018 -  marks the 59th anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. The Canadian Network on Cuba, on behalf of the Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity movement, sends to to the people of Cuba, the Cuban government and Cuba’s revolutionary leadership our warmest greetings on this occasion.   

On January 1st, 1959, the people of Cuba led by Fidel Castro, seized their destiny in their own hands, embarking on the path self-determination, authentic freedom and human dignity. In defending what they have created through their revolution, the Cuba people have faced and defeated every imperialist obstacle and attack.  As Cuban President Raúl Castro Ruz declared in his December 21, 2017 speech to Cuba’s legislature, Cuba is and will remain, free, sovereign and independent. 

As the Cuban people confidently continue on this path, the Canada-Cuba solidarity and friendship movement will continue to strengthen the ties between the peoples of Canada and Cuba, demanding an end to the U.S. economic blockade of Cuba and the campaign of subversion, and calling for the return to Cuba of the illegally occupied territory of the U.S. naval base at Guantánamo Bay.

¡Viva la Revolución Cubana!

On behalf of the Canadian Network on Cuba
