Message from the KKE on the 60 years of the Cuban Revolution
The KKE sends you its warm comradely greetings on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the victory of the Cuban Revolution January 1st 1959.
The Cuban revolution, the first socialist revolution of the American continent, just a breath away from the powerful imperialist power, the USA, constituted one of the most significant events that marked the 20th century.
It confirmed the vitality of Marxism-Leninism and proletarian internationalism. It added personalities such as Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Camilo Cienfuegos, Vilma Espin, Frank Pais and others to the pantheon of the militants of the working class and revolutionary movement. It inspired the struggle of the oppressed and exploited around the world, it answered back to fatalism, to compromise with the capitalist world order.
It created a new type of state, a state of workers and farmers that not only managed to ward off the counter-revolutionary attempts but also laid the foundations for the satisfaction of people's needs, for social rights that could not and cannot even be imagined by the deprived and despised of your continent. It supported the national liberation movements of the peoples selflessly and with sacrifices.
At a time marked by the scars of counter-revolution and the overthrow of socialism in the USSR and other countries where the Communist and revolutionary movement continues to face serious difficulties, under strong pressure from the bourgeois class and opportunism, the Cuban Revolution is one of the milestones that can and must be utilized to defend the history and the contribution of the Communist movement, to strengthen proletarian internationalism, the struggle for socialism.
With comradely greetings
