Fidel Castro, an Inspiration to Revolutionary Movements Worldwide

We might ask why the US hated Fidel Castro so much, given Cuba is a little island, made poor by years of blockade. The truth is that Castro’s Cuba provided inspiration for revolutionaries across the world, both in its defiance in the face of attacks and the US inspired blockade and for its achievements in providing its citizens with excellent welfare and social equality.

Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez brought together South American and Caribbean countries in ALBA, an intergovernmental organisation designed to set socialist principles and mutual economic support against the neoliberalism of the USA and West. Cuba has spread both its message and practical aid to developing countries across the world.

In his later years Castro played a significant role in peace negotiations, most notably in Colombia between the government and the rebel FARC organisation, but also in trying to bring about a better relationship between Cuba and the US.

He passed the baton to us all this year at a Congress of the Cuban Communist Party:

‘I am nearing 90. I will soon pass away like everyone else. The time will come for all of us, but the ideas of Cuban communists are an evidence that, in case if we work with pathos and dignity, we can produce material and cultural values people need.’

If Cuba proves that socialism doesn’t work, does Haiti prove that capitalism doesn’t work? (And remember, Cuba is under a 60-yr US blockade while Haiti gets billions in US aid.)
