Cuban University Students Highlight Fidel Castro’s Humanist Legacy

Havana, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) The humanist legacy of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, has repercussions on the island, Latin America and worldwide, students at the University of Havana said Thursday.

Raul Escalona, a third-year journalism student, told Prensa Latina that young Cubans must appropriate their legacy to keep the social struggle flag raised by Fidel Castro (1926-2016).

November 25 is the two-year anniversary of the leader’s physical death, who pushed for transformations in the health, labor and human rights areas, aimed at the well-being of the country’s entire population, achievements disseminated throughout the world by internationalism.

This is a very appropriate date to address the root of the Commander in Chief’s thinking as a social fighter, as an internationalist leader, as a spokesman for the third world and for the most just struggles humanity has ever had, Escalona said.

‘For our youth’, he added, ‘it is important to continue Fidel Castro’s legacy because many of the social justice projects he initiated are not completely finished yet.

For her part, Dailene Dovale, also student of Journalism, but fifth year, said that university students and young people in general, should admire the Commander in Chief for his humanist ideology, and also for the creation of a workable strategy to build a better world.

Therefore, he was not a utopian idealist, he was a human being capable of thinking for himself, something very difficult to achieve, and from his purposes he helped to build a better place in Cuba and the world, she added.

This Saturday, the emblematic University of Havana stairway will host thousands of teenagers and young people to pay tribute to the revolutionary leader.
