On the second death anniversary of Revolutionary Leader Fidel Castro, the world remembers him and his legacy.

Nov 25 (teleSUR) Sunday marks the two year death anniversary of Fidel Castro Ruz, one of the world’s most renowned revolutionary leaders. He led the guerilla movement alongside his brother Raul Castro and Che Guevara that overthrew the authoritarian regime of Batista in Cuba.

His ideas and politics have impacted the world and continue to do so even after his death. On his death anniversary, the world remembers Fidel Castro and his impact on world politics.

President Evo Morales of Bolivia tweeted: “Today (two years ago) in 2016, Brother Fidel Castro passed into eternity. But Fidel will never leave us completely because he is reborn every day in his work: in the inalienable freedom of the Cuban people and in the legacy of dignity and solidarity that he left to the whole world. #FidelEternal”

Como hoy, 2016, el hermano Fidel Castro pasó a la eternidad. Pero Fidel nunca nos dejará del todo, porque renace día a día en su obra: en la irrenunciable libertad del pueblo cubano y en el legado de dignidad y solidaridad que dejó al mundo entero.

Talking about the effect Fidel has on the world, Morales wrote, “Fidel taught us that the revolution is not made only with weapons, but that the real revolution is the unity of the people. We will continue your anti-imperialist legacy, history has already absolved you, companion, and you live in the hearts of those who fight for the freedom and dignity of peoples.”
