On Twitter, the Cuban president shared some Che´s important thoughts referring to the significance of youth, science and socialism.
‘The future of the country is directly linked to the development of science and technology. We can never walk with our own feet, as long as we do not have updated technology based on our own technique and on our own science,’ the head of state posted. Another of Che´s iconic phrases recalled by Díaz-Canel was: ‘Let’s be the nightmare of those who try to take our dreams away.’
Similarly, the Cuban president tweeted: ‘The fundamental clay of our work is youth: in it we place our hope and prepare it to take the flag from our hands.’
Plus, Díaz-Canel recalled the expression ‘We socialists are freer because we are fuller; we are fuller because we are freer (…) Our sacrifice is conscious; a fee to pay for the freedom we build,’ a message the Cuban leader attached with #CheVive hashtag.
Doctor Ernesto Che Guevara landed in Cuba together with the revolutionary leader Fidel Castro and 80 other expedition members on board of Granma yacht in 1956 to start fighting Fulgencio Batista´s dictatorship (1952-1959).
After the Triumph of Revolution in January 1, 1959, Ernesto Guevara served as president of the National Bank and also as Minister of Industry.
Guevara was one of the founders of the Latin American News Agency ¨Prensa Latina¨ at a time when Cuba really needed to protect itself from media hypes on newly-formed Revolution.
