Tribute in Italy to Fidel Castro after 7 years of his death

Rome, Nov 25 (Prensa Latina) The physical absence of Cuban leader Fidel Castro, seven years ago is very shocking, but "his ideas are still alive, present, valid and in force", says a message from the National Association of Italy-Cuba Friendship (Anaic).

“What is missing, is his figure, his way of speaking, his presence that inspired so many certainties, he who knew how to give answers to our many questions, to the many doubts that grip us,” the text published on the occasion of the seventh anniversary of the death of the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Revolution.

The document, entitled “Since seven years ago we have all been more orphans,” notes that Fidel’s death on November 25, 2016, left “a truly unfillable void,” but his example represents “a push, an extra gear to do and act, to improve the world around us, to follow him.”

“He always inspired in whoever knew and respected him a deep motivation to do and act, an unshakable belief in the things he did and achieved.”

“We miss Fidel,” the note states, for “How can we forget that clarity of his, that passionate way of speaking with which he set the hearts of the masses on fire?”, with that will of his, of steel, “driven by an inexhaustible passion, by an inflexible conviction.”

In today’s world “orphaned of a global vision and caged in a crude prison of selfishness”, “his sharp foresight, his incomparable capacity for analysis, his love for others, according to a model of internationalism that was unparalleled”, acquires a greater weight.

“Remembering Fidel means above all reflecting on our world, on its many injustices, on our capacity to correct these distortions and, above all, on our will to act in this direction.”
