With deep sorrow, the Revolutionary Communist
Party of Britain (Marxist-Leninist) learned that on Friday, November 25, 2016,
at 10:29 pm, Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz, leader of the Cuban Revolution, passed
away, aged 90.
RCPB(ML) extends its profound condolences to Comrade Raul
Castro, to the Cuban people and their leadership, and to Comrade Fidel
Castros family on the very sad news of Fidels passing.
Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz was leader of the Cuban revolution
that has inspired countless millions in their struggle for social progress and
a just world. He lived according to the maxim that principles mean more than
life itself. Following his death, in the years to come, we are sure that his
revolutionary spirit, his humanity and his internationalism, will burn in the
hearts of all who are striving for a better world and a human-centred society.
According to Fidels wishes, his remains will be
cremated and interred in Santiago de Cuba, where the Cuban Revolution began.
Beginning today, November 26, nine days of national mourning will continue
until December 4. Together, let us mourn Fidels passing.
¡Hasta la Victoria Siempre!
Poem quoted by Fidel
For this freedom that is the right of the youth
For this freedom
As beautiful as life itself
We will have to give our all
Even our shadows
And it will never be enough.
Even Our Shadows
