Letter of condolence for Cuban embassy

The Executive Committee and the member associations of the International Federation of Resistance Fighters (FIR) – Association of Antifascists have been deeply saddened by the death of the long-standing President and Máximo Líder of Cuba Fidel Castro.

The veterans of the antifascist struggle have been following the development of the country and Fidel Castro’s policy with great interest and solidarity since the Cuban Revolution. In many cases, the FIR and its member associations have been engaged against the American blockade policy and later for the release of the “Cuban Five”.

Fidel Castro was for us in this debate the representative of the legitimate Cuban, who defended the interests of his own people, but also those of the peoples who fought for anticolonial independence.

When he resigned from his position for reasons of age, he remained for us the representative of the struggle for a social, independent and truly democratic Cuba.

With his death lose the Cuban people and the democratic world an important partner for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.

We will never forget him.
