    VP Ramiro Valdes: Cuba will not Return to the Past
    Juan C. Domínguez Taño / Saturday, 26 July 2014 09:48

    Cuban Vice-president Ramiro Valdes Menendez that gave the main speech of
    the main rally for Cuba’s National Rebelliousness Day, hosted by
    province of Artemisa, extolled why the called Generation of the
    Centennial attacked the garrisons Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes
    July 26th, 1953.

    In his speech Valdes Menendez said that “The Republic had nothing to do
    with dreams of (Jose) Marti and (Antonio) Maceo, as more than a year
    before a dictator had erased the last vestiges of the representative
    democracy.”

    Before 1959 the Cuban people lived repressed by dictatorship of
    Fulgencio Batista, which meant illiteracy because not all children and
    youths could attend school, hunger hit many homes, there were thousands
    of jobless; banks, many sugar mills, the land and the industry were for
    the most part in foreign hands, as the people suffered the exploitation
    and several other scourges like malnutrition, death by curable diseases,
    life span under 60 years of age, children having to work to make a
    living alongside with their parents, Valdes Menendez says.

    Despite July 26th (1953) affairs did not mean victory, today the country
    lives the reverse situation, Cuba has more than one million university
    graduates, children’s life birth rate is lower than in the US, thanks to
    the work of the Cuban Revolution the country keeps its people away from
    drugs, prostitution, and live a decent life, Valdes Menendez added.

    The also Commandant of the Revolution said that the Cuban people, with
    their internationalist vocation, have met their duty with humanity, as
    in the struggle for freedom in Angola and Namibia, and the end of
    apartheid in South Africa.

    Our health staffers, sports trainers, teachers, and experts in different
    fields have aided several nations in need, Valdes Menendez praised.

    Fidel (Castro) that has always trusted on the people counted on them, as
    during the start of the hard days of the Special Period, when the USSR
    collapsed and our enemies began packing with the ailing dream of
    retaking power and reinstituting the old tyrannical regime, which came
    to an end since 1959, Valdes Menendez stressed.

    Valdes Menendez went over some of the hurdles the Cuban Revolution had
    to face, aggressions of different kinds by the US government and the
    collapse of the socialist bloc. On such as sense he said that the same
    spirit that moved the July 26 also encourages the present-day
    generations, which stick to the commitment of improving the socialist
    model and keep up the conquests reached. “Here (in Artemisa), as in all
    the country, July 26 will live for ever after,” he asserted.

    Cuba will not return to the past, today’s sovereignty, freedom, peace
    and safety will remain as long as the people keep working for the
    welbeing of the nation, highlighted Valdes Menendez.

    The new provinces of Artemisa and Mayabeque continue on with the
    restructuring of the state administration, and the Special Development
    Zone in Mariel will render wealth and prosperity to the nation, said
    Valdes Menendez.

    Our people have shown much courage, therefore, we will never stop our
    struggle for freedom and until we bring back home all of The Five, this
    is a non stop fight in support of them and their family, they are not
    alone, Valdes Menendez said in his words.

    In his closing words Valdes Menendez told Artemisa residents and all the
    Cuban people: this is the work, the merit, the glory of all our people,
    and most of all of the men and women that were killed in action while
    seeking the future. However, without the dedication of our heroic
    martyrs, nothing of today’s achievements would have been possible. Let’s
    us all pay the deserve tribute to all those that gave theur lives to
    make come true the dreams of the (Cuban) Revolution. Inspired on their
    example, we have no other choice than continue on with the everyday
    struggle until our last breath, with the Homeland, with the Revolution,
    and with Socialism.
