By: Teodoro Rentería Arróyave

Humans are mortal, so decided nature, despite this fatal condition, great beings are imposed to it and by their works and actions become immortal. A clear example of this is the recently deceased, Fidel Castro Ruz.

Our first reaction to knowing the unfortunate death, we wrote for everyone on social media.

Fidel Castro Ruz undertook the journey to the eternal ether. The world dismisses the greatest of the leaders who forged the twentieth century, the Cubans to their Commander in Chief. As he predicted: history has already acquitted him.

Countless times the enemies of the great Cuban Revolution “killed” Fidel, for that very reason when barely transcended the news, we thought it was another rumor.

Seconds later, probably after one minute at the most, the sad news were confirmed: At 22:29 on this Friday, November 25th, 2016, Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro died. The news had been confirmed by Cuban President Raúl Castro Ruz in a speech over the closing of the National Television News, which was reproduced in video, audio and also written, millions of times around the world.

With an emotional voice and calm at the same time, the consanguineous brother, the companion of the armed struggle, the comrade of the construction of a great revolution, said:

“Dear people of Cuba: With deep pain I appear to inform our people and the people of the world that today November 25th, at 10:29 p.m., the Commander in Chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, died.

In compliance with the expressed will of Companion Fidel, his remains will be cremated. In the early hours of Saturday 26th, the funeral organizing committee will provide our people with detailed information on the organization of the posthumous Homage that will honor the founder of the Cuban Revolution. Ever onward to victory!”

Fidel Castro Ruz, survived more than 632 attacks designed, sponsored and carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Fidel himself described them this way: “The CIA acted in two ways: a direct one with organized agents and directed directly by it; and another, a more subtle, indirect method, the manipulation of dozens of counterrevolutionary organizations, some created by them and that served as “cover”, while others were organized spontaneously, they were under their control.

The CIA gives money, weapons, traces political theory. Strategy and tactics. One of the tactics was the assassination of the revolutionary leaders, and for that they have organized dozens of plans, one way or another…

Maybe hundreds of plans! But we, with the organized people, with the Defense Committee of Revolution, with the State Security organs, have fought all these plans of attacks, and our people have learned to confront the CIA …”

Today a subject, from whom we would not like to give names, Donald Trump, on his Twitter account wrote “Castro is dead … he was a brutal dictator”. The Cuban millionaires in the comfort of exile in Miami, set up their party and took champagne. Vileness of the low spectacle of certain layers of society in service of the empire, which is brutal and unpunished.

They are few, but we must show them, while the Commander-in-Chief of the glorious Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, who prevailed to the empire, crossed the doors of immortality, and history, as he predicted, already acquitted the greatest of the leaders who forged the twentieth century.
