Fidel Castro: The Cuban people will overcome (+ Photos and Video)

By: Fidel Castro Ruz

 

Speech by the leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, at the closing of the 7th Congress.

 

Is a superhuman effort direct any people in times of crisis. Without them, the changes would be impossible. In a meeting like this, in which more than a thousand representatives chosen by the revolutionary people themselves, which they delegated his authority, means for all the greatest honor they have received in life, this privilege adds congregate be revolutionary is the result of our own consciousness. 

Why I became a socialist, more clearly, why I became a Communist? That word that expresses the most distorted and maligned concept of history by those who had the privilege of exploiting the poor, dispossessed since they were deprived of all material goods that provide work, talent and human energy. Since when man lives in this dilemma, over time without limit. I know you do not need this explanation but maybe some listeners. 

I speak simply to be better understood I am not ignorant, extremist, or blind, or acquired my ideology on my own studying economics. 

I did not preceptor when he was a student of law and political science, in which that has great weight. Of course then he had about 20 years and was fond of sports and mountain climbing. No preceptor to help me in the study of Marxism-Leninism; was no more than a theoretical and, of course, had total confidence in the Soviet Union. Lenin's work outraged after 70 years of revolution. What a history lesson! We can say that they should not take another 70 years before another event like the Russian Revolution happen, that humanity has another example of a great social revolution that meant a huge step in the fight against colonialism and his sidekick, imperialism . 

Perhaps, however, the greatest danger now hovering over the earth derives from the destructive power of modern weaponry that could undermine peace in the world and make it impossible to vidahumana on the earth's surface. 

The species would disappear like the dinosaurs disappeared, perhaps there would be time for new forms of intelligent life or maybe the sun's heat to melt grow all the solar system planets and their satellites, as many scientists recognize. If certain theories of several of them, which are not ignorant laymen, the practical man must learn more and adapt to reality. If the species survives a space much longer future generations will know much more than we do, but first have to solve a big problem. How to feed the billions of human beings whose realities inevitably collide with the limits for drinking water and natural resources they need? 

Some or perhaps many of you are wondering where is the policy in this speech. Believe me I am ashamed to say it, but politics is here in these moderate words. Hopefully many humans concern ourselves with these realities and not continue as in the days of Adam and Eve eating forbidden apples. Who will feed the hungry people of Africa with no technology at their fingertips, no rain, no dams, no more underground deposits covered by sands? We will see that say governments signed casien whole climate commitments. 

We must constantly hammering on these issues and I do not want to dwell beyond the essentials. 

I must soon turn 90, I never would have thought such an idea and never was the result of an effort, it was sheer chance. I will be as soon as everyone else. All will come our turn, but will the ideas of the Cuban communists as proof that on this planet, if you work with fervor and dignity, can produce the material and cultural goods that humans need, and we must fight relentlessly to obtain them. To our brothers in Latin America and the world we must convey that the Cuban people will overcome. 

Perhaps it is the last time you talk in this room. I voted for all candidates submitted for consultation by Congress and appreciate the invitation and the honor of listening. I congratulate them all, and first mate Raul Castro for his magnificent effort. 

Undertake the march and will refine what we should improve, with utmost loyalty and united force, as Martí, Maceo and Gomez in unstoppable march.
