The Guardian 28 January, 2009

on Cuba’s 50 years of revolution

Communist Party of Cuba, Havana, Cuba

Dear comrades,

It is with great pleasure that our party greets you and the people of Cuba on the occasion marking the enormous achievement of 50 years of revolution.

We note that this historic event would not have been possible without the leadership of comrade Fidel Castro and the Communist Party of Cuba.

Since the early days of the Moncada in 1953, Fidel Castro demonstrated what was possible to do with the support of the peoples.

Despite the inhumane US blockade of the island since the beginning of the revolution, what the Cuban revolution has achieved in the fields of education, health and socialist democracy is simply magnificent.

On this, the first day of January 2009, we in Australia raise our flags in solidarity with the Cuban revolution and celebrate together with the Cuban people the right for self determination and join millions of voices around the world in demanding an end to the US blockade and the freedom of the Five Cuban heroes, prisoners of the empire.

Please receive our fraternal greetings especially for Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro Ruz who, along with his people and with inspiration drawn from the Cuban hero Jose Marti, has been able to build a new type of society.

Fifty years of Cuban revolution gives us hope that a new world is definitely possible and necessary.

Please extend our greetings to Commander Raul Castro, the membership of the Communist Party and the people of Cuba.

Yours in comradeship,

Dr Hannah Middleton
