Submitted by cgpiadmin on Thu, 16/02/2017 - 20:14

I am writing in response to the fitting tribute that appeared in the Dec. 16-31, 2016 issue of MEL to the memory of the great revolutionary leader Fidel Castro Ruz who passed away recently, in the article entitled `Farewell to the Undefeated Commandante, Fidel!'

The revolutionary leader was instrumental in the liberation of his country Cuba in 1959 from the clutches of the right-wing dictatorship headed by Batista, and for helping the brave people of that country brave decades of sanctions and aggression at the hands of the US imperialists and decades of encirclement.
