Fidel Castro is and will be the cornerstone of Socialist Revolution of Cuba, as a free manager of the construction and consolidation of the Patria Grande, an example of struggle for the welfare of humanity, said Jose Guillermo Dalence, rector of the University, reports PL.
The university authority recounted the historic feats of the Cuban leader before and after the triumph of the Revolution in January 1959, he stressed his solidarity with the poorest countries of the world and especially those in Latin America.
Citing a phrase from German poet and playwright Berthold Brecht, the rector said that there are men who struggle all their lives, the essentials, and one of them is Fidel Castro, Cuban by birth, a lawyer, Marxist by conviction, Marti follower by projection, but illustrious son of the whole Patria Grande for his fight against the injustice and exploitation many nations of this world suffered or are suffering.
Dalence added that an example of that solidarity are the thousands of Cuban doctors who go to different corners of the world to save lives, thousands of young people from around the world who are studying in Cuba, the Operation Miracle program and in education Yes I can , through which Bolivia eradicated illiteracy.
For his part, Eric Valdes, Counsellor of the Cuban Embassy in Bolivia, thanked the board of the Twentieth Century University for the gesture and said the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution will be very pleased to receive the title of an educational institution like that.
Honorary titles, he said, are awards given to teachers who left a legacy, and that is the case of Fidel, who taught us the exact meaning of solidarity, as a worthy and faithful student of our national hero, José Martí He highlighted Valdes.
Marti, said the diplomat, taught us not to give our surplus, but share what we have. Health, education, professional training and love is what Fidel has given to the world, in reciprocity to the solidarity that Cuba receives from many countries in the world, he added.
F I D E L –he said- are five letters that make the exploiters tremble and fill the poor and poorest in the world with happiness and hope.
PL adds that the recognition was given to Fidel Castro through the Counsellor of the Cuban Embassy in La Paz, with the assistance of the Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera, in the Plaza del Minero in the municipality of Llallagua, located in the north of the department of Potosi.
