A Communist should have largeness of mind and he should be staunch and active, looking upon the interests of the revolution as his very life and subordinating his personal interests to those of the revolution; always and everywhere he should adhere to principle and wage a tireless struggle against all incorrect ideas and actions, so as to consolidate the collective life of the Party and strengthen the ties between the Party and the masses; he should be more concerned about the Party and the masses than about any private person, and more concerned about others than about himself. Only thus can he be considered a Communist.
Quito, Sep 18 (Prensa Latina) - Inspired by Ernesto Che Guevara, three young Latin Americans have toured until today about 6,500 kilometers of the region on motorcycles in solidarity with the Cuban Five, convicted in the United States14 years ago.
Like the legendary guerrilla’s feat, Argentine Milco Figueroa and Dario Valenzuela, and Bolivian Juan Tola, graduates of Medicine in Cuba, are doing the tour. They were already in Venezuela and Colombia in the last two months, and now in Ecuador.
The physicians told Prensa Latina that during the journey, they have verified the realities the continent is experiencing, as Che did, confirm the interest in the case of these Cuban patriots, and the need to continue releasing his cause for his freedom.
This journey, started on July 17 in Venezuela, is part of the project “Sembrando caminos con los Cinco” (Seeding Roads with the Five), to join new voices to that in the world demand the U.S. government the release of the Cuban patriots.
This is one of the world actions on the occasion of the anniversary of the detention of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, and also Rene Gonzalez. The latter still remains in U.S. territory under supervised release, after completing his prison term.
The three youth, graduated in 2009 at the Havana-based Latin American School of Medicine, materialized this project after graduating in March this year as specialists in Comprehensive General Medicine, in Venezuela, after working in distant areas of the Amazon.
According to Valenzuela, this initiative seeks to disseminate the status of these antiterrorist fighters among students, workers, and leftist movements, among whom the case and the need to redouble efforts to release them is known very little yet.
