PM Barrow expresses condolences on the passing of Fidel Castro

Posted: Sunday, November 27, 2016. 6:34 a.m. CST.

By BBN Staff: Prime Minister Dean Barrow sent the below letter of condolences to President Raul Castro of Cuba on the passing of Fidel Castro.

26th November 2016                       

Dear President Raúl Castro Ruz,

This note is penned with a heavy heart. You have lost your brother, the Cuban People have lost their avatar, and humanity has lost a giant for the ages. As a leader, bestriding history, Fidel proved, in unending ways, his love for the Cuban people, and all people, especially those suffering from injustice or neglect. His leadership of Cuba was one replete with the sacrifices made by your nation: whether in pursuit of its own sovereignty or the liberation of Southern Africa, or in the saving of hundreds of thousands of lives around the world by copious humanitarian aid, or in the everyday work of the Cuban Medical Brigade, or in the education outreach to so many from literacy to the post-graduate level. Because of the fraternity and self-sacrifice deployed by Fidel and Cuba, the people of ‘Nuestra America’ and the globe owe an unpayable debt to the Commander-in-Chief.

On behalf of the Government and People of Belize, I therefore extend our most profound condolences.

But we know that in death Fidel will continue to inspire. Thus, we will take comfort from his enduring legacy, from the triumph represented by his life and the unmatchable work that, together with you, and all the other heroes of the Revolution, he did for Cuba, the region, and the world.

With greatest sympathy and solidarity,

Rt. Hon. Dean Oliver Barrow

Prime Minister of Belize

Fidel Castro passed away just after midnight on Friday.

    Mr. Castro of course, was, a man of unwavering stability. He wanted to carry out that revolution and he did. He may be worth praising for standing on his decision. But’ consider all the people who made to suffer. I personally saw a photo of a person by the name TOM WHITE who was put in prison for many years. I saw the mage of him before and after. He was very much deteriorated in his health. I just cannot believe how people could hold hm high as a hero.
