During a moving act of celebration for the 82nd birthday of Fidel Castro, which took place on the Journalist Club of this city, López y Rivas presented an anthology under his signature, which contained the most representative speeches of the leader of the Cuban Revolution from the 1950’s to our days.
The famous La Historia me Absolverá, his Speech for the intellectuals and the Second Declaration of Havana, are some of the texts included in the already mentioned volume of the man, who according to the Mexican writer, is considered one of the greatest orators in history.
As part of the celebrations in Mexico for Fidel’s birthday, there was also screened a moving documentary on his personality, directed by the already deceased Cuban movie maker Santiago Álvarez.
Also, Jesús Escamilla, in representation of the Mexican Movement of Solidarity with Cuba, highlighted the ethical height of the Cuban leader and called for the ending of the prolonged blockade of the United States against the Caribbean nation.
Escamilla also demanded the immediate freeing of the Five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters unjustly imprisoned in U.S. jails.
In this big act in tribute to Fidel Castro in this capital there were also present representatives from the Bolivian, Venezuelan and Cuban embassies in Mexico.
