The Communist Leader Fidel Castro, who directed Cuba along the path of Socialism for nearly half a century passed away in Havana in Cuba yesterday (25th) night. This was officially announced by the present Leader of Cuba Rahul Castro.
Fidel Castro who was loved and respected not only by people in Cuba but the progressive people all over the world was 90 years old when he passed away. Fidel Castro, with a small group, was able to give leadership to bring victory for the Socialist Revolution in Cuba in 1959. Fidel Castro built the Communist Party of Cuba and his leadership enabled to build a socialist economic system in Cuba and protect it.
Fidel Castro was a colossal inspiration for the world Socialist movement and even when the Socialist camp broke down his leadership was able to protect Socialism in Cuba and display to the world the successfulness of socialist administration.
He was able to guide Cuba to confront huge economic and political attacks from the capitalist camp – specially from the USA. At a time capitalism is breaking down throughout the world and is proving its impotency, Castro has been able to show the world the socialist practice that could be the answer for the woes the world is suffering under capitalism.
