HAVANA, January 02, /ITAR-TASS/. Cuba is counteracting a never-ending campaign of political and ideological subversive activity aimed at destroying socialism from the inside, the country’s leader, Raul Castro said Wednesday at a gala ceremony in Santiago de Cuba that was devoted to the 55th anniversary since the victory of the Cuban revolution.
He said attempts were being made two implant a platform of neo-liberalistic mentality in people’s consciousness for the purpose of restoring neo-colonial capitalism.
Campaigns of this kind target the very foundations of the Socialist revolution through manipulations with history and by making a ploy of the overall crisis in the capitalist system, Castro said.
Their instigators connive at individualism, egotism and the spread of mercantile thinking in detriment of national values, identity and culture.
The campaigners are trying to peddle the so-called advantages of “ignoring ideology and social mentality” to the young people so as to break up the links between Cuba’s historic leadership and new generations of people, as well as to produce indecision and pessimism towards the future.”
Raul Castro expressed the hope, however, that the revolution will emerge victorious from this ideological battle. He pointed out the strength and patriotism of Cuban intellectuals, arts professionals, university teachers, and students.
The official gala ceremony was devoted to the anniversary of the revolution was held in Carlos Manuel de Cespedes Park. Located there is the building from which Fidel Castro made a declaration January 1, 1959, saying that the rebel army had won a victory over the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.
About 3,500 people, including immediate participants in the revolutionary events, members of the Communist Party leadership, and high-rank government officials attended the ceremony.
