Cuba’s Fidel Castro Confident His Ideas Will Endure

HAVANA – “The ideas of the Cuban Communists will remain,” Fidel Castro said Tuesday in a speech to the closing session of the 7th congress of Cuba’s ruling Communist Party.

“Soon I will turn 90. Such an idea would never have occurred to me and it was never the result of an effort, it was a whim of chance,” said the man who ruled the island from the triumph of the revolution in 1959 until 2006, when a grave illness forced him to step down in favor of younger brother Raul Castro.

“This may be one of the last times I speak in this hall,” Fidel told the delegates.

“We all get our turn, but the ideas of the Cuban Communists will remain as evidence that on this planet, if you work with fervor and dignity, you can produce the material and cultural goods that human beings need, and we must struggle without truce to obtain them,” Fidel Castro said during his second public appearance this month.

He took part April 7 in an event at a Havana school honoring Raul Castro’s late wife, Vilma Espin, a prominent figure in the revolution who became Cuba’s most powerful woman.
