Dear comrades of Communist Party of Cuba:
We at the Party of Communists USA (PCUSA) observe upon the death of that great Cuban revolutionary and international leader in the struggle for socialism, Fidel Castro, the enormous legacy he has left for us worldwide. Comrade Fidel Castro Ruz was an outstanding Marxist-Leninist leader of the Cuban revolution who gave the Cuban people security from U.S. imperialism, and removed the parasite that was Batista and the capitalist mafia. Bringing the people literacy, and making Cuba a leading nation in Latin America, Comrade Fidel lived a life of serving the people of Cuba, and of the world. He will be deeply missed by communists and working people everywhere, and by nations fighting the struggle for national liberation. His work to advance Cuba and the fight against imperialism will never be forgotten. His wise policies led Cuba through many dark times, including the Bay of Pigs Invasion, assassination of Che Guevara, and the 1962 Caribbean Crisis. Comrade Fidel himself survived over 500 assassination attempts. His ideals and vision live on, and we remaining will carry on his fight. Now with comrade Fidel gone, we fear this will be seen by the imperialists as a golden opportunity to target the Cuban Republic for regime change. We hope this will not be the case, but the imperialists of the United States, United Kingdom, France, et cetera, cannot be trusted. Comrade Fidel was a brilliant strategist and thinker. The most important lesson he taught us was to never let our guard down. On this solemn occasion, we salute our Comandante Fidel, and stand in solidarity with you, our Cuban comrades. Remain ever vigilant!
Death to Capitalism!
Death to Imperialism!
