Solidarity Statement by the St. Lucia Labour Party (SLP) on the 55th Anniversary of the Cuban Revolution
Friday, January 10, 2014

The Saint Lucia Labour Party (SLP) has all the reasons to congratulate the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and the Government and People of that sister Caribbean country on the occasion of the 55th Anniversary of the Cuban Revolution. Fifty-five years is no short period of time and for the Cuban people -- led by the PCC -- to have survived all efforts to reverse its progress, is no easy feat. For five-and-a-half decades the PCC, led by Fidel Castro and now by Raul Castro, has provided the level of sterling leadership that has allowed for the Cuban state to be able to provide for its people in health, education and other human needs, while consistently offering limitless solidarity to people’s causes abroad.
