“Homenaje a Fidel Castro en su 90 cumpleaños”

 

“A Tribute to Fidel Castro on his 90th Birthday”

 

 

Langues/Idiomas : Français, Español, English.

 

Français : Ce 13 août 2016, Fidel célèbre 90 ans d’une vie qu’il a assumée comme peu d’hommes sur cette planète. Sa stature de champion du développement humain et de la solidarité internationale a fait de Cuba un acteur significatif sur la scène mondiale. Sa longévité en a fait le dirigeant le plus expérimenté de la planète, un combattant infatigable pour toutes ces causes qui ont valeur universelle (pour l’éducation, la santé, la paix, la solidarité, la justice, l’environnement; contre l’hégémonisme, le pillage, le néolibéralisme). Fidel compte assurément parmi les hommes d’exception. Cet anniversaire nous invite à explorer certains aspects de son œuvre et de sa personnalité.

 

Español: Este 13 de agosto de 2016, Fidel celebra 90 años de una vida que ha asumido como pocos hombres en este planeta. Su postura de paladín del desarrollo humano y de la solidaridad internacional hizo de Cuba un actor importante en la escena mundial. Su longevidad le ha convertido en el líder con más experiencia en el mundo, un luchador incansable por todas las causas que tienen un valor universal (en pro de la educación, la salud, la paz, la solidaridad, la justicia, el medio ambiente; en contra de la hegemonismo, el saqueo, el neoliberalismo). No cabe duda que Fidel cuenta entre los hombres excepcionales. Este aniversario llama a explorar ciertos aspectos de su obra y personalidad.

 

English : This August 13, 2016, Fidel celebrates 90 years of a life that he has assumed as few men on this planet. His stature as champion of human development and international solidarity has made Cuba a significant player on the world stage. His longevity has made him the most experienced leader in the world, a tireless fighter for all the causes that have universal value (education, health services, peace, solidarity, justice, and the environment against hegemony, plunder and neo-liberalism).  Fidel is certainly among the exceptional men. This anniversary calls on us to explore certain aspects of his work and personality.
