Thousand died and thousands more fled the evil regime of Fidel Castro yet Black Lives Matter mourn his loss and strive to learn lesson from ‘El Comandante’. In BLM’s article they say,
“There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety. Although no leader is without their flaws, we must push back against the rhetoric of the right and come to the defense of El Comandante.”
They go on:
“And there are lessons that we must revisit and heed as we pick up the mantle in changing our world, as we aspire to build a world rooted in a vision of freedom and the peace that only comes with justice. It is the lessons that we take from Fidel,” the group claims.
The Daily Caller reports,
Thousands of Cubans fled to the U.S. from Castro’s repressive dictatorship and settled in Miami’s “Little Havana.” The Cuba Archive Project estimated the Castro regime killed over 9,200 people.
According to Black Lives Matter, there are many feelings that accompany the death of Castro, like fear, loss and anxiety. It is crucial, the article maintains, to defend Castro, despite his “flaws,” against “the rhetoric of the right.”
The group maintains that Castro’s life teaches that revolution can start with a single idea within a small group of people.
“From Fidel, we know that revolution is sparked by an idea, by radical imaginings, which sometimes take root first among just a few dozen people coming together in the mountains. It can be a tattered group of meager resources, like in Sierra Maestro in 1956 or St. Elmo Village in 2013,” the article states.
Fidel’s death, according to the group, also demonstrates that when people are united in a collective vision, they can achieve anything.
“As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!” the article finished.
