The book Fidel (Castro) in the Mexican imagination, was presented in this capital along with photographic and audiovisual exhibition “Fidel is Fidel,” which recognizes the life and work of the leader of the Cuban Revolution.
The book, which is an initiative of the Mexican Senate, compiles images and texts about Fidel Castro from Mexican personalities.
Katiuska Blanco, Cuban journalist and writer, presented it at the Casona de Xicotencatl, the former headquarters of the Senate, in the historic center of the city.
She said that the testimony of 30 Mexicans touches all edges of the personality of Fidel Castro and shows him as the man who always fought and found friendship in Mexico.
The photos of the young Fidel, the guerrilla leader, remind us that the Cuban Revolution was the reference that gave identity to the libertarian aspirations of Latin American youth, the vice-coordinator of the Party of the Democratic Revolution, Senator Dolores Padierna.
Cuban Ambassador Dagoberto Rodriguez appreciated the initiative of the Mexican Senate and stressed that the book plays a part in the history of friendship between the two countries.
