The National Network On Cuba congratulates the people of Cuba on the just concluded electoral process. We offer warm greetings of solidarity to the new President, Miguel Díaz-Canel, and to the returning and newly elected members of the National Assembly and Council of State. We also join the Cuban people and many people throughout the world in recognizing and thanking Fidel and Raúl Castro for their struggle, leadership, and inspiration that has enabled many to truly experience that another world; a more just and dignified world, is possible. We again thank the Cuban people and their government for providing education, health care, and solidarity to the peoples of the world and to do so as their duty to humanity.
We take these examples and values as lessons to us as we pledge to continuing working in the United States to end the economic, commercial, and financial blockade of Cuba and for the respect of Cuban sovereignty.
As the next generation assumes leadership, we are confident that they will uphold the dignity and principles of the Revolution as they have demonstrated throughout their years of service to Cuba. In the face of the challenges facing the world from Latin America to the Middle East, we express our confidence in your leadership and again send our solidarity.
