63rd Anniversary of the Triumph of the Cuban Revolution
January 1, 1969
Long Live Revolutionary Cuba!
January 1, 2022 marks the 63rd anniversary of the victory of the Cuban Revolution over the U.S.-backed dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista. It also marks another year that Cuba has prevailed over the coronavirus pandemic despite the brutal U.S. blockade which deprives Cuba of its ability to engage in normal trading relations with other countries for vital medicines, food and other essential items and impedes and blocks normal exchanges with the rest of the world. Not only has Cuba created its own vaccines to protect its population from the coronavirus pandemic, it has one of the highest rates of vaccination of any country because it is independent of the dictate of pharmaceutical oligopolies. Furthermore, Cuba has contributed vaccines and healthcare professionals to those in need in other countries showing once again the model of internationalism the world needs at this time more than ever.
On this occasion, the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist-Leninist) conveys its warmest revolutionary greetings to the people of Cuba and their leadership, with full confidence that revolutionary Cuba will overcome the challenges it faces as it has always done — based on mobilizing the people’s ingenuity and steadfastness, and with the broad support of the peoples of the world with whom revolutionary Cuba has always shared weal and woe.
We salute Cuba’s President Miguel Díaz-Canel whose leadership has inspired the Communist Party, government and people to prevail over the many challenges Cuba has faced in the past two years and continues to face today. We salute the Cuban Communist Party and the Cuban people whose courage, tenacity and humanity are without equal.
Since the triumph of the revolution, through their resistance and solidarity from around the world they have attained the goal of an independent and sovereign nation. They have scored momentous victories without sacrificing principles on any front.
Thanks to Revolutionary Cuba, the peoples of all Latin America and the Caribbean have a beacon of social justice on the basis of the affirmation of human rights and a force which contributes to peace and stability in the region and the world.
Long Live Revolutionary Cuba!
Congratulations on the Occasion of the 63rd Anniversary of the Cuban Revolution!
Hasta la Victoria Siempre!
63 Years of Independence, Justice
and Human Dignity!

January 1st, 2022, marks the 63rd anniversary of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, when the people of Cuba led by Fidel Castro, seized their destiny in their own hands, affirming and exercising their right to self-determination, authentic freedom, and human dignity. The Canadian Network On Cuba (CNC) on behalf of the Canada-Cuba friendship and solidarity movement, sends to the people of Cuba, the Cuban government and Cuba’s revolutionary leadership our warmest greetings on this occasion.
In 2021, Cuba weathered the COVID-19 pandemic, providing an example to the world by achieving one of the world’s highest rates of vaccination through its own vaccines, which, with its immense generosity and dedication to internationalism, it now offers to the entire planet. Cuba’s success is a direct and profound challenge to the global vaccine apartheid being imposed by western pharmaceutical monopolies and imperialist states.
In the past year, the Cuban people have also confronted and defeated a concerted U.S. imperialist orchestrated, organized and financed destabilization campaign. These nefarious and internationally condemned actions were aided and abetted here in Canada, among others, by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s malicious, scurrilous, and incessant disinformation against the heroic island nation. Canadians rejected this shameful and naked alignment with the criminal U.S. war against Cuba as thousands signed various parliamentary petitions condemning Washington’s economic war and campaign of subversion and calling on the government of Canada to take concrete and meaningful steps in opposing the U.S. war on Cuba.
The CNC once more reaffirms the inalienable right of all peoples and countries to determine their future and their political, economic, and social system without external interference.
The CNC is confident that the Cuban people will overcome the challenges they face — particularly, the criminal and immoral economic and financial blockade imposed by U.S. imperialism.
As the Cuban people continue marching on the path of independence, sovereignty, social justice, self-determination, and human dignity, they are not alone as solidarity and support for the Cuban Revolution continues to grow and deepen across the world.
¡Viva la Revolución Cubana!
On behalf of the Canadian Network on Cuba
