Havana, The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz-Canel, affirmed today that within the Revolution there is space for everything and everyone, except for those who seek to destroy the collective project.
The president expressed those ideas in the act of evocation for the 60th anniversary of the speech of the historical leader Fidel Castro, known as Words to the Intellectuals, which took place at the José Martí National Library, in this capital.
According to the Twitter account of the Presidency, the head of state stressed that when Fidel Castro alluded to “everything within the Revolution,” it meant that the only thing that was not under discussion was precisely the revolutionary process.
‘She is not a fact in dispute. It is the fact itself, the raison d’être of that encounter ‘with Cuban intellectuals and artists, he specified.
Words to the Intellectuals is considered an essential text, in which the country’s cultural policy was projected.
The speech took place at the closing of a series of meetings between artists and intellectuals and leaders of the nascent Revolution, at the National Library in 1961, which were led by Fidel Castro, then Prime Minister.
Issues such as freedom of creation, the artists’ links with institutions and the country’s cultural needs were brought to the debate, in which the concerns of the artistic sector were also exposed.
These exchanges of ideas constituted a platform for unity, as well as marked the path of Cuban cultural policy.
They were also the starting point for the nascent Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba, Uneac.
