REVOLUTION, for Fidel Castro Ruz, Historic Leader of the Cuban
Revolution, is the sense of the historic moment; it’s changing
everything that should be changed; it’s full liberty and equality; it’s
to be treated and to treat others as human beings; it’s our own
emancipation through our own efforts; it’s standing up to powerful
dominant forces inside and outside our social and national space; it is
to defend values we believe in no matter what sacrifice; it’s modesty,
disinterest, altruism, solidarity and heroism; it is fighting bravely,
intelligently and realistically; never lying or breaking ethical
principles; it is the profound conviction that there is no power in the
world able to crush the force of truth and ideas. revolution is unity,
independence, fighting for our dreams of justice for Cuba and for the
world, it is the foundation of our patriotism, our socialism and our
internationalism. Gathered together like this in the Guidelines for
Economic and Social Policies, discussed in the VI Congress of the
Communist Party of Cuba, ratified by the President of the Republic of
Cuba, Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, like a fundamental compass in the
construction of a prosperous and sustainable socialism.

Starting off from this definition, it is possible to work out what is
COUNTER-REVOLUTION; whatever opposes or contravenes that concept. When
we are not treated or don’t treat others as human beings; when we lie
and violate ethical principles; when we are immodest, selfish, mean and
egotistical; when we do not defy powerful dominating forces in our
social and national space. when we do not fight bravely, intelligently
and realistically; when we don’t change everything that should be
changed, when there is not full equality and liberty; when they don’t
allow the Cuba Law Association to exercise its clear human right to have
its constitution, and to realise our dreams of justice for Cuba.
