HAVANA - Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Friday led his first mass rally since an illness forced him from the presidency four years ago.

Castro, 84, wearing his trademark olive green uniform — but without any military insignias — addressed thousands of students and others at the University of Havana, where he warned about the threat of nuclear war should the United States or Israel attack Iran.

University of Havana: Poems for Peace

Camagüey, Sep 3.- Poet Yoerkis Sánchez Cuéllar, who runs the Alma Mater magazine, addressed those gathered at the staircase of the University of Havana on Friday to speak about peace and against war, and he did it in stanzas of 10 octosyllabic lines, as he masterly knows.

Before Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, Sánchez Cuéllar spoke on behalf of the Cuban young people, who are accompanying Fidel in this campaign, because they know he is worried not only for the fate of the Cuban people, but for the fate of the whole humanity in the face of a nuclear conflagration.

Respectfully, Yoerkis recommended U.S. President Barack Obama to listen to Fidel and the arguments he has been stating.

On the other hand, Maydel López Lago, the leader of the Federation of University Students (FEU) added that the new generations must fight for life, instead of being sitting around and twiddling their fingers.

When the new school year is about to begin, the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro conveys a message to the university students in which he convenes them to fight for peace and against a global nuclear war. (Tay Toscano Jerez / Radio Cadena Agramonte).
