The Federation of Cuban Workers (CTC) and national trade unions has a issued a call on the Cuban people to mobilize to celebrate May Day, in a joyfyl environment of unity and commitment in the defense of socialism, under the banner of “Unity is our strength.”
There are many reasons for us to make this celebration of the global proletariat the greatest demonstration of support for our Revolution, Raúl and the Communist Party of Cuba, as well as a tribute to our historic leader, Comandante en Jefe Fidel Castro Ruz.
This will be an opportunity to reaffirm the sacred oath to fulfill his Concept of Revolution endorsed by our people.
JG: My great and lovely daughter-in-law, Kathleen McGirr, was born on a May First. She and my first son, George, gave me one of my six great grandchildren, Lilly Grace Gonzalez, who is a voracious reader and likes poetry.
