The same ideals united US writer Alice Walker and actor Danny Glover with the leader of the Revolution Fidel Castro despite having been born in different countries and era.
The struggle for justice and for the rights of humanity unified the will of these three figures that began a battle that as every action, emerges from ideas.
"No other Revolution has meant so much for me like the Cuban process", said months ago the Pulitzer 1983 laureate Alice Walker and which denounced in many occasions the US attempts to dominate the Caribbean island.
Regarding the book The Economic War against Cuba, by journalist and researcher Salim Lamrani, the social activist expressed that for the last four decades she has witnessed the destructive damages of the US economic blockade against one of the most noble peoples in the world.
The US writer has reiterated the work of Fidel Castro in favor of education and considers Cuba "as an illustrative revolution" and recalled "when the Cuban youth went to the mountains and valleys in the 1960's to teach each person how to read and write".
The renowned author of Color Purple expressed her admiration for the ideas and actions of the leader of the Cuban Revolution on his path to eternity who received the appreciation of different generations that shouted, Yo Soy Fidel (I am Fidel) with tears in their eyes.
Meanwhile US actor Danny Glover expressed that his convictions are very much linked to the "Green Olive Giant", expressed in his tireless activism for the release of the Cuban Five.
Glover made known to the world through Youtube the injustices committed against Cuba by the United States despite the media outlets reporting its government's policies and erasing those that differ from the interests of the Empire.
His commitment with the truth and just causes highlighted Fidel Castro´s and Hugo Chavez's wisdom, total conviction to defend the rights of the humble and uniting Latin America and the Caribbean.
The common struggles of Fidel, Alice Walker and Danny Glover continue.
Both US intellectuals were present in Havana to pay tribute to Fidel, on his path to immortality, homage offered by representatives of over 60 high ranking delegations and a nation committed to defend the causes in which their leader struggled for all his life.
Despite his physical disappearance at the age of 90, Fidel's legacy has multiplied; and as World Human Rights Day approaches, activists like Alice Walker and Danny Glover and many others will defend Fidel's Concept of Revolution saying that this idea "will be defended at any cost".
