Fidel  Castro: His teachings and legacy will remain in the memory of all peoples

The Latin American Society of Political Economy and Critical Thinking salutes the Cuban people for the physical loss of the leader of the revolution in Cuba. His example is our legacy and his teachings inspire our daily practice to articulate popular and specific professional knowledge to assay various ways of transition from capitalism to socialism. The teachings of Fidel are many, among others, that "everything that has to be changed should be changed", as example of criticism and permanent transformation in a world with recurrent mutations. The leader of the revolution teaches us critical thinking in everyday life, even for self-criticism and renewal of thinking and doing themselves to ensure the anticapitalist, antiimperialist and anticolonial perspective. As legacy, we assume the responsibility from SEPLA to deepen critical studies of contemporary capitalist society and to think of the horizon of social transformation. The Cuban experience is invaluable in guiding the dreams of a socialist horizon. From SEPLA we say with all peoples struggling for their liberation: HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE COMANDANTE FIDEL !
