Venezuelan gov't congratulates Cuba for 54 years of revolution
Venezuelan authorities sent a communiqué to Cuba congratulating the people of the island for 54 years of revolution. January 1 marks the overthrow of General Fulgencio Batista by the Cuban leftist revolutionary movement
The statement stresses, "the Cuban revolution can count on the Bolivarian Revolution" to "reciprocate all the love and solidarity that has been lavished on our people, in their struggle to be increasingly free and sovereign."
On January 1, 1959, the Cuban leftist revolutionary movement ousted the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.
At the recent UN climate summit President Nicolás Maduro gave a speech on global warming highlighting the fact that "Capitalism has ignored over decades nature's capacity to load and recover," and, accordingly, "if we want to change climate, we need to change the system."
