35th anniversary of the Sandinista Revolution
I salute the July 19 Sandinista victory with the same enthusiasm, as if it were July 26, 1953 or January 1, 1959.
Nicaragua has become an irreversible bastion of the anti-imperialist struggle.
You and Rosario – along with Bolivarian leader Hugo Chávez, inescapable champion of the struggle for socialism and the anti-imperialist revolution in Latin America – will occupy a place of honor in the history of the peoples of this continent, which will one day also be able to count on the intelligent and hard-working people of the United States.
