Forever immortal 

On behalf of 92 million members of the WORLD FEDERATION OF TRADE UNIONS, I would like to convey to the cuban people,to the CTC, to the State and Party leadership of Socialist Cuba, our deepest condolences from the bottom of our hearts for the Comandante Fidel’s death. He was a leader who, along with Che, along with all his comrades, fought and beat the imperialists and their instruments.
For the WFTU has been the greatest honor Comandante Fidel’s own presence in its Congresses and his great speech to the delegates of the 10th WFTU Congress.
For the World Working Class will always be IMMORTAL.
