The revolutionary faith of believing in youth – As expressed by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution on a past anniversary of the Young Communists League
We believe in youth, we believe in youth. I repeat myself because believing in youth is an attitude, believing in youth represents a thought.
Believing in youth determines a conduct, and our conduct as revolutionary leaders would not be the same if we did not have faith in youth. If we did not believe in youth, our conduct, our attitude would be different, our work with youth would be different and the results, of not believing or believing, would also be very different.
