The passing of Fidel Castro has been a time of deep sorrow and profound loss for progressive, anti-war and social justice forces across the world have felt. While the heart of Fidel may have ceased beating on the night of Friday, November 25, his legacy and work continue in the Cuban Revolution, a living example that a better world is possible.
