A University Student Federation founded with passion

A University Student Federation founded with passionIt has been 95 years since that December 20, 1922, when the Student University Federation (FEU) of Cuba was founded, which continues without interruption breaking into the present with all the strength and vitality of the students it brings together.

Far from imagining that young man of a profoundly anti-imperialist nature and protagonist in his time, Julio Antonio Mella, the eternal founder, the transcendence in the Cuban future of that kind of cry in defense of the essence of the Cuban nation, and its student body. And that from then on, in every decisive moment of struggle, it would become the ideal of a necessarily better future time, materialized in the commitment of generations of university students, with their people and history, because the university would never stop fighting again.

This student organization would also welcome courageous young people such as Rafael Trejo, Rubén Martínez Villena, José Antonio Echeverria and many others who, with absolute fidelity to their principles and with fervent commitment for the revolutionary cause, offered their heroism, and even their blood, and they became an example to follow for several generations.

The FEU has always been a symbol of the spirit of rebellion and militancy of young Cubans. And in singular symbolism, confirmed in the work of the Revolution itself and in its extraordinary expression "the Cuban people will win", stands the figure of the enterprising and eternal young rebel who fought from the FEU and accompanied it in all its successive battles, where he also became a revolutionary, the undisputed leader of the Cuban people, the undefeated Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz.

As an essential protagonist of that and this time, Mella and the FEU continue pointing the way: "We are optimistic; we trust in victory, our youth and ideals encourage us to fight and succeed."

University students promote their Federation

It is a privilege to be a young university student in Cuba and belong to this legendary organization that represents, in more than twenty centers of higher education in the country, the tangible sign that only with unity can great things be done, and achieve the purposes and the results emanated from the agreements of their congresses every five years, and defend the principles that sustain it since its foundation.

The actions deployed on this anniversary have been many and varied and began very early from the student brigades and at the center level. Thus, they highlighted the exchange achieved in the universities of the country, with the presence of intellectuals, folk singers and comedians with the slogan "Siente lo cubano" and the Tenth Edition of the University Book and Reading Festival (FULL), whose central headquarters were Cuba Pavilion, in Havana, dedicated mainly to the figures of Fidel Castro Ruz, Ernesto Che Guevara and Juan Nuiry Sánchez, and which included in its daily program different motivations, such as the October Socialist Revolution, the Cuban and Latin American student movement, sports university and Cuban culture.

A beautiful political-cultural gala took place in the capital Karl Marx Theater, with the participation of amateur artists of this organization, the nine and a half decades of the Alma Mater Magazine, a publication created in November 1922 by Julio Antonio Mella, who turned it into the voice of young university students.

Also, the work of recovery of plaques, monuments and historical sites belonging to the routes of Columns 2 and 8 commanded by Commanders Camilo Cienfuegos and Ernesto Che Guevara, respectively, in the “Invasión a Occidente”, during the last stage of the struggles for the independence of Cuba, as a worthy tribute to those who gave their energies and youth to the achievement of the longed-for freedom.

This significant anniversary of a federation, which represents the true interests and rights of university students, is only possible in a free and sovereign country.
