Congresswoman Lee Releases Statement on the Passing of Fidel Castro
Oakland, CA - Congresswoman Barbara Lee, a steering committee member of the Congressional Cuba Working Group, released this statement on the passing of Cuban President Fidel Castro:
"My deepest condolences to Fidel Castro's family and the Cuban people during this time.
While there are many disagreements between our countries, President Castro was a recognized world leader who was dedicated to the Cuban people.
