Cuba Commemorates July 26 with Regional Leaders
Santiago de Cuba, Jul 26 (Prensa Latina) Cuba celebrates the National Rebellion Day with the attendance of Heads of State and Government from Latin America and the Caribbean in the 60th anniversary of the assault to the Moncada Barracks, then headed by Fidel Castro. The most Caribbean of the Cuban provincial capitals is renovated to receive the Presidents and other visitors.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro arrived Thursday, with members of his Cabinet, leaders of the Venezuelan United Socialist Party of Venezuela, and leaders from other political organizations supporting the Bolivarian process.
Maduro regarded the insurrection on July 26, 1953 as a milestone, and said that Fidel Castro, after 60 years, is "keeping his headlight."
Other regional leaders, such as Uruguayan President Jose Mujica, Baldwin Spencer, Prime Minister of Antigua and Barbuda, Ralph Gonsalves, Prime Minister of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and Roosevelt Skerrit, Prime Minister of Dominica, are also attending and participating.
The Moncada, now a school city for children, will be the host for the central activity for the ephemerides, headed by Cuban President Raul Castro, who will accompany the visitors in a tour by the museum reminding the assault, and the Cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, where the remains of National Hero Jose Marti are resting.
