Moncada Barracks - 1953
The Moncada Barracks of Batista
have been converted into School City 26 of July
Cuba and its citizens throughout the world celebrate today the 60th anniversary of the attack to the Moncada barracks in Santiago de Cuba on July 26, 1953, under the leadership of a young Fidel Castro.
The Cuban dictator, Fulgencio Batista, who had always received very strong military support from the U.S. goverment to the north, did not know that the 26th marked the beginning of the end for his corrupt capitalist regime. Final victory would dawn on January 1, 1959. The tyrant's supporters would then flee to Miami, Florida, where they live today in ignominy in that cesspool of a city. Criminals run Miami. They learned that from Batista.
Eternal glory and honor to the many martyrs who fell on that day, so that Cuba could be free. They will never be forgotten and they live forever in the glorious pages of Cuban history.
Cubans now run the island and control their own destiny. Greedy and corrupt capitalist ideologies have been booted out from their little paradise. For those who do not know Cuban history, when Christopher Columbus set foot on Cuban soil for the first time, he exclaimed: “This is the most beautiful land that man has ever seen.”
