      This year we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the opening of the
      mass struggle that led to the victory of the Cuban Revolution. On July
      26, 1953, some 160 men and women, led by Fidel Castro and Abel
      Santamaria, launched attacks on the Moncada army barracks in Santiago de Cuba and the nearby Bayamo garrison. The attacks failed and dozens of
      the rebels were murdered after capture and horrible torture, or were
      jailed. But the action paved the way for a revolutionary war led by the
      July 26 Movement, culminating in a popular insurrection that toppled the US-supported Batista dictatorship on January 1, 1959.

      Cuban workers and farmers took power out of the hands of the wealthy
      elite and its US imperialist backers, established a government of their
      own, and began to transform society for the benefit of the vast
      majority. For more than five decades, the Cuban people have defended
      their socialist revolution against the economic and political war, and
      other attacks, by eleven successive US Administrations.

      Join us to celebrate and to hear what the Cuban Revolution means
      today and why it remains an example for working people – and all
      oppressed and exploited humanity – around the world, including here in
      the United States.
