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.
