President Maduro celebrates 67 years of Cuban rebellion

President Nicolás Maduro sent a message through his twitter account congratulating the Cuban people for their 67 years of rebellion and dignity against the imperial pretenses:

“I celebrate with the brotherly Cuban people 67 years of rebellion and dignity in the face of imperial pretensions. The Assault on the Moncada Barracks marked the beginning of the struggle for freedom and sovereignty of the Cuban Revolution that inspires the peoples of our America. Long live Fidel!” Said Maduro.

The events that occurred in Cuba on July 26, 1953 marked the path of struggle and the construction of a fairer society, said the Cuban Chancellor, Bruno Rodríguez, as he commemorated today the Day of National Rebellion, according to Prensa Latina.

The head of diplomacy of the Caribbean nation thus recalled the events that took place 67 years ago, when a hundred fighters commanded by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, assaulted the Moncada barracks, the second military garrison, in Santiago de Cuba. of the country at that time; and to the Carlos Manuel de Céspedes fortress, in Bayamo.

The action was aimed at awakening the Cuban people to fight against the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, who in March 1952 assumed power through a coup d’etat: “Only the Revolution could end the imperialist domination and social exclusion in Cuba”, said Rodríguez on his Twitter account.

The head of Foreign Relations assured that diplomats from the island have daily joined this “endeavor and commitment”.

Cuba commemorates this July 26, 2020 for the first time, the Day of National Rebellion, without the traditional act that since 1959 has been carried out to pay tribute to the heroes and martyrs of that feat.

It is noteworthy that this date is not overlooked, and Cubans celebrate from their homes, workplaces and social networks with signs of patriotism and the will to fight the present and future challenges.
