The 26th of July Movement was a Cuban vanguard revolutionary organization and later a political party led by Communist Fidel Castro.
The movement that changed my life commemorates its 26 July 1953 attack on the army barracks on Santiago de Cuba in an attempt to start the overthrowing of the dictator Fulgencio Batista. This is considered one of the most important organizations during the Cuban Revolution. At the end of 1956, Castro established a guerrilla base in the Sierra Maestra. This base defeated the troops of Batista.
Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August 13, 1926, near Birán, Cuba, and died on November 25, 2016, in Cuba. The Communist ruthless dictator transformed my country into the first Russian satellite state in the Western Hemisphere.
Castro became a symbol of the communist revolution in Latin America. He held the title of premier until 1976 and then began a long tenure as president of the Council of State and the Council of Ministers. He eventually handed over provisional power in July 2006 because of health problems and formally relinquished the presidency in February 2008 to his brother Raul, who then turned over the reins to his understudy. ‘The Cuban Revolution has not provided the necessary services for the people of Cuba, and lately, folks are taking their grievances to the streets protesting and hoping that soon, their day will come.
Some seven decades later here comes the news Cuban Revolution. Today’s July 26 date in history is for Castro what January 6 is for Trump. A failed insurrection and an attempt to overthrow the government. Castro was jailed, but later released from prison, but will the DOJ lock Trump up and throw away the key? Castro was fighting a ruthless dictator. Trump was fighting Democracy. They're both war criminals in his own country.
Meanwhile, the people of Cuba are demanding Libertad, but the fact is that most don’t know what it is or how it feels and none know what it is like to live in a democracy. Unfortunately only the elderly Cubans may remember because most have never experienced it.
The Cubans living here, who claim they do not support President Biden but are asking for USA intervention after 6 months his six months in office, but never got any support during Trump’s four years in control. because Russia supports Cuba and Trump has always done what Putin wants.
Some say the protesters in Miami should be in Cuba helping to free their people from seeking liberty. Sure there are no guns there but rocks and determination have toppled other Communist regimes. There's more of them than the police. When you're outnumbered the police will run and change clothes. Freedom is never free and requires a lot of blood sweat and tears to overcome the fear and achieve a necessary outcome.
