On July 26, 1953, a small band of Cubans launched a revolution by storming the Moncada Barracks in the city of Santiago, in Eastern Cuba.

It was a year ago today 7/11 that Cubans took to the streets to peacefully protest against the Communist government's repression.

The U.S. State Department has just imposed visa restrictions against 28 Cuban officials that it said were implicated in a crackdown on largely peaceful protests in Cuba one year ago.
