ALBA Secretary highlights importance of July 26 in Cuba

Caracas, Jul 26 (Prensa Latina) The secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Agreement, Sacha Llorenti, on Monday highligted the importance of the July 26 celebrations in Cuba.

In a message on Twitter, the maximum representative of the regional entity pointed out that this date marks a transcendental milestone in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean, ‘when a group of men first stormed the barracks to then take the sky by storm. His living example guides our steps to Gloria a Fidel!’.

Cuba on Monday celebrates National Rebelliousness, a date that recalls me that on July 26, 1953, young men stormed the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes barracks in eastern Cuba.

Although the actions against Fulgencio Batista’s dictatorship (1952-1958) did not achieve their objectives, researchers agree in pointing out the political transcendence of the event.

The Cuban people celebrate this date under the slogan My Moncada is today, a call to defend the socialist project from home, work or social networks in the era of the soft coup against Cuba.
