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.
