Today, 26th July is the National Day of Cuba. It was on this day in 1953, about 160 revolutionaries under the command of Fidel Castro attacked the Moncada Garrison in Santiago of the dictator Batista. Though this attack failed, this started a series of revolutionary activities, which ultimately resulted in the revolution succeeding and Cuba was declared independent from the imperialists on 1st January 1959. The Socialist government under the leadership of Fidel Castro was established. Che Guevara, the Revolutionary leader was one of the Ministers, who later resigned and went to Bolivia to lead the guerrilla struggle, where he was murdered.
On this National Day of Cuba, I convey Revolutionary Greetings to the people of Cuba, who have kept the red flag high, despite the prolonged economic blockade by the imperialist countries led by US.
