PSL Forum and discussion

The Birth of the Cuban Revolution and
the 1953 assault on the Moncada Barracks
Friday, July 23, 7pm

Some historians treat the July 26, 1953, Moncada rebellion in Cuba as an impetuous act of 132 idealistic radicals. They see an outnumbered, poorly armed group that decided to attack the barracks of the U.S.-backed Batista regime.

But history shows that a military defeat can sometimes result in a profound political victory. The heroic survivors of that Moncada attack—including Fidel Castro and other future leaders of the Cuban Revolution—went on to form the July 26th Movement. On January 1, 1959, they victoriously rode into Havana, toppling the hated U.S.-backed dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.
Join us for a commemoration of the Moncada rebellion and celebrate the gains of the Cuban people in a socialist society.
