This Friday, [July 26, 2019] in the framework of the XXV Sao Paolo Forum, members of the National Directorate of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) celebrated the 66th anniversary of the July Rebellion “Assault on the Moncada Barracks”.
In this sense, the PSUV member, Julio Chávez exalted the role of the Cuban Revolution for the promotion and consolidation of Bolivarian and libertarian thinking in Latin America and the world.
“The Cuban revolution became a luminous beacon for all humanity, for all the peoples of Latin America and the world that today wage a tenacious struggle against the hegemonic, imperialist stance of the United States of America,” said Julio Chavez.
Similarly, Julio Chavez said that although the July Rebellion was considered a military failure, it served as the beginning of a struggle that helped the Cuban people achieve their freedom and stability in the country.
“From the revolutionary forces they recognize and thank Cuba’s contributions, supporting the consolidation of the Bolivarian Revolution, to social justice, to the need for these territories to be declared of peace,” said the member of the red awning.
For his part, the member of the National Bureau of the Union of Young Communists of Cuba, Rosa Montero recalled that despite the latent threats of the United States Government to overcome revolutionary thinking, Cuban youth will continue to fight for their ideals driven by Comandante Fidel Castro.
“They intend to suffocate us economically, intensify their campaign of contempt against the Cuban Revolution. All this reaffirms the challenges of Cuban youth. We will continue working, defending the revolution, ”said Rosa Montero.
On July 26, 1953, more than a hundred young people, led by the leader of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro, staged a military action against the dictator Fulgencio Batista (1952-1959). Although the event concluded with the defeat of the rebels, this event was an impulse of the revolutionary struggle that triumphed five and a half years later.
