Cuban representatives in Angola celebrated today the 70th anniversary of the assault on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes garrisons, a revolutionary milestone in the contemporary history of their country.

Ambassador Esther Armenteros headed the political-cultural event, whose music and dance shows included the participation of an artistic brigade of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA).

The singers, dancers and musicians of the FAA ensemble evoked the legacy of the Caribbean country’s National Hero, Jose Marti, and the courage of the young men who on July 26, 1953, took by assault two military strongholds of Fulgencio Batista’s dictatorship, to fuel the popular struggle that led to the triumph of the Cuban revolution on January 1, 1959.

Those brave men, who went to immolate themselves before de walls of the Moncada barracks, had unwavering faith in the final victory, and by this, avoiding the ideas of Master José Martí die in the year of his centenary, said the director Pedro Jaime Bonilla, of the Antex corporation, at the ceremony

Seventy years after that heroic deed led by Fidel Castro, the island’s collaborators have their Moncada here in ‘the successful and quality fulfillment of the services we provide to this sister nation’, the Cuban public servant assured.

The humanist work of doctors, nurses and other professionals, he said, represents the success of the ideals that inspired the Moncada´s actions in 1953, under the intellectual guidance of José Marti.

Nevertheless, he denounced, the development project of the Cuban people and its Revolution continues under the threat of Yankee imperialism, which seeks to undermine all that has been achieved on the island throughout centuries of struggle for independence and self-determination.
