The president tweeted that the farmers’ loyalty to the Revolution, which gave them lands and made them actors of social transformations, reaffirms the country’s confidence in its future.

The history of Cuban farmers is the history of the Revolution: freedom fighters, the Rebel Army, the Agrarian Reform, Fidel Castro, the militias, members of the National Association of Small Farmers (ANAP), and members of cooperatives, Diaz-Canel wrote on his Twitter account.

Cuba is celebrating the 62nd Anniversary of the enactment of the first Agrarian Reform Act and the six decades of ANAP.

One of the biggest problems in the country before 1959 was the ownership of land, as the best soil was in the hands of foreign companies, including firms from the United States.

Among the first measures taken by the revolutionary government was delivering the property of the land to farmers, thus vindicating their struggles and figures such as Niceto Perez, one of the leaders of the sector, who was assassinated on May 17, 1946.
