Diaz-Canel recalls the proclamation of socialism in Cuba

The president tweeted that on April 16, 1961, the Cuban people “proclaimed their Revolution was socialist before going to defend the homeland in the sands of Bay of Pigs.”

In another tweet, the head of State recalled a fragment of the speech on this event delivered by Historic Leader of the Revolution, Fidel Castro, at the emblematic corner of 23rd Avenue and 12th Street in Havana.

“What imperialists cannot forgive us is that we are here; what imperialists cannot forgive us is our dignity, the integrity, the courage, the ideological firmness, the spirit of sacrifice and the revolutionary spirit of the Cuban people,” he stressed.

The day before the declaration, eight bombers camouflaged with insignia of the Cuban Air Force had left from Nicaragua and simultaneously attacked the military airfields of San Antonio de los Baños and Ciudad Libertad, in the then province of Havana, and the civilian airport of Santiago de Cuba.

The attackers were confronted by the Rebel Army and the National Revolutionary Militias, but killed seven people and wounded fifty.

It was at the funeral rites of the victims that Fidel Castro declared the socialist path of the Cuban revolutionary process amid a crowd that supported, with their rifles raised, the decision to defend the Revolution.
