Crucial moment of Cuban Revolution remembered


Crucial moment of Cuban Revolution remembered

Havana, Dec 18 (Prensa Latina) The 66th Anniversary of one of the most critical and hopeful moments in the Cuban Revolution, the Cinco Palmas meeting, was remembered in Cuba on Saturday as an expression of resistance and confidence in victory.

At midnight on December 18, 1956, Fidel and Raúl Castro and a few members of the expedition met at that point in the Sierra Maestra mountain range, in eastern Cuba, 16 days after the hazardous landing of the Granma Yacht.

During that period, the revolutionaries had suffered a costly setback in Alegría de Pío; were dispersed and persecuted by the troops of the Fulgencio Batista regime (1952-1958). They had only seven rifles, but despite everything, Fidel Castro stated a prophetic phrase: Now we do win the war.”

On Sunday, President Miguel Díaz-Canel assured on his Twitter account that this expression from the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution “expresses the irreducible faith in the victory of the revolutionaries, always victors

of the impossible.”

According to Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, that meeting “strengthened the spirit of resistance, unity, and victory of our combatants, giving continuity to the revolutionary process.”

For his part, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez tweeted that from that historic meeting “we inherited the revolutionary optimism, the spirit of resistance and the certainty of victory, with which the Cuban people defend their Revolution and build every day a humanist and social justice.”
