Young Russians Climb Mountain Summit to Celebrate Cuba's National Rebellion Day

Moscow, July 28 (RHC)-- A group of 16 young Russian solidarity activists climbed a 2600-meter high mountain in the Russian region of Sniagorsk to celebrate July 26th -- National Rebellion Day in Cuba -- which this year marks the 62nd anniversary of the revolutionary attacks on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes barracks by a group of revolutionaries led by then young lawyer Fidel Castro.

The solidarity activists issued a communique, in which they greet the Cuban people on the new anniversary and on the reestablishment of diplomatic relations between Washington and Havana.

In their message, the Russian solidarity activists also take the opportunity to wish good health to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro and President Raúl Castro.

They recall that although the attacks on July 26th, 1953, failed militarily with most revolutionaries captured alive and then brutally tortured and murdered by henchmen of the Batista dictatorship, the action was an unprecedented political and moral victory for the revolutionaries, which earned them the support of the vast majority of the people.

The rebellion that began on July 26th, 1953, brought down the Batista dictatorship five years later.
