Havana, Jul 16 – Venezuelan Ambassador to Havana, Edgardo Ramirez stated today the attacks to Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes barracks in 1953 in Cuba is an example of rebellion against acts of injustice.
“It is an example of rebellion, of uprising when it is appropriate against dictatorships, acts of injustice and governments which are subordinated to the empire (the United States)”, the diplomat told Prensa Latina in allusion to this day known as the Day of National Rebellion.
“The celebrations for those actions, which reach their 60th anniversary this July 26, have great meaning”, said Ramirez after the inauguration of a documentary exhibition on the subject at the headquarters of the National Archives.
