Cuba Marks 59th Anniversary Of Revolution

HAVANA (AP) — Cuba is commemorating the 59th anniversary of the failed uprising against the Moncada military barracks that the island considers the beginning of Fidel Castro’s revolution.

In the past, the July 26 national holiday has sometimes been used to make major announcements, but less so since Raul Castro replaced his older brother as president.

The main celebration traditionally includes artistic performances and a spirited address by a top government official. In recent years Raul Castro has delegated speaking duties to top lieutenants.

Each year it rotates between Cuba’s 15 provinces plus the special island territory of the Island of Youth.

Thursday’s celebration kicked off at sunrise in the far eastern province of Guantanamo, home to the U.S. naval base of the same name.
