Where: 1604 Bloor Street West, Toronto (1 block west of Dundas West Subway Station)

* Music, dance, cash bar, raffle, door prize

On July 26, 1953, 135 young revolutionaries led by Fidel Castro boldly assaulted the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba, the country's second-largest military fortress, while two smaller groups led by Abel Santamaria and Raúl Castro targeted important adjacent buildings. Though the Moncada Barracks did not fall, the revolutionary action was highly significant. It signalled the future battles that were to triumph in 1959 when the Cuban people celebrated the defeat of Fulgencio Batista's brutal dictatorship. As Fidel declared later, "Moncada taught us to turn setbacks into victories."

Organized by: Canadian-Cuban Friendship Association Toronto, Juan Gualberto Gomez Association of Cubans in Toronto, Latin American and Caribbean Solidarity Network, Friends of Cuba against the US Blockade, Toronto Forum on Cuba | Facebook event
