The Partido Komunista ng Pilipinas (PKP-1930, the Philippine Communist Party) salutes the Partido Comunista de Cuba (PCC), and the government and people of the Republic of Cuba, on today's 69th Anniversary of the Coordinated Assaults on the Moncada Garrison in Santiago de Cuba and the Céspedes Barracks in Bayamo. These military actions which were planned and undertaken by a group of revolutionaries led by Fidel and Raul Castro, marked the start of the Cuban Revolution, which eventually toppled the US-propped Fulgencio Batista dictatorship in January 1959.
On this occasion, we reiterate our strong condemnation of Biden's continuation of the immoral and criminal US blockade which is in defiance of United Nations General Assembly resolutions, and which for more than 60 years have caused so much suffering to the Cuban people. We demand an immediate end to Biden's instigation of adventurist actions by mercenary groups against Cuba and its people. We reiterate our strong and abiding solidarity with the Partido Comunista de Cuba, with the government and people of Cuba, in the struggle against imperialist intervention and interference.
As we mark today's 69th Anniversary of the Assaults on the Moncada Garrison and the Cespedes Barracks, we pledge to step up our proletarian internationalist efforts in defense of Cuban socialism, sovereignty and territorial integrity –- through demands for an end to the US blockade against Cuba, for the
return to Cuban sovereignty of the Guantanamo naval base, and for an end to the USA's “regime change” plots against Cuba.
Long live the Partido Comunista de Cuba !
Long live the Cuban Revolution !
Long live proletarian internationalism !
With communist greetings,
ANTONIO E. PARIS
