Statement from the Chargé d'affaires a.i. of the Embassy of Cuba in Austria, Counsellor Sara M. Smith de Castro.

It is an honor to gather in Linz, capital of the State of Upper Austria, to participate in this event, today 26 July, a momentous date for the Cuban history, the Day of the National Rebellion. The assault of Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Céspedes Garrisons 65 years ago resumed the Cuban liberating and independence campaign that begun on 10 October 1868, 150 years ago. 26 July 1953 marked the beginning of the revolutionary process that would lead - five years, five months and five days later - to the Triumph of the Cuban Revolution on 1 January 1959.
