There is Another Way


The Trinidad and Tobago Friends of Cuba (TTFC) pledges it continued support and solidarity with the Cuban people as they celebrate the 56th anniversary (19th April) of the heroic victory at the Bay of Pigs, where CIA backed insurgents attempted to re-impose the social and economic order which was successfully dispatched by Castro and the 26th of July Movement two years earlier. This important victory demonstrated that the Cuban Revolution could not only improve the lives of ordinary Cubans, but just as importantly, it could defend itself against those reactionary forces whose narrow interests were not beneficial to the vast majority of the Cuban people. The significance of the victory at the Bay of Pigs is that it showed that resistance is not futile, but necessary in the face of social, economic and political injustice. As we enter a new cycle of fascism in Europe, and in particular the United States, the lessons of the Cuban Revolution and its successful defense in April 1961 take on added significance for those seeking social justice and freedom everywhere.  We, the members of the TTFC, therefore congratulate and continue to give solidarity to the Cuban people at this time, as they successfully inspire progressive movements everywhere; demonstrating throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia and the Horn of Africa that there is a better way.
