Cuba celebrates 63 years of socialist proclamation.

Cuba celebrates today the 63rd anniversary of the proclamation of the socialist character of its Revolution.

Before the crowd gathered near the Cristobal Colon Cemetery, in Havana, Cuba's maximum leader, Fidel Castro, expressed: this is the socialist and democratic revolution of the humble, with the humble and for the humble.

The missive, published by the coalition of organizations against the blockade Alliance for Commitment and Respect for Cuba (Acere), conveys the disappointment for "your inaction, lack of courage and sensitivity to undo the drastic and unfounded executive measures imposed by your predecessor (Donald Trump)".
