Cuban Revolution 65th Anniversary: Cuban Embassy Nigeria Celebrates

The Cuban Embassy in Nigeria, will today, roll out rums, cigar and the best of cobita to reflect with friends of Nigerian-Cuban Solidarity Groups and members of the diplomatic corp.
Cuban Revolution came to a decisive head on January 1st, 1959, when the rebellious peoples army led by Fidel Castro, marched into Havana at the fleeing heels of the USA backed dictator, Fulgencio Batista.
It is, incredibly, the longest existing political revolution in the modern world, followed by the American, French, and Russian revolts, which. were replaced by USA tele-guided  democracies.
Challenges:Most of the bearded, fatigue-wearing rebels that rolled into Havana from the countryside in the first days of 1959 are dead.
Alive from the original group are rebels Raul Castro, 92, and Ramiro Valdes, 91.
Younger Cubans, are under immense pressure to abandon the revolution and yield to the growing wave of USA styled democracy.
This pressure is becoming daily a burden as daily basic food items are drying off the shelves of supermarkets in Havana, due to the sustained economic blockade by USA.These illegal blockade had been adjudged illegal, inhuman and against international law by multiple UN General Assembly resolutions but the USA has refused to honor any of such resolutions calling on the blockade to be lifted. USA regularly punish any nation that dares trade with Cuba except for few like
  Venezuela and occasionally China.
Apart from these embargoes by the USA, another challenge of the Cuban Revolution, was the failure of the revolution to spread throughout 3rd World countries, especially in Africa and Latin America.
The Cuban Revolution is a beacon of light for all of Latin America,” said Ernesto “Che” Guevara, but unfortunately, the light failed to shine in the face of imperialist, neo-colonialist sponsoring of military coups and stooges, masquerading as revolutionary interventions in Africa and Latin America.
The Cuban Revolution is still a struggle. The revolution has reached its 65th anniversary by refusing to succumb to the inhumane economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States since the beginning of the revolution.Today as we join the staff of Cuban Embassy in Nigeria to celebrate, we call on Nigerians, particularly the youths, to deeply reflect on the achievements of the Cuban revolution in the fields of education and medicine.
If a 3rd World country perched on the nose of mighty bully, can eradicate malaria, export medical doctors to aid other nations, what is holding Nigeria, the giant of Africa from replicating same in the African continent?The Cuban Revolution is a great achievement for humanity; this achievement is manifested in the progress of the Cuban people in education, health, culture, science and political participation. The Cuban Revolution is the pride and hope of humanity.
