The 62nd Anniversary of Cuban Revolution was celebrated in Cuba on 26th July 2015.

Santiago De Cuba, Jul 26 Cuba marked the anniversary of Fidel Castro’s first armed uprising 62 years ago today with calls for an end to the US embargo and the return of the US naval base at Guantanamo.

The ceremony — attended by Cuban president Raul Castro and some 10,000 of the country’s ruling elite and their guests but not by the frail 88-year-old Fidel — was the first since the restoration of relations with the United States.

“Now begins a long and complex road toward the normalisation of bilateral relations, which includes, among other things, the end of the blockade and the return of the Guantanamo naval base,” said Jose Ramon Machado Ventura, the number two of Cuba’s communist party.
