Military review for 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs victory and the proclamation of the socialist nature of the Cuban Revolution

IN the presence of General of the Army Raúl Castro, the military review and popular parade marking the 50th anniversary of the proclamation of the socialist nature of the Cuban Revolution and the military victory of the Bay of Pigs is underway.

The event with which Cuba is celebrating its half century of socialism opened with a salute to the participating troops by Army Corps General Alvaro López Miera, deputy minister of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR).

Children, young people and veterans took part in a symbolic enactment recalling historical achievements of the Cuban people, preceding the review of FAR troops and combat weapons

The event ends with a march by tens of thousands of young people, symbols of the new generations of Cubans and a guarantee of the continuity of the Revolution.

Delegates to the 6th Congress of the Communists Party of Cuba, which begins this Saturday in the capital’s International Conference Center, are present at the parade.
