desfile-2eneHavana, Cuba.-Cuba will never bow to the pressures and threats of the USA, confirmed today thousands of Cubans who marched through the mythical Plaza, José Martí, to celebrate the 58th anniversary of the Triumph of the Revolution.

‘We are here with our president Raúl Castro to ratify the commitment to defend the achievements of the Socialist Revolution and to pay tribute once again to the historic leader, Fidel Castro,’ said to Prensa Latina Patricia González, a first-year medical student.

Faced with the presence of the head of state, thousands of men and women from the capital and the Mayabeque and Artemisa provinces marched on the stage where, on several occasions, the unconquered Commander-in-Chief demanded an end to the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed by the United States on The island for more than 50 years.

In the parade, took part students from the Camilo Cienfuegos military schools of this city, which confirmed their willingness to watch over the country’s sovereignty.

The march was opened by about 128 horse riders in homage to the mambí army of Cuban heroes such as Antonio Maceo, José Martí, Máximo Gómez, Calixto García.

The parade on Monday, January 2, was scheduled for December 2, but it was postponed due to the death of Fidel Castro on November 25 and the national mourning decree.
