Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves will lead a five-member delegation to Cuba to attend the ceremony to mark the 60th anniversary of the attack on the Moncado barracks, an important event in the Cuban revolution.

The other members of the delegation are Minister of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Douglas Slater, journalist Duggie “Nose” Joseph, Marlon Joseph, and the Unity Labour Party’s East Kingstown custodian, Luke Browne.

On July 26, 1953, Cuba’s eastern province of Santiago de Cuba became the setting for the first revolt of the movement that would topple Fulgencio Batista’s regime less than six years later, the Havana Times says.

A number of heads of state from the region, most notably from the Left-leaning bloc, headed by Venezuela, are expected to attend the ceremonies planned for Cuba’s “National Rebellion Day”, the publication further reported.

The ceremonies are to be held in the former Moncada Barrack headquarters and presided over by President Raul Castro.

  1. WHAT A DISGRACE TO CELEBRATE A COMMUNIST REVOLUTION IN CUBA.

    I JUST HOPE THAT WE THE VINCENTIAN PEOPLE ARE NOT PAYING FOR THIS TRIP. PAY FOR IT YOURSELVES, YOU MAY BE MARXISTS BUT WE THE PEOPLE ARE NOT.

    ALL THE MARXIST AND COMMUNIST SCUM FROM THE CARIBBEAN AND THE REST OF THE WORLD WILL BE THERE, SO YOU FEEL AT HOME.

    PAYING THE CUBANS WAGES AT THE AIRPORT CONSTRUCTION, WHEN WE WERE LIED TO THAT THE VENEZUELANS WERE PAYING THEM, PAYING THESE WAGES HAS ADDED TO THE BANKRUPTING OF SVG.

    ALL THAT MONEY THAT WE HAVE FORKED OUT HAS ENDED UP IN CUBA, VINCENTIANS HAVE NO JOBS AND OLD AND YOUNG ARE STARVING.

    THEN THIS MAN AND DELEGATION HAVE THE AUDACITY TO CELEBRATE IN CUBA A COMMUNIST UPRISING.

    INSTEAD OF RUNNING AROUND ALL THESE SCUM COUNTRIES, GET YOUR ARSE IN GEAR AND GO TO CANADA, A COUNTRY THAT VINCENTIANS RESPECT.
