“The Cuban nation has died, it was murdered”

Far too little attention is given to the true story of the Bay of Pigs invasion, the men who risked and sacrificed their lives in the hope of liberating their homeland, and the international repercussions of that failure. I urge you to watch this interview with Bay of Pig veterans Javier Souto and Jose Regalado.

Almost every word spoken during this hour and half plus video is memorable, inspiring, and heartbreaking.

On the executions: “We could stay here the whole day reciting names.”

On the outcome of the revolution: “The Cuban nation has died, it was murdered.”

On Castro’s international campaigns and influence: “It is amazing what the little island of Cuba... has cost the world.”

On the resistance: “The Cuban people have never stopped working against the Castro regime.”

On international reaction: “Everybody has been helping Castro.”

On island Cubans who assisted: “They had nothing to gain, everything to lose. They did it for Cuba.”

Assessing current reality: “It’s not over.”

These men are heroes; it is a privilege to listen to their words. Tissue warning.
