The 20th anniversary of Cuba’s ‘El Maleconazo’

It was twenty years ago today on a hot August day in 1994 when Cuba's Castro dictatorship found itself for perhaps the very first time in its dictatorial career about to lose control of the people. Sparks were flying all over the powder keg that is the island of Cuba and if they did not act fast, the decades of oppression, torture, and murder they invested into cementing themselves into power were about to be lost.

Unfortunately, the glimmer of hope that the Cuban people would finally free themselves from the bloody tyranny of the Castro mafia were as short lived as the sparks that failed to light that powder keg.

Photographs of that fateful day from The Real Cuba:

    Castro should have renamed El Malecon "Bill Clinton Ave".

  • Gallardo

    This took place 3/4 years too late. This should have happened in unison with Tiananmen Square, the execution of General Ochoa, the fall of the Eastern Bloc, the collapse of the USSR, and under the Reagan/Bush administration that contributed to it all.

    By the time this uprising took place there was another shitty Democrat in power granting communists favors and running at their demands; therefore, Castro was once again more than comfortable releasing the pressure valve in Uncle Sam's face and coercing USA. Hell, he even demanded an escaped kid and USA's president ran at his commands (as if the miserable scumbag of Castro wasn't responsible for killing, torturing, robbing, threatening, defrauding, and slandering Americans).
