Some 30 independent syndicalists, young anarchists and
sympathizers, celebrated for the first time in Cuba,
after the arrival of Castro to the power the Spanish
Social Revolution Anniversay.

The event took place in the capital neighbourhood of
La Víbora, in the home of one of the comrades who called
for this commemoration. One of the young men present at
this event, who declined to identify himself for security
reasons, declared through a phone call:
“the hour is come to make reborn the anarchist ideal in
Cuba, condemned to hibernate for more than 40 years
because of castrist authoritarism”.

In Cuba, the anarchist ideas had a protagonist role in
the proletariat organisation and the struggle during
the colonial period and during the first half of last century,
with active participation in the downfall of the
Machado (the 33rd year Revolution) and Batista dictatorships.
When taking the power Castro dismantled the anarchist associations
and condemned to prison or to exile the most well known
activists from the Cuban anarchist movement, the same that
is reborn from it's ashes at the pick of the anti-authoritarian
protests from the last years who arose and fought from Génova,
Italy to Salonic, Greece.
