Playa Giron, Cuba, Apr 19 (Prensa Latina) Cuba celebrated here on Monday the 60th anniversary of the military victory at Playa Giron over an invading mercenary force of 1,500 men equipped, trained and financed by the US government.
During the ceremony, floral wreaths were placed at the obelisk evoking the 156 Cuban martyrs of those unforgettable Giron combats, representing the people, Army General Raul Castro, President Miguel Diaz-Canel, and the Councils of State and Ministers.

The main speech corresponded to the secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in the municipality of Cienaga de Zapata, Bienvenido Roig, who stressed that the heroes of such remarkable deed, 'reborn in the new generations,' will never be in the oblivion.

'Our heroic people face challenges caused by the genocidal US blockade policy against Cuba, the world economic situation and the Covid-19 pandemic, but they will come out ahead with unity and the willingness to defend the socialist homeland,' he noted.

The ceremony was held in the outdoor areas of the local museum, a facility that shows the poor living conditions of the local inhabitants previous 1959, the progress achieved in these six decades and abundant material on the failed landing of US mercenaries.
