THE CUBAN REVOLUTION
The revolution was led by Fidel Castro in 1959. It finished with the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista and the Democratic Republic of Cuba was created. Castro promoted a pro-communist regime with a communist party, a planned economy and strict social control.
From Cuba, communism was spread over Latin America and Ernesto Che Guevara oversaw that mission. The United States became alarmed with the spread of communist regimes so Cuban invasion was organized from Bahia Cochinos in 1961 although it failed. Next decision was the economic blockade of Cuba which has been maintained so far.
