Today March 13 marks the 64th anniversary of the Assault on the Presidential Palace in Cuba. This heroic act was an armed action that occurred on March 13, 1957, in Havana, Cuba, carried out by young people from the Revolutionary Directorate, which was one of the forces fighting against the tyranny of Fulgencio Batista. The purpose of the assailants was to disconcert the regime with the execution of the dictator Fulgencio Batista, deliver the weapons of the garrison to the people summoned through the radio station Radio Reloj and take other points of the city such as the Maestre de la Policia Barracks - occupy its strong arsenal- and so on other police stations and barracks until dominating the capital.
