Cuban President Raul Castro (R) and Venezuelan Nicolas Maduro (C) speak with Santa Lucia President Kenny Anthony (L) on July 26, 2013 during celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of Moncada barrack attack in Santiago de Cuba. Cuba on Friday launched 60th anniversary celebrations of ex-leader Fidel Castro's Moncada Barracks assault -- widely seen as the start to the country's communist revolution. The events, led by current President Raul Castro, kicked off in the courtyard of the former Moncada Garrison, where in 1953, a young Fidel Castro and more than 100 rebels attempted to overthrow the dictator Fulgencio Batista. The bid was unsuccessful, but Castro eventually toppled Batista in 1959, launching the Americas' only communist regime, which he ruled for five decades before stepping aside for health reasons in favour of his brother.
