However, Fidel Castro’s ideology during his rise to power was being primarily nationalist , with a turn towards communism by the end of the Cuban revolution. Castro said that he wanted to elevate the standards of the Cuban people and this is what he did and why people joined him. Fidel Castro’s rise to power began on the 26th July of 1953, also known as the ‘July movement’ where Castro along with other rebels tried to "capture the Moncada army barracks in downtown Santiago de Cuba.”. Its aim was to take over this military site but this attempt failed.

Another key reason for wanting war came from a letter that the Spanish Foreign Minister, Dupuy de Lome, had written to his friend in Cuba. In the letter Lome had said the President Mckinley was a “low, coarse politician.” This letter was somehow stolen and published in the New York Journal.

Police officers are underpaid, with a starting salary of less than $350 a month, and are expected to buy their own equipment, even bullets. There is also is very little respect for the police force (Thompson Web). It is also stated that “Mexico’s… federal police remain spread thin” in the drug war, causing any gains to be ineffective” (Althaus Web).

During the revolution, Guevara served as his second lieutenant, coordinating the tactics of the revolutionaries. His Guerrilla warfare tactics would prove to be very successful, as it enabled a much smaller force (Numbered In the hundreds) to defeat Batista’s army. As a result of the key role that Guevara played during the revolution, Castro appointed Guevara as his Minister of Industry, where he implemented many reforms that greatly improved Cuba’s Schooling system.

The campaign focused on teaching the lower-class citizens how to read and write by constructing new schools and training teachers.

Immediately, the line is followed by "Let it sink back in the ocean," a statement of contempt. Compared to the version sang in the film, the original text was far less watered down, “Puerto Rico, you ugly island, Island of tropic diseases. Always the hurricanes blowing, Always the population growing, and the money owing, and the babies crying, and the bullets flying.” FIND A
