Shortly after that, there was a revolt within the party under General Evaristo Estanoz and here again the U.S government intervened by sending troops to back President Jose Miguel and also to protect their business interest. In 1925, Gerardo Machado y Morales came into power and began working towards ending the Platt Amendment which obviously posed a threat to the U.S business interests, hence, they responded diplomatically by sending envois to negotiate with Gerardo which he refused thereby prompting the U.S to manipulate his replacement and that gave rise to Carlos Manuel de Cespedes but was overthrown in a very short time through a revolt by Fulgencio Batista but, he served under Roma Grau San Martin

Introduction The Cuban revolution took place in 26th July 1953 and ended in 1st January 1959. It was caused by overthrowing the president at that time, Fulgencio Batista. It started when Fidel Castro led a group of rebels against the president of Cuba Fulgencio Batista. At first it started with a small group of supporters, then the group of rebels started to expand and raise awareness when Fidel went on a Propaganda tour, which then turned into a civil revolution. The group of rebels were unsatisfied with their dictator, and demanded freedom which slowly caused Cuba to be a communist country.
The Spanish then went on to kill and capture Incan soldiers and Atahualpa probably realised then that the Spanish were after gold and silver and were not there for peace. Atahualpa actually offered them rooms full of gold and silver as a ransom for them to let him go but sadly he was never granted his freedom and was eventually killed on August 29, 1533 (The Fall of the Inca Empire). After taking control of the city Cajamarca the Spanish went on to capture the capital, Cusco and there they picked Atahualpa's brother as the new Sapa Inca giving them a puppet that they could control to their will. The Spanish conquest was the breaking point for the empire because it completely destroyed the empire pushing it to its fall. However, there was still one factor that ruined the Inca empire but didn’t push it because it was a civil war between two brothers within the

He called himself a president because he was elected, but he was really a communist leader that gradually gained more power.
This issue led to six rebellions. Swift wrote “all true believers shall break their eggs at the most convenient end” . In the second book of Gulliver’s Travels, Swift takes a shot at the British judiciary system and thus the politics of the society. He puts the stress on the corruption that occurs way too often. The third book is a critic of science with a special mention of the Royal Society members.
He succeeded Siraj-Ud-Daulah as the eighth Nawab of Bengal, and the first of the Najafi dynasty after deceiving Nawab Siraj-Ud-Daulah and surrendering his army in battle field against Robert Clive. His rule is widely considered the start of British rule in India and was a key step in eventual British domination of the country. His greed of becoming Nawab of Bengal, led him to make a secret pact with Robert Clive and surrender & slaughter of Army of Bengal in Battle of Plassey, without fighting, which led to foundation of British rule in India. For this act of treachery, he has been infamously called Gaddar-e-Abrar. Gaddar means a traitor & Abrar means faith in Urdu.
This struggle led to the proclamation of the Third estate as “Assemblée Nationale” (National Assembly) and the octroiement to vote the tax in the 17th of June 1789. Secondly, the 14th of July 1789 marked a turning point in the history of France: “la prise de la Bastille”. The storming of the Bastille symbolized the end of the "absolute" monarchy and intervention of the population in French political life. This led to the end of royalty and the proclamation of France as a republic in 1792 and to the beheading of Louis XVI in 1793 (Opello & Rosow, 1999, p.105). After the storming of the Bastille, the common will wanted to eliminate all social distinctions.
In 1481, the Spanish Inquisition commenced with the permission of Pope Sixtus IV and all non-Catholics within the Spanish empire were to be expelled or to be “put to the question” (tortured until they renounced their previous faith). With the re-founding of Manila in 1571, the Philippines became subject to the King of Spain and the Archbishop of New Galicia (Mexico) became the Grand Inquisitor of the Faithful in Mexico and the Philippines. In 1595, the newly appointed Archbishop of Manila became the Inquisitor-General of the Spanish East Indies (i.e.,the Philippines, Guam, and Micronesia) and until 1898, the Spanish Inquisition was active against Protestants, Buddhists, Hindus and Muslims. As was the case in Latin America and Africa, forced conversions were not uncommon and any attempt not to submit to the authority of the Roman Catholic Church was seen as both rebellion against the Pope and sedition against the Spanish Crown, which was punishable by
According to Lienbmann (2012) natives attributed the revolt to “Satan”, credit of planning and making it happen is given to Po’pay and many of the leaders and planners of the rebellion who were ‘half-breeds’, like the mestizos and coyotes, and indios ladinos (p. 55). Because some tribes were strongly dominated by the Spanish and fear, these revolt leaders made promises of protection to the tribes and sometimes threatened and forced tribes to adhere to the rebellion. Once the had enough Native warriors to fight the Spanish, they attacked by surprise before the Spaniards had time to prepare for the attack. The Pueblo Indians who began were at north of Santa Fe, followed that same day by the others surrounding the capital. The revolt lasted over ten days.
