As the years went on, things went for the worse. He remained president of Cuba until 2008 because of his retirement. His brother, Raul Castro, then took over. The people just wanted a better life than the one before.
Like most revolutions, the ride to freedom is a bumpy ride. The people were angry with the dictator. Student protest and all kinds of protests filled the streets of Cuba. Fulgencio Batista had close ties with the United States of America. He encouraged American tourism. Bringing gambling and prostitution to Cuba. Batista came into power in the year of 1933 with his military. From this time to 1940 he was a dictator until he officially became president. He would later go on to losing the election in 1944, surprisingly he peacefully handed down the power to his winning opponent. He didn’t leave yet, Batista ran for president in 1951 again and came in last place. He wasn’t happy about the results so he staged his second coup and regained his power. He faced many protest and revolutions in 1952. Which in one of those he silenced the revolution of Fidel Castro. He ran another election but him being the only one running, he automatically won.
Fidel Castro was not alright with this. Castro, with the help of others gained an army to compete with the one of Batista’s. Castro had just about everyone in Cuba on his side. He gained more and more followers by winning small battles against Batista’s military. Leading up the July 26th Movement. People were getting ready for a bloody battle. But, surprisingly it wasn't, Batista had already fled and the head of the military ordered his army to not fire at the rebels. The rebels ended up winning the revolution.
There were a lot of factors that partook in this revolution. The most important ones were the small battles that gained Castro followers. It wasn’t a fast revolution, but it was sure to happen. Another key event, was the July 26th Movement. That was the final battle needed to win the revolution. It was easier than expected it would be, Castro’s army was ready for whatever Batista threw at them.
Although things changed for the good them at the moment, Cuba is not doing so good right now. Castro first made changes for good causes and tried to make everything fair for the Cuban people. But, he later changed to communism. Communism is an amazing theory on paper but its a disaster in reality. He cut all connections from the US and allied with the USSR during the Cold War. Even now people are still fleeing Cuba to Florida. Florida holds the biggest Cuban communities in the US.
The Cuban Revolution in my opinion a fail. I think they...
