The Acts of the Democracies




Coup in Cuba (Batista)

A military coup occurs in Cuba. The elected government of Carlos Prio Socorras is deposed by Fulgencio Batista.

The USA supports the new Cuban dictator who is a particularly brutal ruler. Under his regime, Cuba becomes a haven for drugs, gambling, vice and mobsters. USA business interests benefit.

Freedom of speech is curtailed and hundreds of teachers, lawyers and public officials are fired from their jobs. Death squads torture and kill thousands of "communists".
