Fidel

FIDEL CASTRO

     Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz nació el 13 de agosto de 1926 en la ciudad de Birán. Fue un militar, revolucionario, estadista y político cubano. Durante sus estudios de derecho se inició en la lucha armada contra las dictaduras de América del sur. Por eso, fue a Colombia para combatir y participó en el intento de levantamiento en República Dominicana en 1947. Se presentó en el parlamento para el partido ortodoxo pero el golpe de Estado del general Fulgencio Batista en 1952, que destituyó al gobierno de Carlos Prío Socarrás, anuló las elecciones. Fidel Castro expresó su oposición provocando una reacción armada y estuvo encarcelado durante unos meses.
     Después, se exilió en México y cuando estaba allí, encontró a Ernesto Guevara, el Che. En diciembre de 1956, desembarcaron con 80 hombres en Cuba a borde de un yate llamado Granma. Tenían por proyecto destituir la dictadura militar sostenida por Estados Unidos. Después de dos aňos de guerrilla, consiguieron finalmente la huida de Batista. Después, Fidel Castro se instaló en el poder en 1959, designado Primer Ministro por el Presidente Carlos Rivero Aguero. En cuanto al Che, fue designado ministro de Industria. El Gobierno adoptó el marxismo e instauró el primer estado socialista de América. Esto provocó el principio de una ola de emigración política hacia Estados Unidos porque la gente quería huir del gobierno marxista y de su política de abolición de la propriedad privada.
En 1962, tuvo lugar la crisis de los mísiles. En efecto, mísiles nucleares soviéticos estaban dirigidos hacia Estados Unidos desde la isla de Cuba y el gobierno de Estados Unidos no podía aceptar eso ya que la seguridad del país estaba amenazada.
     Más tarde, en 2002, asistimos a una crisis económica y política en Cuba. Los productos de consumo estaban racionados a causa de un embargo y con la instauración en 1962 de la libreta de racionamiento, se produjo una crisis ya que la gente deseaba libertad.
     En 2008, Fidel Castro anunció su retirada del gobierno cubano por motivos de salud y dejó todos sus poderes a su hermano Raúl. Murió el 25 de noviembre de 2016 en la Habana.
