"And our people is one of those peoples that never hesitates in the face of sacrifice, it is one of the peoples that has never hesitated in the face of the price it has to pay for its dignity and its freedom; a people that has never hesitated, and never will, in the face of what it has to pay for its happiness.”
“The 26 of July is a sad date for imperialism; it is a painful date for Yankee imperialists, for the foreign monopolies, for the major landowners, for the great industry and finances magnates, for the big speculators, for the big gamblers, for the big contrabandists; it is a painful, sad date for all those big generals who used to act as if they owned the country; it is a painful, sad date for the politicians; it is a painful, sad date for the big criminals; it is a painful, sad date for all the enemies of the people. And, of course, the Revolution is painful and sad for all those who have seen their privileges vanish with the laws passed by the Revolution; those are the ones that feel worried about the26 of July.”
“In the unity of this people lies the strength, in the unity of this people lies its invincibility, and the history of this revolution proves that a united people is invincible. The history of this revolution proves that in unity there is strength! The history of this revolution shows that the worst threat to the success of a revolution and a people is divisionism.”
“Eight years ago, on a day like today, that episode we are commemorating, the attack on the Moncada Barracks, occurred. That battle meant a reverse for us. It was not a victory of weapons, but it was a moral victory, a triumph of dignity. The setback was not important, what the revolution had to tolerate in its long advance was not just a setback”.
"The last battles were fought by this generation, beginning eight years ago on a 26 July. Fighting, bleeding, struggling and making sacrifices, the people won power, after paying the very high price of their finest sons."
“United we will carry this cause till the end! Us, and behind us, the youth, and behind the youth, the coming generations! With faith in the people, faith in the future, with the faith of the 26 of July, with the faith Granma and Sierra Maestra gave us, that people has never failed and never will!”
“What a great satisfaction and what emotion we feel today on 26 July to think that in such a dignified way our people are paying homage to the martyrs of the revolution, to the men who fell. What better reward, what better reply, what better fruit than this nation!”
