Transcript of Fever Model of The Cuban Revolution
By Conor Canfield and Shane Lopez
*Fulgencio Batista was Cuba’s president.
He served from 1926-1944 for his first term.
*He became president again in in 1952.
*He was a lot more dictatorial in his second term of presidency.
*He didn't care about the peoples concerns such as a high unemployment rate or the amount of clean water in Cuba.
*He also allowed the companies of the United States to control Cuba’s economy. The United States demanded a certain amount of sugar each year, which was Cuba's main crop.
*The peasants wanted more land and they wanted both economic and political freedom.
This stage in revolution includes the political, social, or economic causes. These problems can build up over the years.
*Raul and Fidel Castro led 123 angry rebels to Moncada Barracks.
*However they were unsuccessful and 56 of them were killed by the government of Batista.
*Castro was sentenced to 15 years in prison but was released 2 years later due to Batista releasing all political prisoners.
*In 1955 they joined forces with Ernesto Guevara and tried to overthrow Batista again.
*The 26th of July Movement had begun on December 2.
*Only 20 men survived out of the 80 that they had begun with.
*On March 15, 1957 the Student Revolutionary Directorate attempted to assassinate Batista but were unsuccessful.
*The Battle of Santa Clara was on December 31, 1958. Batista got word that he was being hunted and soon fled to Dominican Republic.
*Over 20,000 people had lost their lives between the start of Batista's second term and his overthrow in 1959.
*Shortly after Batista fled Manuel Urrutia Lleo was appointed president of Cuba.
*Black Cubans and women’s rights were equalized.
*Education was more important because all Cuban children are receiving an education.
* Manuel Urrutia Lleo soon stepped down and Fidel Castro became president.
This stage involves direct action and riots by the people and general unrest.
This stage is the point in rebellion where the rebellion either succeeds or fails. A successful revolution survives this stage.
In this stage, the revolution is ending and a new, but weaker, government is established.
