Fidel Castro

Join Dr Robert Austin to discuss Castro’s controversial and lasting impact on Cuba and wider world politics, on the anniversary of the iconic but failed 1953 uprising against the Batista dictatorship, at the Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba.

Fidel Castro led Cuba for nearly 50 years. A charismatic Marxist revolutionary who deposed the right wing Batista regime, he had an extraordinary impact on global politics and history.

To his critics, Castro was a totalitarian despot, who denied Cubans basic freedoms and pushed the world to the brink of nuclear war during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

But to his defenders and admirers, he was a revolutionary hero who ensured Cubans had access to universal health care and an enviable education system.
