From Granma, May 16, 2011

THE Cuban Revolution has been the object of hundreds of disinformation campaigns, usually orchestrated by the U.S. government with the complicity of European allies in conjunction with the powerful forces and interests which control the corporate media. However, they have not been able to divert Cubans from their ideals of independence and socialism, nor confuse the peoples of the planet who, despite everything, are led by wisdom and instinct to the truth.

50th Anniversary of Historic Cuban Victory at Playa Giron: A New Era in the Americas Print E-mail

On April 17, 1961 more than 1,400 United States CIA-trained and led mercenaries launched an invasion of Cuba at Playa Giron (also known as the Bay of Pigs), located in the south-central region of the island. Spearheaded by the notorious Brigade 2506, comprised of henchmen of the former U.S. backed dictator Fulgencio Batista, terrorists and deposed rich landowners, the aim of the invasion was to overthrow the young revolution that had, scarcely more than two years previously, triumphed on January 1st, 1959.

Under the CIA’s Plan Pluto, the invaders’ objective was to establish a beachhead, fly in representatives from the Cuban-exile community in Miami, and then declare that a new "provisional government" had been constituted. This “provisional government” would then request that the United States intervene militarily in Cuba.
