SIERRA MAESTRA TEACHERS RALLY NO. 10

FIDEL CASTRO SPEECH (CONTINUED)

WHO HAS SAID THAT WORLD IS YANKEES.  YANKEES INTERVENE EVERYWHERE:  KOREA,
FORMOSA, INDOCHINA, TURKEY, ITS FLEET NOW PROTECTING PUPPET CHIANG-KAI-SHEK, IT
HAS BASES ALL OVER WORLD.  US INTERVENES EVERYWHERE.  AND THEY CONDEMN
INTERVENTION OF SOVIET UNION IN AMERICA.  WHAT CONCEPT OF WORLD DID "SARDINES"
HAVE AT SAN JOSE!  OUR ANSWER WILL COME AT FRIDAY RALLY.  WE WILL ENTRENCH
OURSELVES AND ARM OURSELVES TO THE TEETH.

REFERRED TO ALLEGED PENTAGON STATEMENT ABOUT CAPACITY TO IMPLEMENT SANCTIONS
AGAINST CUBA.  WHO TOLD PENTAGON IT COULD SEND PARATROOPERS ---- HERE?  IF THEY
COME, THEY WILL STAY.  DON'T THEY KNOW THAT ALL CUBANS WILL FIGHT TO DEATH.  HOW
CAN THEY BE SO STUPID.  NO ONE WILL WAIT FOR AN ORDER TO KILL A PARATROOPER
WHERE HE LANDS.  CAN THEY BE SO STUPID TO THINK THAT THIS IS ANOTHER GUATEMALA?
WHERE IS THEIR INTELLIGENCE?  DON'T THEY REALIZE THAT OUR REVOLUTION IS SO
SOLIDLY ENTRENCHED THAT NOTHING CAN BUDGE IT.  HOW HARD IT IS FOR EMPIRES TO SEE
THEY ARE IN DECADENCE!  HOW IGNORANT THEY ARE OF HISTORY!

HOW BLIND THEY ARE THAT IT IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE TO SEIZE A SMALL STATE AND
DESTROY IT!  IF THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THESE TRUTHS, IT IS BEST TO ADVANCE THEM.
MAYBE THEY WILL MEND THEIR WAYS.  THEIR CANDIDATES NIXON AND KENNEDY ARE ENGAGED
IN A COMPETITION OF STUPIDITIES.  WHAT AN "OLYMPIAD OF MEDIOCRITY".

WE MUST DIG IN AND ARM TO THE TEETH UNDER BANNER OF "PATRIA O MUERTE" AND
"VENECERREMOS".  WORLD, REASON AND HISTORY ARE WITH US.

HE CLOSED BY URGING EVERYONE TO TURN OUT FOR FRIDAY RALLY.

(CASTRO STOPPED SPEAKING AT 2:48 AM AFTER 3 1/4 HOURS:)
