This new documentary tells the story of the Oct. 6, 1976, bombing of a Cubana Airlines flight from Barbados by US-backed opponents of Cuba’s revolutionary government. All 73 passengers were killed, including the entire Cuban junior fencing team, many of them teens. Washington never prosecuted the US-based counterrevolutionaries responsible for the crime. The bombing was part of Washington’s 64-year-long, ongoing efforts to overthrow the Cuban Revolution, including brutal economic sanctions. Footage includes Fidel Castro’s powerful speech to one million Cubans after the bombing.
On the anniversary of the 1976 bombing of the Cuban airliner:
