The Angolan War of Independence was a struggle for control of Angola between guerrilla movements and Portuguese colonial authority. Cuba supplied the People’s Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) rebels with weapons and soldiers to fight. The Cuban military would fight alongside the MPLA in major battles.

In October of 1975, South Africa invaded Angola with the support of the U.S. government to overthrow the left-wing Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) in the soon-to-be independent country.

In 1988, Cuban troops intervened again and also convinced the Soviet Union to back the People’s Armed Forces for the Liberation of Angola (FAPLA) offensive against UNITA, which was supported by South Africa.

The impact of the victory of Black Cuban and Angolan soldiers resonated far beyond the battlefield and is credited to have lead to the overturning of white minority rule in southern Africa and the later collapse of the Apartheid Regime in South Africa, ultimately shattering of the illusion of white invincibility.

Cuba Provided Assistance in ANC’s Fight Against Apartheid

Cuba under Castro opposed apartheid and supported the African National Congress (ANC). While in Angola, the Caribbean country provided a territorial base of support to the military wing of the African National Congress (ANC), which was exiled by the Apartheid regime. By 1990, succumbing to increased international pressures, South African President F. W. de Klerk reinstated the ANC and released Nelson Mandela.

Cuba Provided Amnesty to Assata Shakur

Fidel Castro granted amnesty to Joanne Chesimard, known now as Assata Shakur, because she stood up against racial oppression and injustice in the U.S., where she is still wanted for the 1973 killing of a New Jersey state trooper, Werner Foerster. Shakur was convicted under highly questionable procedures in 1979, but with the help of comrades, she managed to break out of prison and flee to Cuba, where she remains protected from the U.S. government.

Meda wo ase! Thanks for this information. Another significant step will be when majority Black Cuba gets an Afrikan/Black leader. The struggle against white world terror domination continues (even after that)...

Ma ku Mbôngi, ka matômbulawanga za ko. "The community's political institution does not borrow foreign dialects to discuss its political matters or to educate its' members" – Kikôngo proverb “The history of Africa will remain suspended in air and cannot be written correctly until African historians connect it with the history of Egypt [...] The African historian who evades the problem of Egypt is neither modest or objective, nor unruffled, he is ignorant, cowardly, and neurotic.” – Cheikh Anta Diop, The African Origin of Civilization: Myth or Reality "African champions must break the chain that links African ideas to European ones and listen to the voice of the ancestors without European interpreters." – Jacob Carruthers, Mdw Ntr
