A Slice out of Fidel Castro and Alexander Lukashenko

The hero idols in the world always printed into many different categories in order to promote their works and their devotion for humankind, especially to help the weaker citizens in work sectors or society to raise their voice against the oppression leaders and claim back their equal rights in living and working conditions. Those famous figures usually printed on paper or billboards to present at the public, so that most people can see the photos of them more often. In another way to promote the two great heroes in fighting against the oppression in the world, they printed advertisement on two cakes designing as the head of them with cutting out mouth piece. That is a powerful way to help encourage more people to do great job for society and also send the message to all oppression leaders in the world know that how the advertising way impact the bad way they are leading on their people. Let’s check the information on Fidel Castro’s background as following:

Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz born August 13, 1926) is a Cuban politician and revolutionary who served as Prime Minister of the Republic of Cuba from 1959 to 1976 and then President from 1976 to 2008. Politically a Marxist–Leninist and Cuban nationalist, he also served as the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba from 1961 until 2011. Under his administration Cuba became a one-party socialist state; industry and business were nationalized, and state socialist reforms were implemented throughout society. Internationally, Castro was the Secretary-General of the Non-Aligned Movement from 1979 to 1983 and from 2006 to 2008.

Born in Birán as the son of a wealthy farmer, Castro adopted leftist anti-imperialist politics while studying law at the University of Havana. After participating in rebellions against right-wing governments in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, he planned the overthrow of Cuban President Fulgencio Batista, launching a failed attack on the Moncada Barracks in 1953. After a year’s imprisonment, he traveled to Mexico where he formed a revolutionary group, the 26th of July Movement, with Che Guevara and his brother Raúl Castro. Returning to Cuba, Castro took a key role in the Cuban Revolution by leading the Movement in a guerrilla war against Batista’s forces from the Sierra Maestra. After Batista’s overthrow in 1959, Castro assumed military and political power. The United States was alarmed by Castro’s friendly relations with the Soviet Union, and unsuccessfully attempted to remove him by assassination, economic blockade, and counter-revolution, including the Bay of Pigs invasion of 1961. Countering these threats, Castro formed an alliance with the Soviets and allowed them to place nuclear weapons on the island, sparking the Cuban Missile Crisis – a defining incident of the Cold War – in 1962.
