In honor of the 50th anniversary of the 30th of November uprising in the island, two books, one website and several multimedia have been launched with diverse points of view on the historic insurrection.

The November 30 uprising, one of the most important events in the Cuban revolutionary struggle, was organized by young revolutionary Frank Pais to support the arrival of the Granma yacht expedition, which arrived two days behind schedule with 82 men aboard, led by Fidel Castro.

"Insurgent Santiago" by historians Reinaldo Cruz and Rafael Borges is a compilation of articles on significant moments of the battle against dictator Fulgencio Batista, from 1953 to the final defeat of the tyrant in January 1959.

"El rostro descubierto de la clandestinidad" (Uncovering the Underground Movement) is based on a selection of memories of Gloria Cuadras, chosen and edited by journalist Martha Cabrales, Prensa Latina correspondent in Santiago de Cuba.

Gloria Cuadras was part of the M-26-7 (26th of July Movement) general staff, and played an outstanding role in the organization and development of the 30th November uprising, which was the first time the revolutionaries dressed in olive green fatigues and wore the M-26-7 armband.

The presentation of the books was made in front of the house that served as M-26-7 headquarters in the presence of several participants of the November 30 actions.
