|The Angolan people turned out in their thousands to celebrate their freedom and to thank the heroes of the struggle against imperialist oppression, the Movimento Popular de Libertação de Angola (MPLA)|
Today that struggle reached its climax with the end of Portuguese rule and the defeat of the racist South African invasion by the MPLA, with the support of Cuban soldiers fulfilling their international duty.
The MPLA has successfully stopped the racist army as they sought to take advantage of conditions in the lead up to independence and install a puppet regime led by the Holden Roberto and his gang of CIA funded thugs, the so called Frente Nacional de Libertação de Angola or FNLA.
The Army of Apartheid has been decisively defeated in several battles outside the capital and the MPLA has also beaten special units of hired killers, or mercenaries, paid for by the CIA.
The Cuban Revolution salutes our Angolan comrades! Socialismo o Muerte!
