Cuban politician Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz’ birthday is August 13, 1926. Castro was the Cuban Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and their President from 1976 to 2008. He was the Commander-in-Chief of their armed forces from 1959 until 2008, and he served as their First Secretary of the Communist Party from 1961 to 2011. He also served as the Secretary-General for the Non-Aligned Movement for the 1979 to 1983 time period, and then again from 2006 to 2008. Castro identifies politically as a Marxist-Leninist, and it was under his administration that Cuba became a one-party, socialist state. Castro is seen as a controversial and disruptive world figure. He completed a one-year prison stint in 1953 after a failed attack on the Moncada Barracks. Upon his release, he went to Mexico and formed a revolutionary alliance with his brother and Che Guevara, who was a friend of his. They called themselves the “26th of July Movement.” Castro’s supporters believe him to be a champion of such causes as socialism, environmentalism, anti-imperialism, and humanitarianism, while his critics see him as more of a dictator who has encouraged the abuse of human rights. He has been cited as a strong political influence on such public figures as Evo Morales, Daniel Ortega, Nelson Mandela, Hugo Chávez, and Rafael Correa.
