EspañolComandante Huber Matos (1918-2014) was a key figure in the Cuban revolution. He collaborated in the coup against the government of Fulgencio Batista (1952-59) and gave vital support to Fidel Castro, supplying him with arms and ammunition to overthrow the dictator.
But as the revolution moved towards communism, Matos was disenchanted. He’d supported the struggle in the name of democracy, but the Castro-led leadership had abandoned any such ideas. “Fidel, you’re destroying your own work,” Matos warned Castro.
