On 1st January 1959, with the triumph of the Cuban Revolution, human rights got a real meaning for Cuba and its people.

For the first time in history, Cuba achieved true independence, which enabled its people to exercise their right to self-determination and to create the conditions for full and universal enjoyment of all human rights for all.
