Castro Tells Brazil to Follow Cuba's Example

Aug. 28, 1961 - Cuban Premier Fidel Castro today urged Brazil to set up a guerrilla war against what he termed "reactionary militarists" who forced the resignation of Brazilian President Janio Quadros three days ago. Castro, in a television address, said that "if workers, peasants, students, and progressive people and honest military men take up arms and organize not one front but a thousand fronts, never will the military reactionaries be able to defeat them." Castro said the Brazilian population should "make use of the experience of Cuba and hurl itself into battle."
