Tensions increased in Cuba in late March and early April of that year; everybody prepared themselves for a violent showdown. Larger numbers of Latin American, European, and U.S. reporters roamed around the island, witnessing first hand police and rebel violence. Batista prepared his troops for a rebel-developed general strike. His troops chased dissidents of types, killing M-26-7 suspects on the spot. Rebel units also destroyed Oriente Province, battling with Cuban forces, stopping traffic. The U.S. Embassy initiated the early phases of evacuation plan for its citizens.

Keywords:   Cuba, Castro, Batista, M-26-7, Oriente Province, U.S. Embassy
