Audio-only excerpts of one of Fidel Castro's last major speeches before falling ill in 2006. Castro made two speeches on July 26, 2006, the anniversary of the start of the revolution. The first - this one - was in Bayamo in eastern Cuba. It began just after dawn and lasted more than two hours. The second speech - in Holguin - was much shorter.
Not long after the speech, Castro underwent emergency surgery for an intestinal ailment. He dropped out of sight while recovering for four years after that and didn't give a speech again until September 2010.
