    Story about President John F. Kennedy pledging that "WE WILL NOT ABANDON CUBA TO REDS"

    Various shots of pro-Castro demonstration which took place in East Berlin by East German communists. Various shots of demonstration by Cuban exiles in Miami against Russian intervention in Cuba. Various shots of mass demonstration which took place outside American Embassy in Moscow, led by Russian youths.

    Various shots of President Kennedy as he addresses American newspaper editors, he speaks about Cuba, refers to the Bay of Pigs invasion, and says that it must never come under Russian rule. (Comb. F.G.)

    Note: Kennedy is addressing American newspaper editors to declare US policy. He denies that the Cuban rebels were mercenaries and promises not to abandon Cuba to the communists. The film is a classic example from the Cold War.
