Havana, October 28.- Led by Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and President of the Republic, the residents of the capital paid tribute to the Commander of the Rebel Army Camilo Cienfuegos Gorriarán (1932-1959), in a massive parade that extended from the Plaza de la Revolución to the Malecón.
Hugo Fuentes, a student at the Faculty of Law of the University of Havana, pointed out that despite his sudden death, the man also known as the Hero of Yaguajay left an indelible mark on the history of struggle in the largest of the Antilles.
His dedication, leadership and commitment represent the greatest legacy for the younger generations of Cubans, he highlighted.
Daniel Alejandro Corrales, Law student and Secretary of Culture of that faculty, reaffirmed the commitment that the figure of Camilo represents for those like him, who contribute every day to strengthening the work of the Revolution.
Annielis Heredia Rivero, a student at the Camilo Cienfuegos Military School in Capdevila, in the municipality of Boyeros, recalled the qualities of the Lord of the Vanguard that from an early age reflected her rejection of the crimes committed by the Batista dictatorship.
Heredia Rivero recognized his loyalty to the Commander in Chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, and to the people in general, as the quality that most distinguished this hero.
Also participating in the tribute from the people of Havana were Roberto Morales Ojeda, Secretary of Organization of the Central Committee of the PCC; Rogelio Polanco Fuentes, member of the Secretariat of the Central Committee of the PCC and head of the Ideological Department, as well as other leaders of the Party, the Government and the country's mass organizations.
Camilo Cienfuegos Gorriarán carried out countless actions from exile in Mexico and in 1956 he was the last revolutionary captured by the July 26 Movement to enroll in the Granma expedition and achieve definitive victory three years later.
This Saturday, October 28, it will be 64 years since his physical disappearance. (Text and photo: ACN)
