Caravan led by Fidel Castro 64 years ago reenacted in Cuba

Young people and children left from the vicinity of the former Moncada Barracks in Santiago de Cuba to reedit the Caravan of Freedom that 64 years ago toured Cuba after the insurrectional triumph of January 1st, 1959.

As every year, the people from Santiago will reach the municipality of Jiguaní, in the current province of Granma, where they started a journey of remarkable patriotic symbolism and continuity, during which more than a thousand kilometers will be covered until ending in the city of Havana on January 8.

In the ceremony that bid farewell to the new participants, Brigadier General José Solar Hernández, a combatant of the Rebel Army, recalled the euphoria of those days, when Cubans were beginning to experience true freedom and the possibility of social justice that would open up.

For her part, the young first secretary of the Young Communist League in the province, Lisbet Ramirez, alluded to the loyalty of the new generations to the cause of the Revolution, increased throughout these years of achievements, challenges and sacrifices.

The new caravan departed from an environment of great historical transcendence, very close to the Abel Santamaría Park, dedicated to the memory of the second chief of the assault on the Moncada Barracks who became a paradigm of loyalty and revolutionary coherence.

Five years, five months and five days after that event, on July 26, 1953, the rebels triumphantly entered the city and from the balconies of the City Hall announced the victory over the army, superior in numbers and equipment, of the tyrannical government of Fulgencio Batista.
