As on that January 8, 1959, the victorious Caravan of Freedom re-entered Havana, announcing to the country a new stage of profound economic and social transformations.
Then, the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, stopped in many places to talk to the people, who received him vibrantly, because, as today, there was much to say and explain.
“We have found in unity, collective leadership and love for the homeland the fundamental resources to get here, committed to solve the problems that most afflict the people,” said Luis Antonio Torres Iríbar, first secretary of the Provincial Committee of the Party in the capital, at the ceremony for the 65th anniversary of the entry of the Caravan, on Monday.
In Libertad School City, and in the presence of Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Party and President of the Republic, Torres Iríbar expressed that we are living an exceptional moment, focused on developing the economy, unleashing the productive forces and putting into practice new formulas that, attached to our principles, favor the necessary prosperity.
In view of this scenario, he said that we must reinforce our preparation to face it, strengthening values, fulfilling each task, speaking clearly, timely and honestly to the people.
Brigadier General Delsa Esther Puebla Viltres, on behalf of those who 65 years ago traveled more than a thousand kilometers in the libertarian caravan, reaffirmed that Cubans must maintain our unbreakable unity and faith in victory.
The commemoration was attended by members of the Political Bureau Esteban Lazo Hernández, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, and Roberto Morales Ojeda, secretary of Organization of the Central Committee of the Party; the Commander of the Revolution Ramiro Valdés Menéndez, the Commander of the Rebel Army José Ramón Machado Ventura, and authorities of the political, student and mass organizations.
