Santiago de Cuba, Nov 18 (Prensa Latina) The 29th Caravan of Pastors for Peace paid tribute here on Saturday, in the patrimonial cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, to Fidel Castro, to whom the United States-Cuba friendship initiative was closely linked since 1992.
The first gesture in the city of solidarity activists, led by Gail Walker, daughter of the Reverend Lucius Walker, promoter of that crusade until his death in 2010, was extended to Jose Marti and the founding fathers of the Homeland with fresh flowers before the eternal flame of the necropolis.
Gail Walker expressed the emotions of being in this sacred place and thus fulfilling the circle of human existence because in the early hours of the morning they visited the town of Biran, in the northeastern province of Holguin, where they appreciated the beginning of everything, with the birth of the future leader.
Lazaro Exposito, first secretary of the Communist Party in this province, attended the reception to the members of this 29th edition, who will carry out an intense program with visits to museums and other points of cultural, historical, social and educational interest.
On Sunday they will meet in the emblematic town of El Cobre, 22 kilometers from this city, the Sanctuary of the Virgin of Charity, Patroness of Cuba, and the Monument to the Cimarron, Alberto Lescay’s sculptural work that pays homage to the slave rebellion.
Encounters with religious practitioners of various denominations, exchange in the provincial government about the Cuban electoral system and a visit to the National Center for Seismological Research are part of the agenda.
