Guantanamo, Nov 22 (Prensa Latina) The 29th Pastors for Peace Caravan arrived on Thursday in this city, where its members were welcomed by the local authorities, the delegation of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with Peoples (ICAP) and the Council of Churches.
Upon arrival, the caravan members laid a wreath at the foot of the monument to Mariana Grajales, a symbol of Cuban mothers, due to the important role she played in the wars of independence against Spanish colonialism.
The caravan, headed by Gail Walker, the daughter of Lucius Walker, who founded this initiative, was accompanied by ICAP President Fernando Gonzalez. They will stay in Guantanamo for three days, during which they will participate in several events.
In Guantanamo, the Pastors for Peace caravan will meet with residents and university students and will visit the overseas town of Caimanera, bordering the illegal US naval base that for more than a century has occupied part of Cuban territory.
There they will learn about the changes and achievements made after the revolutionary triumph in a town where the US marines had fun until January 1959.
