Just a year after the passage of the caravan with the funeral procession of Fidel through the city of Matanzas, the Commander in Chief is remembered through these images that collect for history the feeling of the people for their greatest leader, the man who made the Cuban Revolution possible.
From different points of the province, Cubans expressed their feelings with the conviction of enforcing Fidel’s humanist legacy.
Thousands of Matanceros on November 30, 2016 did not need a call to accompany the funeral of the Commander in Chief, they filled the streets with respectful silence, which was interrupted only by a multigenerational choir that said: I am Fidel.
Days before his move towards immortality through the city of Matanzas, the people showed their attachment to Fidel by leaving their signatures on the books of condolences.
Among them Nemesia, one of the victims of the epic of Playa Girón that immortalized the Nabori Indian in his verses “Elegy of the white zapaticos”, and who had the opportunity to share on multiple occasions with the Cuban leader.
Cuba was all aware of the route that ended in the cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, in Santiago de Cuba, where lies the man of such stature, who lives in the heart of his town.
