The inhabitants of this Matanzas municipality, representing all Cubans, remember the nineteenth anniversary of the Battle of Ideas Program, conceived by our Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, with a massive and patriotic march, which demands once plus the cessation of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States on the Island.
The march is made up of mothers and grandmothers who fought with their teeth and nails 19 years ago to snatch the child Elián from the mafia in Miami and begin in the central Coronel Verdugo street, in front of the former home of Raquel Rodríguez, Elián’s maternal grandmother, deceased, and will end at the Museum at the Battle of Ideas.
The director of that prestigious institution, Alberto Pérez Pérez, said that the collective of workers has made his own the message that the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution left in the guest book, in which he recommended that they have to be an example for Cuba and the nundo. And this has been done, first with the rescue of Elián and later with the case of the five prisoners of the Empire. Also, with exchanges with tourists who were interested in touring the five rooms of the Museum, many of which contributed to the freedom of these innocent men and here they knew the Cuban reality.
The young people of the Student Federation of Secondary Education (FEEM) will join this meeting to celebrate its anniversary and the 25th birthday of Elián González Brotón, turned into an industrial engineer thanks to his talent and the Revolution.
This march will be joined by the centennial museum collective Oscar María de Rojas, which celebrated the fifteenth anniversary of the reopening of this cultural installation by the leader of the Cuban Revolution after a capital reparation. The installation exhibits in its rooms an exhibition about this event with photos that collect images of Fidel surrounded by workers.
