Some 140 000 workers and their relatives will parade this May Day in Sancti Spiritus. People will welcome the International Workers’ Day united and committed to fulfill what was agreed upon at the recent 6th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party.
This city’s Serafín Sanchez Revolution Square, named after the mambi leader known as the general of the three independence wars, awaits for the workers’ commemoration. Several billboards have been placed in the area along with colorful flags.
This year’s May Day commemoration will also pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Bay of Pigs victory over the US-led invasion, the declaration of the socialist character of the Cuban Revolution and the epic illiteracy campaign.
Similar parades will be held in the other seven municipalities of the province. Likewise workers and residents from 34 of the largest local communities attended rallies and other activities to mark the working class event.
Sancti Spiritus’s residents are thus ready to welcome the International Workers’ Day united and committed to fulfill what was agreed upon at the recent 6th Congress of the Cuban Communist Party.
