Guayaberas owned by Cuban antiterrorist fighters Gerardo Hernandez and Fernando Gonzalez are to be handed over to Sancti Spiritus cultural heritage during the solemn Municipal Assembly of the People’s Power, specially called on the occasion of the 498th anniversary, this June 4th,  of Sancti Spiritus city.

The cultural festivities that started last Friday to honor a new anniversary of Cuba’s 4th village end on Monday night.

Adriana Perez and Rosa Aurora Freijanes, wives of Gerardo and Rene, respectively, will donate the garments to be part of the collection of the Guayabera Socio-Cultural Project in Sancti Spiritus, unique in the world.

The solemn session of the local government, scheduled for Monday morning in the above-mentioned cultural institution, will honor Gerardo, one of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters held in US soil, whose anniversary is also on June 4th when he arrives at the age of 47 in Victorville’s prison, in California.
