The cedar urn embraced by the Cuban flag and surrounded by white roses with the ashes of Fidel Castro arrives this Thursday in Sancti Spiritus, central Cuba, as part of the route planned from Havana to Santiago de Cuba to recall the Caravan of Freedom, headed by the Commander in Chief during the first days of the revolutionary triumph of 1959.

On both sides of the Central Highway and along the 71 kilometers between the limits of this province with the neighboring Villa Clara and Ciego de Ávila, the people will go to bid farewell to its historic leader.

The route includes the municipalities of Cabaiguán, Sancti Spíritus and Jatibonico, although the rest of the territories will be also represented in this tribute.

Students, workers, housewives, pensioners, peasants … arrived since very early to this historic route with Cuban and 26th of July flags, photographs of Fidel and a deep sorrow inside their soul in order say the last goodbye.

The Caravan with the mortal remains of Fidel, in his pilgrimage from the Ministry of the Armed Forces in the Cuban capital to the Santa Ifigenia Cemetery in Santiago de Cuba, will travel about 1,000 kilometers.

    Mi mas sincero pésame al pueblo cubano por la muerte del héroe revolucionario Comandante Fidel Castro. Mi primer pensamiento de Fidel cuando yo era niño era de temor por toda la desinformación que era propagada en mi país El Salvador. a través de mi vida me he dado cuenta que Fidel Castro representa las aspiraciones de los pueblos del mundo que han sido torturados por un capitalismo que es la herramienta de los mas ricos para subyugar las aspiraciones de todos los pueblos del mundo. La acumulacion de las riquezas de nuestro planeta representa una amenaza para el bienestar de los humanos y la fauna. Un consumerismo desmedido que acaba con nuestro ambiente natural y pone en peligro nuestro planeta.
    A Fidel se le acusa de ir contra los derechos humanos aunque su principal acusador son los Estados Unidos, dicho país que a boicoteado la nación cubano estos últimos 50 años en todo aspecto económico social y politico usando los exiliados cubanos que eran los que apoyaban a Fulgencio Batista el ex dictador cubano apoyado por los Estados Unidos y sus mafias.
    La herencia de Fidel Castro es de independencia nacional como país y como humanos. La educación y la salud.
    RIP Comandante
