The members of the Puerto Rican Juan Rius Rivera Solidarity Brigade arrived in the central Cuban province of Sancti Spiritus, where they will participate in the national commemoration of the 26th of July, to be held in this territory next Tuesday.
The brigadistas, who came to the island to convey their unconditional support to the Cuban Revolution, will tour this Sunday the ancient city of Trinidad, the third village founded in Cuba which holds the title of Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1988.
The brigade is made up of nearly 118 members, including a group of young people who come for the first time in order to get a first-hand knowledge of the Cuban reality.
According to sources from the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) in Sancti Spiritus, this is an opportunity to further strengthen the bonds of friendship between the two countries, which were forged since times of José Martí, founder of the Cuban Revolutionary Party, who designed a libertarian project not only thinking of his homeland.
Gloria La Riva, who played a significant role in the struggle for the liberation of our Five Heroes, and Gail Walker, daughter of the late founder of Pastors for Peace movement, Lucius Walker, will be also present in the commemoration.
Several other foreign visitors have already confirmed their presence, including 13 members of the Austria-Cuba Friendship Association. Students from other countries who are currently studying in local universities will be attending the rally, as well.
