The closing speech was given by Deiby Pérez, who is also a representative of Cabaiguán municipality, who noted the high sense of unity of the Hero of Yaguajay, as Camilo Cienfuegos is also known, who at times of the revolutionary struggle knew how to organize the guerrillas that operated in the northern region of central Cuba.

Heroes are remembered every day for their righteousness and determination to carry out the just cause of Socialism and defend the work for which they gave their lives. That is the command word of our people, she noted.

The North Front of Las Villas was formed on October 7, 1958, when Column Two, Antonio Maceo, led by Camilo Cienfuegos, arrived in the Boquerones area, municipality of Yaguajay, from the Sierra Maestra mountain range in eastern Cuba.
