HAVANA, Cuba.- Army General Raul Castro, president of the councils of State and Ministers, greeted and congratulated Guantanamo residents and all Cubans, during a short speech at the main rally to mark 26 of July, Day of National Rebelliousness.
The Cuban head of state praised this Thursday’s commemoration at the “Mariana Grajales” Revolution Square, which he described as “model”, like all ceremonies should be, he said, and extolled the performance of the province’s young artists and the participation of all those present at that stand.
Raul also congratulated all Cubans throughout the island, and pointed out that the decision of designating comrade Machado Ventura to deliver the main speech was natural and fair.
Likewise, he acknowledged the efforts of locals in the preparation of the “Mariana Grajales” Square for the main rally to mark the 59th anniversary of the attacks on the Moncada and Carlos Manuel de Cespedes garrisons.
