Cuban youth honor Comandante Hugo Chávez

Hugo y FidelWith the assurance that Hugo Chávez lives on and the struggle continues, as much remains to be done, Cuban youth will celebrate what would have been the late Bolivarian leader’s 62nd birthday this July 28.

As part of tributes, encounters will take place, as have been held over the past three years, since 2013, organized by the Young Communist League (UJC) in collaboration with other Cuban youth and student movements and organizations as part of the cultural initiative Los amigos del Amigo (The Friends of the Friend).

Speaking to CAN, Pedro Ortega, UJC National Committee representative reported that the main event will be held July 28, at the Historic Morro-Cabaña Military Complex at 9pm, just after the traditional cannon firing ceremony, to celebrate the life of Venezuela’s eternal Comandante-President and Cuba’s best friend, as fittingly described by Fidel.

He also confirmed the presence, among other guests, of Aleidita daughter of Comandante Ernesto Che Guevara and Dr. Jorge González Pérez, the Ministry of Public Health’s National Teaching director, who will recall the Chávez they knew and admired, as well as the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, approaching his 90th birthday, and the extraordinary friendship between two great sons of Bolívar, Martí and Our America, two essential figures of modern history, brothers in the struggle and of dreams, noted Ortega.
