SANTA CLARA, Cuba. – In Santa Clara, also known as the City of Che, they work intensely to commemorate next October 8 the 50th anniversary of the physical disappearance of Commander Ernesto Che Guevara, and the two decades of the arrival of his remains to the Revolution Square named after him.
The national act to commemorate the date will be next Sunday morning at 7:00 a.m. in Santa Clara, where the heroic guerrilla´s remains and those of his companions of the reinforcement detachment are guarded, as Fidel called the international revolutionaries fallen in Bolivia.
The Ernesto Che Guevara Revolution Square is practically ready, and the decoration of its exterior areas will be completed in the next few hours.
The bronze statue representing Che of 13 tons was restores last June by the German company MD Projekt Management GmbH, in collaboration with the Office of the Historian of the City of Havana. The work also included the repair of all the elements of the tribune. Gardens have been improved, because they were practically destroyed after Hurricane Irma.
