Gerardo, Antonio, Fernando and Ramon, the four of the Cuban Five now visiting Holguin for the first time all together, have been living moving moments.
Holguin, Our Endless Gratitude for the Support of The Five
Cuban Hero Fernando Gonzalez Thanks Solidarity

That was the case when Gerardo and Antonio received the Aldabon de La Periquera, the top award granted by the Municipal Assembly of the People's Power, when the packed Celia Sanchez Manduley theater gave them a long standing ovation.
Rene, Ramon and Fernando had been previously acknowledged with this award.

The provincial directive board of the Committees of the Defence of the Revolution (CDR) also acknowledged the Cuban Heroes for their defence of honor, dignity and fair causes.

Notably moved, the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in the province of Holguin, Luis Antonio Torres Iribar, stressed on his address the binds that tie those heroes with this northeastern jurisdiction.

Torres Iribar also praised the chance of meeting them, sharing with them, and recognize how much they can contribute with Cuban society today, to move forward in the zeal of achieving a prosperous and sustainable socialism.

    Good to see these brave Cubans in Holguin. Sad that the terrorist mastermind Luis Posada Carriles remains free in the USA; he should be extradited to Cuba for trial.
