Díaz-Canel commemorates the return of Che Guevara’s remains to Cuba

Havana, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel commemorated the 25th anniversary of the arrival of the remains of Argentine-Cuban revolutionary Ernesto Che Guevara to the central city of Santa Clara.

Through his Twitter account, the president considered this date as unforgettable and stressed that the example and dreams of Che,’continue to pull everyone like a magnet’.

On October 14, 1997, the remains of Guevara and six of his comrades were transferred to Santa Clara, capital of Villa Clara province in the center of the country.

The ossuaries of the Argentine-Cuban commander were deposited in the Caturla hall of the José Martí provincial library, where thousands of people paraded in front of it until October 17, when they were taken to the Che Guevara memorial, in the morning hours.

Che Guevara’s coffin had arrived in Cuba from Bolivia on July 12, 1997, after his remains were found in the Vallegrande airstrip.
