Cuban People Pay Tribute to Commander Camilo Cienfuegos on the 54th Anniversary of his Disappearance

Havana, October 28 (RHC) People from all walks of life paid tribute on Monday to guerrilla commander Camilo Cienfuegos, whose plane disappeared during a flight from eastern Cuba to Havana 54 years ago.

High school and university students, workers and members of the public threw flowers on the sea in the annual tribute to commander Cienfuegos.

In eastern Camagüey, a sculpture by National Plastic Arts laureate Jose Villa Soberon was raised on the road towards the airport—the last place commander Cienfuegos was seen alive. The sculpture includes four stars that ascend from a water base, with the first of them bearing an inscription by Fidel Castro reading “there are many Camilos among the people.”
