A beautiful sculpture that replicates the Granma yacht was unveiled in Tuxpan, Veracruz, the place from where Fidel Castro and 82 revolutionary combatants departed to begin the guerrilla struggle in Cuba.

Cuban Ambassador to Mexico, Marcos Rodríguez, Veracruz’s Governor Cuitláhuac García Jiménez, Senator Gloria Sánchez, and Tuxpan’s Mayor José Manuel Pozos attended the ceremony on Monday. They also participated in a tribute to the Apostle of Cuban independence, José Martí, who was the mastermind of the attack on the Moncada Garrison.

In his words of gratitude for such an event, Ambassador Rodríguez praised the reproduction of the Granma yacht obtained by Antonio del Conde, known as El Cuate, with great haste and exquisite quality by Cuban sculptors with the support of Mexican workers.

On behalf of the Cuban Government and people, the diplomat thanked Mexico for this work and said that the Granma yacht is ready to sail again, just like its original yacht, located on Avenida de las Misiones in Havana. That is why Mexico was once again present at this commemoration.

He coincidentally recalled that Fidel made another trip like this one on November 25 and had to return to the Granma yacht; his departure could not be just any day because only great men decide when to leave and how to continue fighting.

This time, Fidel would not leave Tuxpan or sail to Cuba; he would sail to immortality. That is why he is here with us today; his imperishable image will continue to guide us in that friendship between Mexico and Cuba, Rodríguez added.
