The forces of the Rebel Army arrived in Camagüey on January 4, 1959. In the Plaza de la Caridad, the historical leader of the Revolution would say: “When today it crossed the streets of this city (…) it seemed that everything was an immense joy in the faces, and I thought (…) behind each face that rejoices, how many worries will there be? How many of those men and women who walk, overflowing with joy, how many will have jobs? How many will have a penny in your pocket? How many will have the assurance that if your son or a brother gets sick they will have something to buy medicine for? “I am sure that behind those faces of that humble man or woman, when the moment passes and they return home, the immense accumulation of concerns of each of them will return to their mind (…) Freedom is not everything. Freedom is the first part, it is the freedom to start having the right to fight. ”

And 61 years later, the inhabitants of the region of shepherds and hats, according to the National Poet of Cuba, Nicolás Guillén, will carry Cuban flags and from July 26 to ratify the commitment to defend the socialist social project and make the concept a reality Revolution expressed by Fidel Castro on May 1, 2000.
