At 8am on Monday, November 28, senior leaders of the Revolution performed a ceremonial guard in honor of Comandante en Jefe of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro Ruz, in the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces’ Granma Hall, where the Comandante’s ashes will remain before being taken to the Santiago de Cuba’s Santa Ifigenia Cemetery.

A minute of silence, presided by Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, was held in honor of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution.

Raúl was the first to approach the memorial, placing a white rose in front of the urn; after which he signed the book containing the oath to the concept of the Revolution as articulated by Fidel on May 1, 2000.

Later Comandantes of the Revolution Ramiro Valdés Menéndez and Guillermo García Frías paid their respects to the eternal leader; followed by the remaining members of the Party Central Committee Political Bureau in a gesture reaffirming their revolutionary commitment to continuing the ideas of our Comandante.
