Every year new singer songwriters from all over the country called by the Hermanos Saíz Association (AHS) go on a pilgrimage along a street to a sacred place where a permanent tribute is paid to four young fighters of the 26thof July Movement who accidentally lost their lives in the heat of revolutionary struggles, two years before the final triumph.

And the whole peoplejoined them, because August 4 is the Day of the Guantanamo martyrs. A new generation of singers, and their guests from the "old trova" and other artistic manifestations, left from the headquarters of the AHS until the obelisk of the Aguilera street, and there they sang first and foremost to the country, and to the commitment with those who died for it.

Thus ended the 41stDay of the Political Song, which for four days was reaffirmed as the most important political and cultural event of this territory of the East of Cuba, and which is always accompanied by the main leaders of the Party and the Government here.

With their singingthe young artists joined the people to the relatives of the Guantanamo martyrs and internationalists who fought alongside Che in the Congo, in a popular act in which more than a dozen workers of outstanding career, and young people received the Party membership cards.

The event, having a strong revolutionary commitment, stamped on the Guantánamo youth and on those who visit the province this summer, the certainty of a Cuban renewed movement, that could show their art in dissimilar public spaces of the city and its surroundings.

Through the interesting Che Tricontinental exhibition, donated by the Organization of Solidarity of the Peoples From Africa, Asia and Latin America to the Porch Gallery of the AHS of Guantánamo, a tributewas dedicated to Ernesto Guevara´s life in this event on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his fall in combatand whose inauguration was attended by Dr. Aleida Guevara March, daughter of the guerrilla.
