Granma sculpture unveiled in Mexico

Granma reports that a beautiful sculpture that replicates the Granma yacht was unveiled in Tuxpan, Veracruz, Mexico. The Granma yacht is a symbol of the Cuban Revolution, as it was the vessel that transported Fidel Castro and 82 revolutionary combatants from Mexico to Cuba in November 1956.

The sculpture was created by Cuban sculptors with the support of Mexican workers and was unveiled in the presence of Cuban Ambassador to Mexico, Marcos Rodríguez, Veracruz’s Governor Cuitláhuac García Jiménez, Senator Gloria Sánchez, and Tuxpan’s Mayor José Manuel Pozos. The sculpture was praised for how quickly it was created and its high quality.

Tuxpan, Veracruz, is the place from where Fidel Castro and his comrades departed to begin the guerrilla struggle in Cuba.
