The first secretary of the Communist Party of Villa, Osnay Miguel Colina, expressed in the central words that the people of Santa Clara is honored to receive the remains of those combatants, who from now on will rest in this historical site where the remains of Commander Ernesto Guevara and his comrades of the guerrilla in Bolivia in 1967 also rest.
