An act had been organized in the recently created Heroes Park, which could not be carried out due to the threat of Tropical Storm Gonzalo to Barbados, so the act changed to a special program on CBC-8 television channel. in which the Ambassador of Barbados to CARICOM, David Comissiong (organizer of the event on behalf of the Clement Payne Movement), the Ambassador of Cuba to Barbados, Sergio Jorge Pastrana, and the Minister of Culture of Barbados, the Honorable John KIng, spoke.. The program included a keynote speech by the Prime Minister of Barbados, the Honorable Mia Amor Mottley and speeches by the leaders of the two workers unions in Barbados, Senator Toni Moore, and Mrs. Delcia Burke, together with the participation of prominent Barbadian artists such as the Honorable His Excellency Anthony Mighty Gabby and the Praise Academy of Dance, along with the drums of the Israel Lovell Foundation.
For their part, Cuban collaborators, both from the Henry Reeve Brigade, and sports coaches, decided to organize, together with the diplomatic mission and representatives of Cuban residents and Barbadians graduates in Cuba, a brief but emotional and combative act in which the President of the Association of Cuban Residents, Yaima Payne, the Chief of the Henry Reeve Brigade, Dsymarelis Ortega and the Ambassador of Cuba, Sergio Jorge Pastrana, spoke.
After said brief act, a representation of the attendees moved to the Monument to the Martyrs of the Crime of Barbados in Paynes Bay, where as a conclusion of the commemoration, they deposited in that sacred Cuban corner in Barbados a floral offering in honor of all the martyrs of our Revolution.
