Neither dead nor forgotten


The words on the billboard are from Fidel Castro's defense during his October 1953 trial. He said:
Mis compañeros, además, no están ni olvidados ni muertos; viven hoy más que nunca y sus matadores han de ver aterrorizados cómo surge de sus cadáveres heróicos el espectro victorioso de sus ideas.
Translation:
My colleagues also are neither dead nor forgotten; they live now more than ever and their murderers must be terrified to see how the victorious spectrum of their ideas surges from their bodies.
