The CDRs emerged on September 28, 1960 at the initiative of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, as a mass organization aimed at mobilizing the people around the defense of the Revolution and the conquests of socialism.
They bring together the vast majority of the population over 14 years of age and wish to work for the benefit of the community, and have structures throughout the national territory, both in rural and urban areas.
The cederista nuclei are formed based on the place of residence and actively participate in supporting the activities and social programs developed in the area. (ACN)
