This Order was created by proposal of the Ministry of the Revolutionary Armed Forces, whose representative in the Work groups, was in agreement with the use of this type of award.

In the 12 years since creation it has not yet been awarded. That is to say, nobody has been proposed to receive it.

That is one UGLY piece of metal! Completely atypical for all the other awards named after people to not have a portrait bust of the namesake person. Rather weird in that regard.

Thanks for the information that none have ever been awarded yet. :beer:

One does wonder what sort of "culture" is ACTUALLY meant, when this originated with the RAF.

Now we have a correct image of the Orden "Blas Roca" what is the award in the first post with the Orden "Blas Roca" ribbon.

Well.... it seems to say Solidarity and while I was checking the SNTECD site I found this image. So possibly a Trade Union solidarity award/badge. It depicts the Plaza de la Revolution in Havana.

The photo shows the tower on Liberation Square, the English name used on Cuban sites

Regards Eddie.

May be the first image is "Orden de la Solidaridad"?

Might well be yes :D

No real Information right now on that Order.

It was awarded postum to Alavo Paim the founder of the Brazilian Workers Party in Rio Grande and the Democratic Workers Party. For support and assistance during the blockade/ trade embargo. And contribution to the forming of the Brazil-Cuba parlimentary group.

Regards Eddie.
