This inscription enshrined Comrade Norah as one of the greatest communists in the history of Peru and an example for all communists and proletarian revolutionaries on Earth.

HONOR AND GLORY TO COMRADE NORAH!

Firm marxist-leninist-maoist, Gonzalo thought and anti-revisionist; founder of the Red Faction and great historical director — an example of giving one‘s life for the Party and the revolution. A daughter of the people and the international proletariat. A blazing red flag, flying defiantly against the wind.

THE GREATEST HERO OF THE PARTY AND THE REVOLUTION!
