Havana, Feb 24.- The president of Cuba, Miguel Díaz- Canel, today recalled the restart of the independence feats in Cuba 126 years ago and described this February 24 as a day to tell and sing history.
Through his official Twitter account, regarding the anniversary, the president recalled the words of the Cuban National Hero, José Martí, and subscribed: from loving past glories, strength is drawn to acquire new glories.
In other tweets also on this day, Díaz- Canel highlighted the spirit of patriotism and assured that history invades us with its force.
Beloved Cuba. Only those who can do without your light and your essences, deny the honorable sacrifice that consecrates your life. What an honor to serve you in difficult hours! He wrote.
Likewise, he ratified the validity of Marti's phrase to the Cuban patriot and conspirator Juan Gualberto Gómez before the uprising of February 24, 1895: we will conquer all justice and said that this will be without tiring us.
The process known as War of 95 or Necessary was organized by José Martí from the emigration to achieve the definitive independence of the Caribbean country from Spain.
The date marked the beginning of a new stage in the fight, also led by veteran combatants Máximo Gómez and Antonio Maceo.
According to historians, the ideals of sovereignty would only reach their successful culmination on January 1, 1959, with the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. (Text and photo: PL)
