CAMAGÜEY.- Just on February 24, 1880 José Martí speaks to the Cuban of the emigration in Steck Hall of New York to value what happened in the War of Ten Years and to argue the imperious character of a new stage of struggle, moment from which it turns into the organizer of the Necessary War.

Our Apostle was saying then: "The big rights are not bought by tears, - but with blood …: What shaded future that one of our land if we leave its effort the brave ones that fight, and we do not congregate to help, with the same eager willingness and breaths with which it is they who congregate to fight! (…) Before moving back in the determination to make the homeland free and prosperous, the sea of the South will join the sea of the North, and there will be born a snake of an egg of eagle”.

Fourteen years of intense chore, of touching friendly doors and of receiving the scorn of others, of dedicating hopes in the unit of the old and new pines, until on April 10, 1892 he proclaims the constitution of the Cuban Revolutionary Party, to achieve beyond the independence of the proper homeland, that of Puerto Rico, and to alert the Americas on the “scorn of the neighbor … that it is the biggest danger, against which it is necessary to walk in tight picture, like the silver in the roots of the Andes”.

On February 24, 1895 the concision of his dreams was beginning, there was opened a new page of the Cuban Revolution, initiated by Carlos Manuel de Céspedes on October 10, 1868, in that, although it was weighing very much the trace of the colonial boot, the souls were cheering up, the hearts were getting excited.

Men as Antonio Maceo, Máximo Gómez, Calixto García, Salvador Cisneros Betancourt … come to called of Martí.

To arrange the one that also comes out like the Revolution of the decorum, just a little more than one month later is signed the Manifesto of Montecristi, document where the continuity of the exploit remained explicit, and the intention of which as soon as the independence is achieved the Republic would be done with all and for the good of all.

In the historical analysis of the Cuban Revolution presented in the Central Report to the First Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, it is indicated that no people of America fought in so hard and difficult conditions for its independence, with its own forces, without the participation of any other state of the Continent and with the constant hostility of the government of the United States.

Beautiful pages were written during the contest, as sad there were the moments that took it to its end.

The quoted document reflects the grand, heroic and lucky of the course of the history that freed our homeland and its inhabitants of the terrible destination of being absorbed by the United States, which was, essentially, due to the energetic resolution of the Cuban not to be submitted, and to the blood rivers with which it conquered its right to preserve the nationality.

On February 24, 1960, our Commander for Chief Fidel Castro was valuing the extract of the transcendental pro-independence process:

“A revolution is not a simple event in the history of a people. A revolution is a complex and difficult fact and that has, also, the virtue of being a big teacher, because it is teaching us on the march, and on the march it is strengthening the conscience of the people, and on the march it is teaching us what a revolution is”.

Saying like that, many pages stay still for registering in our history, as it is necessary to recall so many people day-by-day, especially in the legacy of the Martí´s and Fidel´s thought.
