On his Twitter account, the president recalled both events and wrote, “From those roots springs the solid trunk of the nation.”
In the Assembly of Guaimaro, delegates from the East, the Center (Camagüey) and the Revolutionary Board of Las Villas gave life to the first legal statute in Cuba’s republican to organize the country as an independent political State.
The Constitution was structured in 29 articles, in which it clarified the country’s segmentation into four states with the power to send equal representatives to the Chamber.
The text established the requirement to elect and be elected, recognized the condition of free man to all Cuban inhabitants, as well as the duty and right to be soldiers of the Liberation Army, together with other civil guarantees.
More than two decades after that event and supported by the first patriotic associations, Cuban National Hero Jose Marti created the Cuban Revolutionary Party (PRC) on April 10, 1892, with the main objective of achieving Cuba’s absolute independence.
According to historical documents, among the decisive moments of that organization was the election of its only officials: Delegate (Marti) and Treasurer (Benjamin Guerra).
The PRC united the patriots who once again fought against Spanish colonialism in Cuba and collected resources for the war.
