“My greetings to the brother Cuban people, to Raul (Castro) and (Miguel) Diaz-Canel, with whom we are united by the supreme values ​​of brotherhood and union of the Apostle of the Independence of Cuba, Jose Marti, 127 years after his passage to immortality, I reaffirm my commitment to his worthy libertarian legacy,” the president wrote on his Twitter account.

On Thursday, Cuba commemorates the fall in combat of the organizer of the last stage of the struggle against Spanish colonialism in 1895. Martí was also a poet, essayist, journalist and founder of the Cuban Revolutionary Party, an undisputed guide of the emancipation process, who died in the plains of Dos Rios, in eastern Cuba, in his first combat.

His early death was a heavy blow to the struggle restarted on February 24, 1895, but his emancipatory, Latin Americanist and anti-imperialist legacy has transcended Cuba’s struggles for its definitive independence.

He is considered the most universal Cuban, since his work went beyond the borders of his time and the country, becoming the greatest Latin American political thinker of the 19th century.

At the age of 42, he left a vast written work, translated into several languages ​​and known throughout the world.
