José Martí, a man who did his duty, is honored in Vietnam (+Photos)

Hanoi, Jan 28 (Prensa Latina) 170 years after his birth, Cubans and Vietnamese gathered on Saturday at the Tao Dan central park-garden to pay tribute to José Martí, a man who knew how to fulfill his duty.

José Martí´s bust was erected in here 20 years ago to make good his saying “to honor, honors”, said Cuban Ambassador Orlando Hernández Guillén, who reviewed José Martí´s in-depth revolutionary work.

We´re talking about José Martí, Guillén said, and it is also essential to talk about the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro, his best disciple and greatest exponent of the Centennial Generation, the one that knew how to put into practice Martí´s doctrines and exalted his saying: the Homeland needs sacrifices. It is a plough and not a pedestal.

At the ceremony, Le Tuy Truyen, vice president of the Vietnam-Cuba Friendship Association, recalled his years as journalism student at the Central University of Las Villas Marta Abreu, where he wrote his first article dedicated precisely to José Martí.

Tuy Truyen also praised what he considered a fortunate decision, that of erecting the bust in memory of the independence hero in a place where, to this day, it remains escorted by seven royal palms, the most common tree in the Cuban countryside.
