Cuba recalls legacy of Mariana Grajales

Havana, Jul 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Wednesday paid tribute to Mariana Grajales (so-called Mother of the Homeland) on the 208th anniversary of her birth.

The Cuban leader recalled the ¨Mother of the Homeland¨ definition by the Cuban National Hero José Martí as he expressed, “And if anyone trembled, when the enemy of his country was going to come to his front, he would see Maceo’s mother with her handkerchief on her head, and his trembling would be over!” “So are also Cuban women, daughters of the Mother of the Homeland. All honor to her,” Diaz-Canel added on Twitter.

Cuban Prime Minister Manuel Marrero, on the other hand, tweeted: “Our tribute to Mariana Grajales, the mother of the Maceo family, an example of a woman and a Cuban brave patriot devoted to the cause of seeing Cuba free.

Likewise, the Secretary of Organization of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) Roberto Morales also posted on twitter: Mariana was described as tender and kind, but inflexible in discipline.
