José Martí to be honored in Venezuela with multiple events (+Photo)

Caracas, Jan 17 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelans will hold multiple political and cultural events to honor Cuban National Hero José Martí on the 143rd anniversary of his arrival in this country and his 171st birthday, on January 28, 1853.

Yhonny García, national coordinator of the Venezuela-Cuba Friendship and Mutual Solidarity Movement, told Prensa Latina that the first of these dates will be remembered this year with “a broad agenda.”

On January 19, 1881, the Cuban Apostle landed at Puerto Cabello, in Carabobo state, in the northern center of the country, and the following day, at night, he embarked, and at dawn on January 21, he arrived at Puerto de la Guaira.

Garcia pointed out that year after year, young Venezuelans and Cubans have recreated the trip of the politician and revolutionary that took him to the equestrian statue of Simon Bolivar in Caracas, where without dusting himself off, he honored the Liberator.

He added that they will recall his six-month in Venezuela, a period during which he worked as a teacher of oratory and literature at the Santa Maria College in Caracas, where orphans and children with few resources were admitted.

He announced a mobilization from La Guaira state to Caracas, where several events will be held to express the participants’ commitment to Bolivar’s ideas and thinking.
