Jose Marti: Relaunch of the War of Independence

Relaunch of the War of IndependenceToday we recall the events that led to the second war of independence in Cuba; a date which has been recorded in Cuban History as the Baire Outcry.

On February 24, 1895, Cuba’s National Hero Jose Marti called on a new war to rid Cuba of Spanish colonial rule.

Jose Marti died in Cuba shortly after the beginning of the 1895 war. He was shot in combat, in the eastern region, in an area called Dos Rios/two rivers, in the now province of Santiago de Cuba. Forty days prior to his death, he had written a letter to his beloved child María Mantilla, the daughter of close friends in Guatemala. That was the last letter he ever wrote:

“[…] Let others indulge in the frivolous world; you are worth more. Smile and walk by. And if you do not see me ever again, do as the little boy in the burial of Frank Sorzano: put a book […] on my tomb stone; or, on your chest; because that’s where I’ll be buried if I happen to die where men would not know. Work. A kiss. And wait for me. Yours, Marti.”

And to Jose Marti we say: we’re not waiting for you, because you’re always among us, in our daily efforts, in the right to human dignity, in the smiles of our children. You are here in the perpetuity of what has been achieved, because you are an everlasting treasure; you are like an idea that sheds light, like a sprouting seed in the early morning sun illuminating this land. (Nora Rodríguez Calzadilla)
