Havana, Jan 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuban youth will pay homage to National Hero Jose Marti on the 164th anniversary of his birth with various activities, including the central ceremony to be held on January 28th at the Museum Fragua Martiana.As a tribute to the 147 years of the imprisonment of Jose Marti in the old quarries of San Lazaro and to the 65th anniversary of the creation of the museum at this site, children, young people and adults will honor the life and work of Jose Marti through the Movimiento Juvenil Martiano and the University of Havana.
Josuam Palacios, director of the museum Fragua Martiana, told the Prensa Latina news agency that various political and cultural activities to honor Marti will be carried out throughout the year, seeking to foster Marti’s stamp from his own thinking on the cultural and patriotic formation of Cuban youth.
That is the aim of the Fragua Martiana, particularly since US President Barack Obama urged the Cuban population to forget history.
Palacios said that Cuban young people should be taught as patriots, as good citizens and of course, promote the anti-imperialist awareness of Marti in them, so crucial nowadays.
For this, the Museum has scheduled activities such as talks, master lectures and the launching of the book ‘Entre espinas, flores. Anecdotario’, by Professor Carlos Manuel Marchante.
The workshop, ‘Marti en las artes visuales’, the panel ‘Marti y Fidel, arquitectos de la Revolucion’, the master lecture ‘Patria es humanidad’ as well as the event ‘La esperanza del mundo’ are scheduled in the program.
The central ceremony for the 164th anniversary of Marti’s birth and the 65th anniversary of the Museum Fragua Martiana will be hosted next January 28th at the institution’, said Palacios.
