Cubans everywhere celebrate José Martí
Today marks the 153rd anniversary of the birth of one of Cuba's greates hero, José Martí. Throughout Cuban communities in the USA solemn ceremonies will commemorate this event, children will read his poetry, sing and dance in his honor. In castro's Cuba thousands of pioneros will attend cumpulsory marches (not a Martí ideal), will wave Cuban flags and their fists in the air while shouting anti-American slogans, and give speeches comparing how much like Martí is the comandante in boots.
Although it is in Spanish, La Página de José Martí offers abundant information on Martí.
