Cuba commemorates this the 125th anniversary of the resumption of the independence struggles on February 24, 1895, and the first year of the approval of its new Constitution.

The beginning of the so-called Necessary War, organized by the National Hero Jose Marti, represented for Cuba the path to achieve the definitive independence of the Spanish metropolis.

Also known as Grito de Baire (the Cry of Baire), the insurrection gave continuity to the Ten Years' War (1868-1878) after a period of truce (1878-1895) that allowed Martí and other prominent figures to articulate the movement that broke out in 1895.

However, the victory of the Cubans was truncated by the intervention of the United States in the conflict in 1898, giving way to a neocolonial stage: Cuba passed from the hands of Spain to the dependence of the northern nation.

That period ended with the definitive triumph on January 1, 1959, led by Fidel Castro, who referred several times to the Cuban Revolution as one, which began in October 1868.

On his Twitter account, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel urged the island's young people to study everything Marti said or wrote about the objectives of that struggle.
