The Manifesto Montecristi by Jose Marti (Full Text)./ Annotated by Atidem Aroha.
by Jose Marti.
José Julián Martí y Pérez was born in Havana, Cuba on January 28, 1853. He is one of the most renowned writers in the history of Cuba and Latin America. He essentially devoted his life to the cause of independence and to the foundation of a new Cuban nation. As we perceive in the Montecristi Manifesto, Martí was a talented humanist, born out of time, he projected a future path for building the Cuban nation after independence from Spain, leaving a legacy on Cuban affairs. His Panamericanism was framed on the idea of cultural origin and differences with the United States.
As a philosopher, he attempted to navigate through the intricate mountings of thoughts. The Montecristi Manifesto, as it is known in Cuban history, declared the revolution began not in 1895, but in 1868, when the Grito de Yara was proclaimed by Carlos Manuel de Céspedes and the Ten Years War (1868-78) against Spanish domination took place.
