Cuba remembers Julio Antonio Mella 95 years after his death

Miguel Díaz-Canel, First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and President of the Republic, recalled the legacy of the young revolutionary Julio Antonio Mella, 95 years after his death.

In X, the head of state recalled the phrase «Muero por la Revolución!», the last words of the outstanding fighter when he was assassinated in Mexico, on January 10, 1929.

Julio Antonio Mella, the Cuban who did more in less time, as defined by Commander-in-Chief Fidel Castro, declared Díaz-Canel.

On the same social network, Esteban Lazo Hernández, president of the National Assembly of People’s Power, described Mella as the most worthy of Cuba’s sons and a paradigm for new generations.

Salvador Valdés Mesa, vice president of the Republic, commemorated the date and highlighted the values of the man who was a leader and anti-imperialist, creator of the Anti-Imperialist League of Cuba and co-founder of the First Marxist-Leninist Party of our country.

Mella was assassinated, by orders of dictator Gerardo Machado, while walking with his companion Tina Modotti, on January 10, 1929, just two months shy of his 26th birthday.

At that time, the young man was in full preparation for the expedition that would take him from Mexico to Cuba to join the armed struggle.

Mella’s ashes were taken to Havana on September 29, 1933 and since 1976 they rest in Mella Square, a monument in his name located in San Lazaro Street, at the foot of the steps of the University of Havana.
