The people and Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, ratifies the historical importance of the uprising in the Demajagua, as the cradle of the struggle for independence of the Cuban people on October 10, 1868, a fact that demonstrated the patriotic sentiment and independence ideals of the Cuban people.
