(Taken from the Facebook of Oriol Marrero, counselor Embacuba Greece) Athens, March 15. Last night during the ninth public presentation of the monograph José Martí and “the Greek” held in Athens and sponsored by the Parnassos Association of Philologists, we remembered that just yesterday (March 14), the 130th anniversary of the creation by José Martí of the newspaper Homeland (Patria), date on which, not by chance, the Cuban Press Day is celebrated. Martí also spoke in that important newspaper about Greece and its struggles. There were exciting moments in last night's presentation, as in the preceding eight: as in Lefkada, in the War Museum of Athens, in the House of Arts and Letters in Veria, in the University of Kalamata, in the University of Volos, at the Russian Center for Science and Arts in Athens, in the city of Heraclius (Crete, the largest island in Greece) and at the University of Ioánnina, the capital of Epirus. Thank you for the words of solidarity and love towards Cuba, its people and its historical struggles, towards the life and work of Martí, towards the heroic resistance of millions of Cubans. Last night, as in previous meetings, interesting interventions and references were heard by writers, philologists, editors, journalists, ambassadors, professors, poets and art critics, as well as other participants, about texts that are part of the unfinished work José Martí and “the Greek”. Everyone is deeply thanked for reading the book and its words, and above all for highlighting and strengthening with their presence and senses the solid cultural, friendly and human bridges that unite the peoples of Cuba and Greece, and that find in Martí its greatest exponent because José Martí was and is the best Cuban friend of Greece and of “what is Greek”, because he was inspired by their struggles, history and culture, without glare, imitations, or biases. The unforgettable night of Martí in Parnassos was crowned by Greek actresses, poets and virtuoso musicians, who had the gesture of giving successful musicalizations of works by José Martí and other Cuban poets. Among the musicians, the virtuoso and renowned Hellenic philharmonicist Manos Avarakis, considered, if not the most, one of the most brilliant performers of this instrument in the country. It was said that March 2022 has been the coldest month of the last decade in Greece, and last night was particularly cold in Athens. However, once again it was proven in Parnassos that the love between the peoples of Cuba and Greece resists the tests of climate, circumstances, and time. Thanks to the Association of Parnassos Philologists, and to so many thousands of friends who make it possible. Thank you for loving the life and work of the Cuban National Hero, as much as he himself loved Greece and “what is Greek”. "Love is paid with love".
