Desde esta escalinata En el Año 1893 José Martí Apóstol de la Libertad de Cuba
Con elocuentes palabras pidió a los tabaqueros Cubanos emigrados que le
ayudasen a conquistar la
independencia de su país, aportando hombres, armas y dinero.
Muchos obreros cambiaron la chaveta por el machete y otros donaron centenares de miles de pesos para
salvar de la opresión a un pueblo y crear la República de Cuba

[English Translation]
