Cuba Dreamed the Dream

The Generation of the Centenary proclaimed “We will be martyrs or we will be free.” From the shores of Tuxpan, Mexico, the 84 dreamers set sail on the Gramna.

The gold coins and the armored train of the mightiest empire on earth were not enough to stop the Dream. They had no morals, only their greed.

A new dawn was witnessed by the whole world on January First, 1959. The flag of victory was red and black.

DARE TO DREAM!


Do you hear the people sing?


"Do You Hear The People Sing?"

[Enjolras:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

[Combeferre:]
Will you join in our crusade?
Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade
Is there a world you long to see?

[Courfeyrac:]
Then join in the fight
That will give you the right to be free!

[All:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes!

[Feuilly:]
Will you give all you can give
So that our banner may advance
Some will fall and some will live
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France!

[All:]
Do you hear the people sing?
Singing a song of angry men?
It is the music of a people
Who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart
Echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start
When tomorrow comes
