In summary, our people, your history is the heroic one and unfading striggle of the popular masses; it's the struggle for the bread for your children, for the education, which clears the minds and makes them more conscious, for your conquered rights and liberties for the price of your blood, for the marching revolution, thriving for definitive emancipation, for the destruction of the old and rotten system of dominance, and definitely for the creation and forging of the new world for your sons, by your armed hands.
