democracy, political and economic freedom, that is "with everyone
and for the good of every one" Republic of Cuba. Therefore, the
primary goals are as follows:
Let the "Unique Marti’s ideals" be known,
not to use for our benefit, but to use as a doctrine, because
Marti is on our side and he teaches us the way.

freedom and Cuba’s independence, always preaching Marti’s
Create an adequate working environment and provide the experience
which will aid the moral, political and economic evolution
of Cuba for it to develop its industry, mainly its agriculture,
and for Cuba to trade with all the world and not with a part
of the world, as Marti dreamed.
Promote political and economic ideas for the decentralization
of the Cuban economy pursuant to the guidelines of the world
Promote a rapid change in way of life for the Cuban population,
without discrimination of any kind and without useless sacrifices.
