Cuba stages last May Day parade under Castro

Cuba stages last May Day parade under CastroMillions of Cubans rallied in May Day parades Monday, the last to be overseen by President Raul Castro — and the first without his late brother and revolutionary predecessor Fidel. The rallies filled Havana’s Revolution Square and other spots across the country in a sea of red, white and blue national flags and giant portraits of Fidel Castro. Traditionally a day of protest and defense of workers’ rights worldwide, the May Day rally in communist Cuba is unusual in being a march in support of the authorities.
