Rally in Cuba marks May Day

Hundreds of thousands of Cubans are attending a May Day parade in Havana honoring the world’s workers.

President Raul Castro, who succeeded his ailing brother Fidel in February, is attending the celebrations. He did not address the crowds. Raul Castro, 76, has introduced a series of reforms since becoming the leader of the Communist state. But he has also made it clear that there will be no political reforms to the one-party system.

Oh man, May Day with ten hours speech from Fidel? Will never be the same again!
