Children of the Revolution, Havana, Cuba
A political rally for children in Habana. The Placa de la Revolucion was packed to celebrate the birthday of revolutionary hero José Martî. The square is notable for it's many political rallies. Fidel Castro has addressed more than a million Cubans here on many important occasions. When I arrived at the square a twelve year old boy was at the podium screeching out a firebrand speech against the evils of capitalism. Meanwhile the kids in the square enjoyed a day off of school.
