NBC News reports that “eighteen days before Donald Trump is to be sworn in as U.S. president, Cuba held a military parade and a ‘fighting people’s march’ in their nation’s capital.”

“The events took place on Monday morning at the capital’s Plaza de la Revolución “on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Granma expedition’s landing and the heroic uprising in Santiago de Cuba,” according to the government’s statement, marking the start of the Cuban revolution six decades earlier.”

“The military parade was headed by Cuban children from elementary schools and it was made up of just troops without military assets. The march was led by blocs of Cuban young people, for whom the political and military event was to whom the official Cuban newspaper Granma was ‘also dedicated.'”
