Cuba holds massive May Day parade

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel and retired leader Raul Castro headed a huge march in Havana where hundreds of thousands of Cubans lined the streets of the capital waving banners and pictures of Cuban revolutionary leaders, local media reported. May Day marches in Cuba are rife with symbolism, a celebration of the 63-year-old Cuban revolution and a government-led rebuke of the Cold War-era embargo imposed on the island by the US.
