In several places in Cuba, the cult of the Cuban dictator acquires different dimensions.

Last year, the political organization Proyecto Nuestra América honored him with a march from El Quijote park on the central 23rd avenue of the capital, to the Malecón, where they launched a symbolic Granma yacht made by the artist Kcho, but the alleged homage didn’t work.

The yacht replica it was thrown into the sea in the middle of a wave that, together with the blowing wind, turned the model of the boat, made with cardboard and recyclable materials, upside down.

Castro’s supporters don’t stop making a fool of themselves. Despite the fact that the dictator warned that he did not want his personality cult to be carried out in Cuba after his death, his will has been and continues to be ignored.

At the beginning of the year, Sancti Spíritus commemorated the arrival to this territory of the Freedom Caravan, in 1959, with the ride of a giant painting of Castro mounted on a military jeep.

Even supporters of the Cuban regime said they had recently seen the silhouette of the former ruler on a cloud that formed in the sky between Birán and Santiago de Cuba.
