President Miguel Diaz-Canel and historic revolutionary leader Raul Castro headed the huge march in Havana along the Paseo Ave. at the Revolution Square. Popular celebrations with music, drinks and food have been organized in parks and other public sites of Havana.

The main slogan this year is “Cuba Lives and Work” that in social media goes with the hashtag #CubaLivesAndWork.

Celebrations this year are particularly dedicated to health personnel and women and men of Science for their extraordinary hard work fighting against the pandemic. A 50,000-strong block of doctors, medical scientists and students, nurses and other health staff headed the march in Havana.
