Members of the Red Protagónica Observatorio Crítico in Havana, Cuba joined the main Mayday march, with banners promoting grassroots organisation and an end to bureaucracy, claiming that real socialism is democracy, as well as distributing a letter. A week before the march, the collective had organised a public event, promoting the libertarian origins of Mayday. After the demonstration, some of the contingent convoked an impromptu rumba in a city centre square, as marchers stopped to dance to their African drum rhythms.
