 The Crisis in Cuba is causing public panic. Yesterday until late hours there were long lines in front of the stores. Many products such as oil, sugar, salt, etc. were sold out. In all workplaces party meetings accepted a resolution supporting Cuba and denouncing the US.


On a wall across from the American embassy someone wrote: “1939-Hitler 1962-Kennedy.”


In the American embassy they expect a demonstration in front of their gate.
