May Day protest in Cuba?

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a while now. There’s been some buzz on the net about a protest to be held on May Day in Cuba. People who want change in Cuba (specifically to the regime’s travel ban -Cubans are not allowed to leave and return to their country freely) are being asked to bang their pots and pans.

May 1st is like a sacred holiday for communists, especially in Cuba where they still have those old fashioned military parades to showcase the might of the revolution. I don’t know how many people will actually bang their pots and pans on the appointed day but it’s worth mentioning and promoting. These are the things that Cubans can do for themselves. They need to break through the silence of the international media and start attempting to do things in large numbers.
