The tornado that ripped through Havana on Sunday has left four people dead and more than 190 injured. The storm also left a path of utter destruction through a crumbling and fragile city already devastated by six decades of socialism. As the photos above and below illustrate, Sunday’s tornado has left countless Cubans homeless and most have lost what little possessions they had.
(See more photos of the devastation in Havana at Quartz.)
So what was the Castro dictatorship’s first response to this deadly and devastating disaster? The Cuban regime thought the most important thing to do after this deadly disaster was to organize a propaganda march through Havana (complete with torches) led by dictator Raul Castro and his puppet president, Miguel Diaz-Canel.
While the Castro regime cannot provide aid, shelter, or food to Cubans ravaged by the tornado, they can afford to supply hundreds of torches for the participants to make the most of their propaganda march.
