Cuba Will Ban Monuments Named After Fidel Castro

Fidel castro statuteCuban President Raul Castro declared that his government will not allow the naming of streets or public monuments after Cuba’s former leader, Fidel Castro, keeping with his brother’s desire to avoid a personality cult. In fact, the country’s National Assembly will pass a law fulfilling his brother’s wishes. Conversely, some revolutionary fighters who fought alongside Fidel have their likeness spread across Cuba. This announcement comes at the tail end of Fidel’s four-day public mourning period.
