Miami's Little Havana Celebrates Castro's Death

cineman69/iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) — Thousands of people filled the streets of Miami’s Little Havana early Saturday morning to celebrate Fidel Castro’s death.

On Calle Ocho, the main thoroughfare of Little Havana, people waved Cuban flags in the air, banged on pots with spoons, and there were even fireworks. The joy of these revelers illustrates the disdain they had for the late communist leader.

“Cuba si! Castro no!” some chanted, while others screamed “Cuba libre!”

The celebrations, which were still going strong at 3 a.m., even prompted police to advise motorists to avoid the area.

Social media users posted videos that captured the joy shared by many in Miami’s Cuban-American community.
