  • Description

    Three hundred Havana University students, headed by Major Rolando Cubela, President of the Havana University Student Federation, accompanied by several cows and a bull, marched to the United States Embassy in Havana, December 4 to protest against the killing of a cow, by fragments of the U.S. space rocket that fell in Oriente Province November 30.

    The students marched from the University to the Embassy shouting "Cuba, yes! Yankees, no!". "Go home, Yankees!" "With cows or without cows, we will win".

    The cows bore placards reading: "We condemn the use of atomic arms to kill cows." "The cow is accused by the United States of being a Communist agent". The bull wore a pasteboard sign reading: "If you continue killing cows, you will have to face us: the bulls." And one cow bore the sign: "Eisenhower has murdered one of my sisters: Kennedy".
