On May 1, 1961, Fidel Castro officially abolished multiparty elections and declared that Cuba was a socialist state. Castro stated that, “The revolution has no time for elections. There is no more democratic government in Latin America than the revolutionary government.” Really?! A BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) journalist reported that Castro’s revolution seems to be popular with the 99% – but not the wealthier classes whose land and property were confiscated. The announcement was made shortly after Castro’s victory at the disastrous US-led Bay of Pigs invasion. (Photo by BBC)
