New York Times ran this article in Spanish and English on protests in Cuba with this image, which the paper claimed was of an anti-government protest. In fact, it is a march in Havana in support of the revolution! In the baseball cap behind the Cuban flag is Gerardo Hernández, a well-known leader of the Committees in Defense of the Revolution and one of the Cuban 5, who spent 16 years in prison in the U.S., framed up for his work helping to stop terrorist attacks on Cuba.
