Cuban government cancels May Day parade amidst fuel shortages

Fuel shortages in Cuba has caused the government there to cancel its May Day parade.

In Cuba, every year, hundreds of thousands of people are bussed in from across the island to fill Havana’s Revolution Square on International Workers’ Day.

According to reports, the annual celebration is a big deal and this will mark the first time the 1959 revolution that the celebrations have been cancelled for economic reasons.

The communist country has been going through a petrol crisis in recent times with long queues at stations and motorists having to wait for many days before they could get petrol.

Cuba’s President Miguel Diaz-Canel said in early March that his country was only receiving two thirds of the fuel it needs

He said suppliers were also “failing to fulfil contractual obligations”
