HAVANA TIMES, Sept. 22 – While the significance of the all-afternoon concert on Sunday in Cuba’s Revolution Square continues to generate commentary, Havana Times offers our readers a close look at some of the over a million Cubans and foreign visitors that made it to the plaza despite the burning sun.

Articles on the concert have already been published by several of our writers -Alfredo Prieto, Irina Echarry, Armando Chaguaceda as well as Dalia Acosta from IPS- and more will be doing so in the coming days and weeks.

Meanwhile, as the “Peace without Borders” concert took place in Havana and was broadcast internationally, deposed Honduran President Manuel Zelaya was peacefully returning to his country, even though it meant sneaking in with help from his supporters.

Hopefully, the Honduran military-which seized power on June 28 in the Central American country-listened to the call for world peace from Cuba and will refrain from more of the violence and repression that has characterized their reign for the last nearly three months.

For now, just sit back and enjoy the photos taken by photographers Caridad and Elio Delgado.

    As a Cuban American I feel sorry for all those capture under a criminal regine that for the first time and with many restrictions allows for an event such us this. The island closed to international relations by the comunist regime and free press demostrated that something as regular as a concert can become an international event. Lets not be blind sided Cuban or not this communist regime didn’t allowed for this event to take place for the people of Cuba but for their own political gains.
