Revolutionary fervour

Obama may have nudged the door open between Communist Cuba and the capitalist west, and tourist pesos are definitely encouraged in this once-unsullied economy. But no one is forgetting the revolutionary struggle. Statues, posters, murals and flags are everywhere - there's even a cut-out plasterboard Fidel Castro in the way into Cienfuegos. Che Guevara's image is what you see the most. He's more photogenic, and apparently Fidel discouraged Cubans using his image for billboards and statues, or renaming their streets and schools. (I heard he put in his will that he wanted to be left in peace, even after death.) 
But Fidel is still out there plenty (as you can see below) and there are also plenty of fists, guns, and uplifting slogans - you don't need to understand much Spanish to get the gist. Here are some favourites:

 Socialism or death - a popular catchphrase. This one isn't quite so catchy ...
