CUBAN EXILES CONTINUE THEIR PROTESTS IN MIAMI TODAY... DESPITE POLICE WARNINGS... CUBAN EXILES OF ALL AGES CONTINUE PROTESTING THE PLAN. ABOUT A DOZEN OLDER DEMONSTRATORS WENT TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI TODAY CAUSING A RUCKUS DURING GRADUATION CEREMONIES. AND AT CORAL GABLES SENIOR HIGH -- CLOSE TO A 100 STUDENTS HELD A MORE VOCAL PROTEST -- WAVING CUBAN FLAGS AND SIGNS -- DEMANDING LIBERTY FOR CUBA.
A YOUNGER GENERATION MAKES THEIR VOICES HEARD. HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS FROM CORAL GABLES HIGH SCHOOL TAKING TO THE STREETS ... WAVING CUBAN FLAGS ... CHANTING THAT SOMETHING BE DONE ABOUT THE CURRENT SITUATION IN CUBA. THIS ALL HAPPENING BEFORE CLASS, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC. THESE YOUNG CUBAN-AMERICAN PROTESTED IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE REST OF THE EXILE COMMUNITY. GLAD .. THEY SAY ... THEY WERE ABLE TO GET THEIR MESSAGE ACROSS. A FEW BLOCKS AWAY OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY OF MIAMI CAMPUS... PROTESTERS GREETING THOSE ON THEIR WAY TO THIS SEMESTER'S GRADUATION CEREMONY. DOZENS UPSET AT CESAR GAVIRIA, SECRETARY GENERAL OF THE ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATIONS AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF COLOMBIA... THERE TO RECEIVE AN HONORARY DOCTORATE DEGREE FROM THE UNIVERSITY. PROTESTERS SAY GAVIRIA HAS STRONG TIES WITH CASTRO AND HAS FOUGHT MANY TIMES TO LIFT THE U-S EMBARGO ON CUBA. BUT INSIDE ... THE GRADUATION CONTINUED AS SCHEDULED. ORGANIZERS SAY THEY REALIZE THEY ARE ANNOYING SOME PEOPLE, BUT INSIST THAT ISN'T THE INTENT. THEY'RE JUST TRYING TO CONVEY A MESSAGE TO THE WHITE HOUSE. AND IF THEY'RE CONDITIONS ARE MET ... THEY SAY ... IT WOULD STOP THE MASSIVE RALLIES.
