MIAMI (AP) — Protesters waving flags and chanting "Obama, traitor!" are gathering for a demonstration against the president plan to normalize relations with the Castro government.
More than two dozen exile groups are participating in the Saturday protest. As speeches began, a couple hundred people had shown up, mostly older Cuban-Americans.
Many carried Cuban flags or wore shirts with the flag displayed. Some carried U.S. flags, or both U.S. and Cuban flags. There were several chants, among them: "No more flights to Cuba!" and "Viva Cuba libre!"
About five women held a large sign proclaiming: "Obama's message to Castro: Imprison Americans and get 3 spies and an embassy"
Miami is no stranger to protests from the Cuban community, though they've become smaller and more sporadic.
