Fidel Castro meets with Venezuelan lawyers

Fidel Castro shakes the hand of young Venezuelan lawyer

Fidel Castro met Saturday morning with a group of recently graduated Venezuelan lawyers. State-run Cuban television ran some video clips of the meeting, which lasted more than three hours. I don't recall seeing this much video of Castro talking in quite a while.

It is interesting that the former Cuban president chose to meet with Venezuelan lawyers and not Cubans. I wonder if any young Cubans object to that.

During the meeting, Castro spoke about global environmental problems and other matters. One of the lawyers promised to support Castro and defend his revolutionary ideals.

You can watch the video here.
