Allow me to inquire about the following picture on May Day 1961 in Tokyo. I wonder who the man is on the left in the first picture and on the right in the second.
The first one is described by Associated Press as “MAY DAY IN JAPAN. This was one of the many scenes in the Japanese capital of Tokyo during May Day celebration, on May 1, 1961. Demonstrators are shown carrying huge heads depicting slain Congo premier Patrice Lumumba, left, and Cuban premier Fidel Castro, at right. Note the sign reading "Cuba Si, Yankis No." (AP Photo)”
Another source, however, describes a photo of the same heads differently: “1961 Press Photo May day marchers carry paper-mache heads, Tokyo Japan May day marchers in Tokyo carried papier-mache heads of Cuban Premier Castro and Cuban Foreign Minister Raul Roa. Leftists staged one of the biggest May day celebrations in the history of Japan. Photo is dated 05-01-1961.”
Thank you for your help in identifying! Matthias De Groof
