Highlighting the mass rally called La Gran Concentración Campesina, the chapter examines the impact of rallies during the first months of the Cuban Revolution. It explores the huge mobilization of cross-class support for Fidel Castro's call for the execution of Fulgencio Batista's war criminals, as well as the Agrarian Reform in 1959 by analyzing the role of the media and the increasing centrality of mass rallies as instruments for asserting national sovereignty.
