Additional protests took place in areas with large Cuban populations including New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, Venezuela and Canada, among others.

Cuban exiles again joined together that same year on May 20th for the Flotilla of Brotherhood, a gathering of boats 20 miles outside Havana Harbor in remembrance of Cubans who drowned seeking their freedom.
