Thousands of Cubans are paying their respects to former president Fidel Castro, who died Friday at age 90. But not everyone feels admiration for the country's former leader.

Aurelio, 24, says he would lose his job if he didn’t attend the memorial services for the country's longtime leader. Workers, union leaders and schoolchildren are all taking part in the commemorations.

While Cubans from the older generation may still view the Castros as almost members of the family, young people don’t always share this point of view. And the variety of perspectives on display in Havana's Revolution Square reveal a Cuba on the brink of major change.
