Thousands Of Cubans Protest Against The Communist Regime

Published

Thousands of Cubans have recently decided to go out on the streets to air their grievances towards the communist regime over the country’s aggravating economy, regular power outages and the lack of food and medicine. 

The COVID-19 virus burdened an already struggling island nation that has suffered under an incompetent Miguel Díaz-Canel dictatorship. On Monday, Díaz-Canel addressed the citizens of Cuba and he has put the blame on America for his nation’s economic woes. 

Meanwhile in America, Democratic Socialists like Bernie Sanders, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other communist-supporting liberals have remained silent on the issue. Former president Donald Trump, on the other hand, has expressed his support for the Cuban people, through his personal blog.

“Big demonstrations are breaking out in Cuba and Miami in protest of the Communist Cuban Government (although, today there are zero protesters in Cuba — you know what that means!)” Trump said

“Don’t forget that Biden and the Democrats campaigned on reversing my very tough stance on Cuba. Remember when Obama attended baseball games with Castros while they imprisoned, beat, and killed the Cuban people. I stand with the Cuban people 100% in their fight for freedom,” Trump continued.

The Government must let them speak and be free! Joe Biden MUST stand up to the Communist regime or — history will remember. The Cuban people deserve freedom and human rights! THEY ARE NOT AFRAID!” Trump added.

Anti-government protests are not common in an authoritarian communist state like Cuba. This is why this demonstration is an unprecedented one that has authorities scrambling to arrest as many rallyists as they can. Since the internet in Cuba is state-controlled, footage and pictures of the demonstration have been censored to cover-up the government’s shortcomings.

Around 5,000 Cuban Americans also gathered outside the Versailles Restaurant at Little Havana in Miami, Florida to convey solidarity with their countrymen. They flew some Cuban and U.S. flags while shouting “Down with communism!” and “Viva Cuba Libre.”

“The United States and the international community must do something now. The people of Cuba need medicine. They are starving. They are in need of international help. Unless the Cuban military turns on the government, the people of Cuba will continue to be oppressed without any hope of freedom in the future,” Miami Mayor Francis Suarez stated in an interview with local media.

In an official statement, president Biden shared his sentiments for the Cuban people, although his reversal of Trump’s policies towards the tyrannical regime in Havana is still being questioned by Republicans.

“We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime,” Biden said.
