Hopes Of Freedom For Cuba: Mass Protests Against Communist Dictatorship Shake The Country

Thousands of suffering citizens took to the streets to demand an end to the communist dictatorship in Cuba.

Both republicans and democrats expressed their support for the people of Cuba on social media. Video materials of the protests were also shared, and there, the nation can be heard chanting “We are not afraid!”

Florida Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar said that the country’s communist regime is cutting off access to the internet.

“The Castro dictatorship doesn’t want the world to see what’s happening,” she wrote. “Please SHARE & stand with these freedom fighters!”

Republican Senator Marco Rubio criticized the mainstream media for avoiding to cover the issue extensively.

“Attention US media … in #Cuba they are rising up because socialism is (always a) disaster,” he tweeted. “Are you going to report on this so the world can hear their voices?”

The Senator also called on President Joe Biden and Secretary Anthony Blinken to urge the Cuban military to not open fire on their citizens.

“The incompetent communist party of #Cuba cannot feed or protest the people from the virus,” Rubio wrote. “Now those in the military must defend the people not the communist party.”

He also went on the attack against Twitter for suggesting that the protests in Cuba were about raising awareness for the Coronavirus.

“(Twitter) Ignores (that) this is really about how socialism is a disaster & always leads to tyranny, despair & suffering,” Rubio wrote, along with a screenshot of “#SOSCuba” trending on social media.

Texas Senator Ted Cruz also gave his two cents on the matter, Tweeting:

“Communist Cuban regime will be consigned to the dustbin of history. It has brutalized & denied freedom to generations of Cubans, and forced my family & so many others to flee. The American people stand squarely with the men & women of Cuba and their noble fight for liberty.”

Florida Representatives Carlos A. Gimenez, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Maria Elvira Salazar crafted a shared statement in support of the Cuban people.

“Now more than ever, the United States and the international community must support the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom. The humanitarian crisis Cuba faces right now is yet another symptom of the incompetence and absolute cruelty of the Cuban tyranny,” the statement read. “We know what freedom means for the Cuban people, and now, while the regime uses savage violence against the people peacefully demonstrating in the streets, the world has the obligation to stand with the brave Cuban people.”

Gelet Fragela of Miami’s Cuban media outlet ADN Cuba, told Fox News that the government has been suppressing its own media – including ADN – for months leading up to the unrest.

“Cuba, just like the Soviet Union, is an organized totalitarian regime that creates a false reality and sends that to the world,” Fragela said.

She also stressed that the country has around 30,000 of its medical experts around the globe while disregarding the health of its own people at home.

“I wouldn’t say this is a protest because of the lack of COVID vaccines, I think this is a protest for the people of Cuba asking for the regime to end once and for all after more than 60 years of repression,” she said.
