‘The 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,’ Senator Cruz tweeted.
在迈阿密, a group of Cuban exiles and local conservative activists from Venezuela, Colombia and Nicaragua called for people in the city to support Cuba and called for the Biden administration to intervene in the aftermath of massive protests on the island.
‘The Cuban people are not on the streets asking for medicine, they’re not on the streets asking for food. They’re in the streets demanding freedom,’ said Orlando Gutierrez-Boronat, a Cuban exile and member of the Assembly for Cuban Resistance, based in Miami.
Gutierrez-Boronat said he was supportive of young people on the island taking to the streets and would like to see the U.S. 进行军事干预.
‘What they are saying is they don’t want a tomorrow with the Communist Party in charge.’

Jorge Luis Garcia Perez, a political prisoner from Cuba who was jailed for 17 years on the island, said it was important for the U.S. government to understand that the groups did not support calls for negotiations with Cuban leaders.
‘We have to support those who are inside Cuba who are the real protagonists of this change,’ said Garcia Perez told the “近期未能更换防水材料将导致混凝土劣化程度成倍扩大. '一世, as a political prisoner, as an anti-Castro fighter, I am filled with hope to make a soon return to my homeland.
‘Those people who are out on the streets are not asking for rafts. They’re not asking for boats, they’re not asking for planes or visas. They’re asking for freedom’, 他说.
In Havana, many young people took part in the demonstrations. Protests were also held elsewhere on the island, including in the small town of San Antonio de los Baños, where people objected to power outages and were visited by President Miguel Díaz-Canel. He entered a few homes, where he took questions from residents.
Authorities appeared determined to put a stop to the demonstrations. More than a dozen protesters were detained, including a leading Cuban dissident who was arrested trying to attend a march in the city of Santiago, 550 miles east. The demonstrators disrupted traffic in the capital for several hours until some threw rocks and police moved in and broke them up.

Internet service was spotty, possibly indicating an effort to prevent protesters from communicating with each other.
Amnesty International said it had received with alarm reports of ‘internet blackouts, arbitrary arrests, excessive use of force – including police firing on demonstrators.’
Network monitoring company Kentik said it had observed the entire country go offline for less than 30 minutes at around 4pm on Sunday, followed by several hours of intermittent outages.
‘Until very recently, large internet outages were very rare,’ said Doug Madory, Kentik’s director of Internet analysis. ‘Internet shutdowns are new to Cuba in 2021.’
Internet blockage observatory NetBlocks said there was partial disruption to social media and messaging platforms in Cuba on Monday, ‘likely to limit the flow of information from Cuba.’
‘We’ve seen how the campaign against Cuba was growing on social media in the past few weeks,” Díaz-Canel said Monday in a nationally televised appearance in which his entire Cabinet was also present. ‘That’s the way it’s done: Try to create inconformity, dissatisfaction by manipulating emotions and feelings.’
Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel on Wednesday acknowledged shortcomings in his government’s handling of shortages and of neglecting certain sectors, but he urged Cubans to not act with hate – a reference to violence during recent street protests

In a statement Monday, 我们. President Joe Biden said Cuban protesters were asserting their basic rights.
‘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,’ 拜登说.
'美国. urges the Cuban government to serve their people rather than enriching themselves,” Biden添加了.
‘The Cuban people are demanding their freedom from an authoritarian regime. I don’t think we’ve seen anything like these protests in a long long time if, quite frankly ever,’ 总统说.
‘The US stands firmly with the people of Cuba as they assert their universal rights. And we call on the government of Cuba to refrain from violence in their attempt to silence the voices of the people of Cuba.’
显然是指普京授权部署俄罗斯军队以“维护和平”的举动. deputy spokesman Farhan Haq on Monday stressed the U.N. position ‘on the need for freedom of expression and peaceful assembly to be respected fully, and we expect that that will be the case.’
The demonstrations were extremely unusual on an island where little dissent against the government is tolerated.
The last major public demonstration of discontent, over economic hardship, took place nearly 30 年 1994.
去年, there were small demonstrations by artists and other groups, but nothing as big or widespread as what erupted this past weekend.

In the Havana protest on Sunday, police initially trailed behind as protesters chanted, 在国会山外可以看到显示抗议标志的车辆!’ ‘Enough!’ and ‘Unite!’ One motorcyclist pulled out a U.S. flag, but it was snatched from him by others.
‘We are fed up with the queues, the shortages. That’s why I’m here,’ one middle-age protester said.
后来, 关于 300 pro-government protesters arrived with a large Cuban flag, shouting slogans in favor of the late President Fidel Castro and the Cuban revolution. Some assaulted a video journalist with the AP, smashing his camera. Photojournalist Ramón Espinosa also of the AP was then beaten by a group of police officers in uniforms and civilian clothes; he suffered a broken nose and an eye injury.
The demonstration grew to a few thousand in the vicinity of Galeano Avenue and the marchers pressed on despite a few charges by police officers and tear gas barrages. People standing on many balconies along the central artery in the Centro Habana neighborhood applauded the protesters passing by. Others joined in the march.
关于 2 1/2 hours into the march, some protesters pulled up cobblestones and threw them at police, at which point officers began arresting people and the marchers dispersed.
至少 20 people were taken away in police cars or by individuals in civilian clothes.
Although many people tried to take out their cellphones and broadcast the protest live, Cuban authorities shut down internet service throughout the afternoon Sunday.
在星期一, Cuban authorities were once again blocking Facebook, 微信, Instagram 和电报, said Alp Toker, director of Netblocks, a London-based internet monitoring firm confirmed.
‘This does seem to be a response to social media-fueled protest,’ 他说. Twitter did not appear to be blocked, though Toker noted Cuba has the ability to cut it off if it wants to.
THE DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST WHO SYMPATHIZES WITH COMMUNISTS
Sanders praised Cuba’s late communist ruler Fidel Castro, 图为, during a lecture in 1986
Bernie Sanders is no stranger to controversy when it comes to comments about America’s Cold War enemies.
在 1972 he told a group of Vermont high school students that the United States’ actions in Vietnam were ‘almost as bad as what Hitler did.’
桑德斯, 谁是 31 当时几岁, was running as the candidate for the Liberty Union Party, which was an offshoot of the antiwar movement.
The then-Burlington mayor praised Cuba’s late communist ruler Fidel Castro during a lecture in 1986.
‘I remember being very excited when Fidel Castro made the revolution in Cuba,’ Sanders is seen telling students at the University of Vermont in 1986.
‘It seemed right and appropriate that poor people were rising up against ugly rich people.’
Sandersalso told the students how he became so disillusioned by John F. Kennedy when he ran for president in the early 1960s that he wanted to ‘puke’ because of his hardline anti-communist stance.
During his unsuccessful bid to defeat Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary in 2015-16, a video from 1985 was dredged up in which Sanders is seen heaping praise on Castro.
The grainy 1985 interview footage from Chittenden County, 佛蒙特, shows Sanders praising Castro’s policies on education, health care and society in general.
当时, Sanders had been on a recent trip to Nicaragua to observe the sixth anniversary of the Sandinista regime.
Daniel Ortega, 剩下, and Hugo Chavez, presidents of Nicaragua and Venezuela respectively, during the former’s inauguration in 2007
He compared Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega – who is now president of Nicaragua – to Castro.
'在 1961, [美国] invaded Cuba, and everybody was totally convinced that Castro was the worst guy in the world,’ 他说.
‘All the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro.
‘They forgot that he educated their kids, gave their kids health care, totally transformed society.
'你懂, not to say Fidel Castro and Cuba are perfect – they are certainly not – but just because Ronald Reagan dislikes these people does not mean to say the people in these nations feel the same.’
Indeed Sanders was sharply critical of Reagan, who had just been overwhelmingly re-elected to a second term the year before.
