Cubans Stand Up Against Communist Dictatorship, Waving American Flag, Chant ‘Liberty!’ In Massive Protests

Thousands of Cubans flooded the streets on Sunday in what some are calling the country’s biggest public protest in 50 years, protesting the country’s harsh communist government.

Protesters shouted “Liberty!” and “Freedom!” as they marched against the country’s failing communist regime in dozens of places ranging from San Antonio de los Baos to Palma Soriano to Havana, the nation’s capital.

During a protest in Artemisa, one lady reportedly yelled, “The people are dying of hunger!”

“Our children are dying of hunger!” “We are not afraid!” were purportedly shouted by others.

Protesters were also seen holding and waving the American flag while shouting for freedom in at least one widely distributed video on social media.

A Conservative media strategist  Giancarlo Sopo wrote, “This is deeply moving. Watch as Cubans wave the American flag while marching against the island’s 62-year-old communist dictatorship on the streets of Havana.”

“Never forget what America represents to millions across the world,” he said.

Several other social media commenters also mentioned how the Cuban people, who had personal experience with communism’s oppression, nevertheless see the American flag as a sign of hope and freedom.

However, many people in America, particularly in the Democratic Party, have a very different perspective on the flag. Some people see it as a symbol of oppression and white supremacy.

Many people were surprised by the spontaneous mass demonstrations since Cuba’s communist government is notorious for violently suppressing dissent.

However, according to pictures and videos shared on social media, the sheer number of the protesters overpowered authorities in several places. Protesters seemed to have overwhelmed and taken possession of a local communist party headquarters in one location.

In reaction to the freedom demonstrations, Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, the son of Cuban immigrants, warned that the communist government will likely cut down internet and mobile phone access in the nation.

On Twitter, he also asked that President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken instruct Cuban military personnel not to fire on protesters.

Biden reportedly voiced sympathy for the Cuban people in a statement received by the McClatchy news organization.

“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,” stated the president.
