“The truth about Cuba’s abuse of its citizens and why the people are now fighting back” by America Valdez

Cubans holding mass protests was unthinkable in our community until right now. It’s something I was convinced I would not even see in my lifetime. But, citizens have lost their freedom, their loved ones and, now, their fear. All they have left are their lives.

BLM’s Official Statement on Twitter:

BLM shows its true colors in statement praising Cuba

By Eddie Scarry. (New York Post)

Videos posted on social media show Cubans young and old calling for “liberty,” and chanting “Down with the dictatorship” and “Down with communism.” There’s a reason they’re not crying out things more like, “We hate the America” and “U.S. sucks.” You would have to attend a BLM rally for that.


BLM under fire for defending Cuban regime, blaming protests on US

By Lee Brown. (New York Post)

Black Lives Matter has been accused of hypocrisy by ignoring the pleas for help from Cuba’s oppressed citizens — instead blaming the violent protests on US opposition to the Communist “revolution.”


“Cuba has historically demonstrated solidarity with oppressed peoples of African descent,” the group wrote — praising it for “protecting black revolutionaries” like Assata Shakur, the former Black Panther who fled prison in 1979 while serving life for the execution-style murder of a New Jersey state trooper.

In Case You Might be tempted to believe BLM and AOC that the only reason the people are suffering is because of US embargoes, please consider studying the history of the Cuban Revolution. Communist Regimes oppress and kill, and well funded communist regimes will do more of the same.

From “Common Sense with Bari Weiss on Substack, Antonio García Martínez on what people taking to the streets are protesting.

It’s hard to convey to those who live in the free world what life is like under a totalitarian dictatorship. I’d never experienced anything remotely like it before I traveled to Cuba in 2017 to report a story for WIRED magazine, and it was one of the most memorable and unpleasant experiences of my life.
