On Tuesday, hundreds of Cuban-American protestors shut down a key highway in Miami, asking that President Biden do more to assist the Cuban people in their struggles.
‘We need Biden’s backing,’ said one guy, who was wearing a Cuban flag on his back, according to Fox News. “We haven’t received any assistance from President Obama. As a result, we are attempting to defeat communism and bring it to an end.”
Heavy rains did not deter many of them who were turned away by police as they approached the roadway. The mob shouted “SOS Cuba” while a line of vehicles brought to a halt honked their horns in response to the slogan.
Protests against the Cuban government erupted on Sunday, as the communist island country grappled with a severe economic crisis at the time. According to Reuters, at least 100 protesters, including activists and journalists, have been arrested so far this week.
BEFORE THE CUBAN PRESIDENT ACCUSES THE US OF FUNDING DEMONSTRATORS, BIDEN COMMENDED THE CUBAN PROTESTERS.
“Biden, you should listen to the people here, the elected officials who are Cubans and know what is best for the people of Cuba,” a woman wearing a sweatshirt to protect her head from the rain told Fox News in Miami. “Biden, you should listen to the people here, the elected officials who are Cubans, and know what is best for the people of Cuba.” “So just listen to what we have to say and attempt to work together to see what we can come up with.”
Biden paid tribute to Cuban demonstrators on Monday.
Deputy Vice President Joe Biden said that the United States stands with the Cuban people and their cry for freedom and relief from the pandemic’s tragic grip, as well as from the decades of repression and economic suffering that they have endured under Cuba’s authoritarian regime, according to a statement.
Biden’s comments came in response to accusations made by Cuban President Miguel Daz-Canel that the United States is financing the protesters.
We are seeing a great genocide in Cuba, according to a guy who was carrying an umbrella and wearing a beaded necklace with the Cuban flag, who spoke to News. “Joe Biden should be able to assist us. That is exactly what we are here for: to petition the White House to provide a favorable ruling in favor of the Cuban people.”
According to the guy, the Biden administration must do more than just express sympathy for the protesters.
