The United States will punish Cuba’s communist regime, for its crackdown against protestors. Washington announced that it would take action against the Cuban government’s leadership, as well as against the Interior Ministry which is leading the protests.
Joe Biden, the US President, stated that “this is only the beginning.” He assured that the US would continue to punish those who oppressed the Cuban people.
Biden “unambiguously condemned mass detentions, mock trials that unjustly led to prison sentences” for those who spoke out. Biden calls it an attempt to intimidate, silence, and silence the Cuban population. He said Cubans have “the same right to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly as all people.” The US stands behind the “brave Cubans who have taken to the streets to resist 62 years of repression under a communist regime,” he added.
These shocking demonstrations, which had not occurred on such a large scale in 25 years, left many dead. Many people voiced dissatisfaction at their living conditions, and with communist rulers.
President Diaz-Canel previously warned his followers against the “provocations of the protesters.” Cuba accuses America of inflaming the protest movement and launching it. The White House refutes this accusation and refers to “spontaneous demonstrations”, motivated by bitterness over the existence of many Cubans.
