The musician Ivan Leiva confronted the Cuban regime on social networks with demands to protect the population from the increase in abuse and violence in Havana and the rest of the country.
“There will be Go out to chase the robbers and treat them the same way they treated their victims? Will people have to? Take justice into your hands so that those responsible for the security of the citizens do their job?” asked the artist in a post on his social networks.
According to Leyva, it is time for the government of Miguel Diaz-Canel to focus on solving the upsurge in violence in Cuba and “deal with the attackers and killers in an exemplary manner.”
He clarified that among the Victims of assaults in Havana, there are sympathizers of the communist system and that the regime is abandoning them too.
“It is the disappointed who, despite years of clinging to the notion that the enemy outside is at the root of our problems, today speak out with anger and indignation at those who turn their backs on them. Remember that I am a mother, and you are a father who is crying because of the pain and anger he feels because his son is the victim of a mugging or murder capable of anything,” he warned.
Leyva believes it is very difficult to trust justice in Cuba but urges the regime to make an effort and protect the people.
“You have all the means to do it, and they know it. It’s not about politics. It’s about doing what they have to do, and for that they get a good salary, higher than that of a doctor working under very unfavorable conditions compared to you,” he said.
In his message, Leyva recalled that the Cuban government has great resources to carry out repressive measures to remain in power but few to protect the population.
“We’re tired of seeing air-conditioned patrols cruising around the city in places where there aren’t any potentially criminal personnel at all. Go into a hospital and look at the conditions medical professionals work in.” do your job. It’s about the safety of the citizens,” he said.
