Next October 29, a demonstration against terrorism and for the independence of Cuba will take place in Miami announced one of its leaders, activist Marcel Valdés, on social networks this Friday.
Valdés told ADN Cuba that the protest is called by Exilio Unidos Ya and that it will leave from 999 Ponce de Leon Boulevard, in Coral Gables, at 9 a.m.
“If we want Cubans to take to the streets to demand freedom, the least we can do is exile. There we give full priority to the freedom of Cuba and the political prisoners,” he said.
According to the activists, this demonstration will also target accomplices of the Cuban dictatorship who live in the United States and have relations with the regime.
Likewise, the participants will reveal the humiliation of the Cuban regime regarding the terrorist attacks carried out by the Hamas group in Israel. “We condemn everything that the Castro dictatorship has done to justify this massacre and the connection that exists with Hamas terrorists,” he added.
The United Exile Now organization holds protests of this kind on the last Sunday of every month in favor of the independence of the island. As part of the historical exile, former political prisoners of several generations, relatives of political prisoners, activists, groups, movements,s, and individual Cubans meet there.
“Venezuelan, Colombian, and Nicaraguan brothers also support us. If you are in Miami, come, if you are not in Miami, support the networks by sharing this publication and everyone who comes out of the demonstration,” concludes Valdés’ Facebook post.
Cuban exile organizations around the world have become more organized in the last two years, especially after the anti-government protests that took place on the island on July 11 and 12, 2021.
As a result of these unprecedented demonstrations, there are more than 1,000 political prisoners on the island.
September closed with 21 new political prisoners in Cuba, according to the latest report from the organization Prisoners Defenders (PD), recently published.
According to the NGO, there are at least 1,052 political prisoners on the island.
