Published 6 hours ago

One man has died in Cuba and more than 140 have been arrested or reported as missing during rare demonstrations against its Communist government.

Diubis Laurencio Tejeda, 36, died in a suburb of Havana on Monday during a clash between protesters and police.

Cuba's interior ministry did not say what the cause of death was but alleged he was part of a group that attacked a government facility.

However, witnesses said security forces had attacked the protesters.

WATCH — Marco Rubio on Cuba: Call It by Its Name, 'Communist,' 'Marxist,' 'Socialist Tyranny'
Robert Kraychik
13 Jul 2021

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) called on Congress on Tuesday to characterize the political nature of totalitarianism in Cuba as "communist," "Marxist," and "socialist."

"We should be clear in our language," Rubio said during a speech on the Senate floor. "We don't just condemn this tyranny. We condemn this communist, this Marxist, this socialist tyranny. Call it for what it is."

Rubio noted the Cuban government's interdiction of goods and services entering the one-party island state while remarking on trade with Cuba. He stated:

    You can open up all you want. We can pass a bill here that says, "Open to Cuba. A hundred percent open." Full free trade, you can do whatever you want. At the end of the day, the Cuban regime will control that opening. It's not just what we want to do, it's what they want to do.

    You want to do tourism? We tried that in 2015 [with] the Obama changes and you know what they did, they said, 'Thank you. We love the fact you're coming here as [tourists]." Guess what? All the tourist sites are owned by a holding company named GAESA controlled by the Cuban military, so everything comes through [their] hands.

    You want to send them food? That's great. Guess who gets it? Acopio, which is a government military-owned agriculture company. You can't sell it to a small grocery store in Cuba, or even a food wholesaler. It goes to the Cuban government.

    You want to send money? They take it. You know why? Because socialism is about control, and all of these things —  tourism, food, money, medicine — it's all about control.

    You want to do humanitarian aid? Let's get Red Cross, any of these vetted NGOs in the world should be allowed going to Cuba. They won't allow it, because it's embarrassing to them. 

Rubio noted that all transfer of products to Cuba must first go through the Cuban regime, which then parasitizes and politically weaponizes distribution of such products among its subjects.

"They will use any opening as a tool — as a weapon — against their people, because that's what socialism does," he held. "That's what these Marxists do in Cuba. They will use anything as a weapon against the people of Cuba."

The Biden administration did not qualify Cuba's government as leftist, opting against such descriptions as "communist," "Marxist," or "socialist."

'Enough': Uprising in Cuba featuring American flags gets silent treatment from U.S. ruling class

By World Tribune on July 12, 2021

Demonstrators hit the streets in all of Cuba's major cities on Sunday to protest the ruling communist dictatorship's six decades of oppression. [/size]

Protesters chanted "freedom," "enough" and "unite," and demanded the dissolution of the communist dictatorship established by Fidel Castro and inherited by current dictator Miguel Diaz-Canel.

Florida Republican Sen. Marco Rubio took the U.S. State Department to task over a tweet that blamed the protests on concerns over Covid-19 and not the worsening economic situation or the fact that protesters chanted, "We Want Liberty."

Diaz-Canel, who heads the Communist Party, has called on the country's revolutionaries to counter the demonstrators. "We are prepared to do anything," he said during a national address. "We will be battling in the streets."

Breitbart's Wendell Husebo reported: "The Times' narrow coverage contradicts videos from throughout the island that show both plain-clothed and uniformed state security officers attacking peaceful protesters. Breitbart News reported bystanders in Havana heard sounds of heavy gunfire and beatings of dissidents, while Díaz-Canel called for street 'combat' against anyone demanding an end to the regime."

"We are fighting for freedom. It is very difficult. American people need to join with the Cuban," said one protester.

Even in traffic, Cuban flags were everywhere, still supporting the movement.
