Protests in Cuba

The protests in Cuba have sparked a debate about the country's situation and the need for political and economic changes. International human rights organizations have denounced the repression and have urged the Cuban government to respect the rights of citizens and allow freedom of expression.

On March 17, 2024, a series of protests took place in several cities across the country: Santiago de Cuba, Bayamo, and Cardenas among others. The reasons were the same as the previous protests in July 2021.

The protests in Cuba in July 2021 were a significant event that drew the world's attention. Cuban citizens took to the streets to express their discontent with the country's economic and political situation, demanding changes and reforms.

The protests, which took place in several cities in Cuba, were fueled by the shortage of food and medicine, the lack of political freedoms, and the increase in COVID-19 cases on the island. The protesters chanted slogans such as "freedom" and "down with the dictatorship".

The Cuban authorities responded with mass arrests and the repression of protests, triggering international condemnation. Additionally, the government shut down access to the internet and social media, making it difficult to spread information about the situation on the island.
