Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Colonel has condemned the spread of lies about what is happening in the country this Saturday.
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Colonel has condemned the spread of false information about the riots on the island this Saturday (07.17.2021), in front of Raul Castro’s organization and thousands of supporters.
Six days after the historic protests against the communist government, he said it was “a lie for the world to see from Cuba” about the spread of “false images” on social networks that “provoke and glorify the destruction and destruction of real estate.”
“There is more of a hatred on social networks,” he stressed. However, the government cut off mobile internet access on the island until Wednesday, before it was re-established but was unstable.
The Havana regime is “not a government that oppresses its people,” said Theos-Colonel. One person was killed in the clashes, dozens were injured and more than 100 were arrested.
Along with Diaz-Colonel, former President Raul Castro, 90, was forced to retire temporarily due to the severity of the situation.
Before the event began, a man was arrested on the Esplanade in Prague, near the U.S. embassy, after shouting “homeland and life,” the title of a provocative rap song that became the anthem of the protests, AFP news agency reported.
According to the official Granma newspaper, events such as Santiago de Cuba, Biamo, Camage and Santa Clara are planned for other cities in the country this Saturday.
