The Truth About the Uprising in Cuba
Bloody Cuban “President” Miguel Díaz-Canel ordered the police, Armed Forces, Brigades of Rapid Response, soldiers from the Ministry of the Interior, and the intelligence services to brutally repress the peaceful protesters in over 32 cities in the island. But the battle is not over.
n July 11, 2021, the people of Cuba took to the streets in cities from one end of the island to the other to demand peacefully for the most part an end to the bloody communist regime that has oppressed them for more than 62 years. The protesters marched screaming “Libertad, Libertad” meaning Freedom, Freedom down the streets of more than 32 cities. They also were saying “the people united cannot be defeated,” “down with communism,” “you are killing us with hunger”, and “we are not afraid.”
Thousands of Cuban Americans in the United States in Miami, Tampa, New York City, and other cities took to the streets to support those in Cuba demanding an end to the mass-murdering tyrannical communists dictatorship. In Miami, thousands gathered at Versailles Restaurant and the police was forced to shut down a large portion of SW 8 Street. Cubans in Spain and other nations came out to support those in Cuba denouncing the mass-murdering communist Cuban regime.
I went with my wife Haydee to La Carreta Restaurant on Bird Road (SW 40 Street) and 87 Avenue in Miami to participate in the demonstrations in Miami-Dade County. I spoke using a microphone and sang the Cuban national anthem with about 200 hundred people. We then watched many cars and trucks carrying the flags of Cuba and Trump flags driving along Bird Road. I carried the sign Patria y Vida, which means Fatherland and Life, that is carried by opponents of the bloody communist regime. The communist slogan is Patria o Muerte, which means Fatherland or Death. We kept listening and watching the events in Cuba all day and night.
We saw videos from Cuba of stores being looted as there is no food and medicine in Cuba. Some attacked police cars by flipping them and by throwing stones at them.
The Chinese pandemic is killing many in the island. The hospitals have no water or medicines and there is a lack of electricity that results many blackouts all over Cuba. There is a collapsing infrastructure. Some cities have no water and houses are falling apart due to lack of materials.
The so-called President of Cuba Díaz Canel (elected by no one) gave a speech asking all the communists, police, Armed Forces, elite army units of the Brigade of Rapid Response, soldiers from the Ministry of the Interior, and intelligence service officers to shoot, beat up, and arrest those brave Cubans demanding an end to the communist regime. He ordered these communist thugs to take back the streets in the many cities in the island to stop the rebellion. On July 11, 2021, the criminal Miguel Díaz-Canel accused the United Sates of provoking a social explosion in the island, after tens of thousands of Cubans took to the streets in cities all over the island.
During a live television broadcast, the brutal Díaz-Canel stated the United States has implemented a “policy of economic suffocation to provoke social unrest in the country.” He said that the United States is responsible for inflicting economic misery in Cuba by imposing a commercial embargo. This is, of course, a great lie. The United States sells medicines and food to Cuba but wants to get paid since Cuba buys from other nations on credit and never pays them back.
The bloody Cuban president also stated that mercenaries hired by the America intentionally manufactured the anti-government protests to destabilize Cuba. This was another lie. Díaz-Canel called for violence and severe repression against the people of Cuba who in great desperation took to the streets. He stated: “We call on all the revolutionaries of the country, all the communists, to go out in the streets where these provocations will occur, from now on and in the next few days. And to face them in a decisive, firm, and courageous way.”
Cuban opponents of the bloody communist regime marched carrying a large sign saying “Abajo la Dictadura Patria y Vida” meaning Down with the Dictatorship and Fatherland and Life.
The Miami Herald reported the following: “From the Malecón, Havana’s famous seawall near the old city, to small towns in Artemisa province and Palma Soriano, the second-largest city in Santiago de Cuba province, videos live-streamed on Facebook showed thousands of people walking and riding bikes and motorcycles along streets while chanting “Freedom!” “Down with Communism!” and “Patria y Vida” — Homeland and Life — which has become a battle cry among activists after a viral music video turned the revolutionary slogan “Homeland or Death” on its head. During the day, protests erupted in several cities, including the island’s biggest — Havana, Santiago, Santa Clara, Matanzas, Cienfuegos, and Holguín — but also in smaller towns like Palma Soriano, Cárdenas, Colón, Guira de Melena, Artemisa and others.”
Cuban Archive website reported the following: “Cities and towns are militarized and hundreds of elite troops as well as state agents in civilian clothing armed with clubs and bats patrol the streets and occupy parks and public areas. Pockets of demonstrators are tear gassed and many are attacked and/or taken into custody. This wave of terror coincides with the anniversary of the massacre by the Cuban regime of 37 unarmed civilians, including 10 children, for attempting to escape Cuba in the tugboat 13 de Marzo on July 13, 1994. It is high time for governments, international organizations, and all individuals of goodwill to demand respect for all fundamental rights of the Cuban people and to hold the Cuban Communist dictatorship responsible for its long history of human rights’ abuses and crimes against humanity.”
Republicans in the House and the Senate, including Senator Marco Rubio, expressed their support for the Cuban people and requested the Cuban regime not to repress the protesters. President Joe Biden expressed support for the demonstrators in their fight against a corrupt authoritarian regime.
Biden stated the following: “We stand with the Cuban people and their clarion call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering to which they have been subjected by Cuba’s authoritarian regime. The Cuban people are bravely asserting fundamental and universal rights. Those rights, including the right of peaceful protest and the right to freely determine their own future, must be respected. The United States calls on the Cuban regime to hear their people and serve their needs at this vital moment rather than enriching themselves.”
Former President Donald J. Trump’s statement regarding Cuba was completely different from Biden. Trump explained how the Cuban regime has oppressed the people in the past and is currently doing it. He said that Biden must stand up to the Communist regime. Trump explained how when Barack Obama visited Cuba, he went to a baseball game with bloody dictator Raúl Castro while opponents were being beaten and arrested. Barack and Michelle Obama and their two daughters shamefully did the wave with the mass-murderer Raúl Castro at a baseball game.
It is interesting that Biden did not mention that Cuba is a bloody communist regime, not wanting to offend the many communists in the Democratic Party, including among others Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, AOL and the Squad, and his Vice President Kamela Harris. Worse, the Biden administration ended some of the economic sanctions done by Trump against the communists in Venezuela.
Cubans in the island shared many videos on July 11, 2021, showing demonstrators marching on foot, riding bikes, and motorcycles, shouting “Freedom!” “Down with Communism!” “We are not afraid!” A people united cannot be defeated!” The brave Cubans also shouted, “Patria y Vida,” translating to “Homeland and Life.” The slogan comes from a song by a group of Cuban musicians abroad in 2021 that has been used as message of rebellion by opponents. Like in Hong Kong in another tweet, Cuban dissidents are seen flying an American flag. It interesting to note how the American flag is seen as a symbol of freedom.
On July 13, 2021, an editorial in the Wall Street Journal recommended the following: “Step one is not to return to the failed appeasement policy of Barack Obama that expanded U.S. travel and commerce with the island but achieved nothing in political or economic reform…The U.S. can tighten the financial squeeze and impose Magnitsky sanctions on Cuba’s human-rights violators. Helping protesters foil Cuba’s internet shutdown would be invaluable and a warning to Russia and China not to meddle by propping up the regime is warranted.
The resignation of Cuba’s Deputy Minister of the Interior, Brigadier General Jesús Manuel Burón Tabit
On July 14, 2021, Carlos Eire, writing in the Babalu blog explained that the newspaper ABC from Spain reported that “Cuba’s Deputy Minister of the Interior, Brigadier General Jesús Manuel Burón Tabit, has resigned after questioning decision-making within the ministry and the Security Council, as well as the excessive use of police force to repress the demonstrations of 11 July, the day that began the wave of protests that spread throughout the island, as ABC has learned from sources close to the regime.”
Eire also reported that this information was confirmed by the analyst and writer Juan Juan Almeida in his program Juan Juan Al medio. Almeida said that the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Cuba, requested his resignation in the lobby of building A of the Ministry of the Interior. Brigade General Burón Tabit stated upon leaving office were: “Applying the law with strict adherence to it does not mean murder.”
Senator Marco Rubio, Republican from Florida, expressed hope that some within the regime do not favor harsh repression of civil liberties. However, the Cuban regime denied the report. Alberto Gonzalez Casals, director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ International Press Center, said the ABC report was false. Maybe it is true or not. Maybe the regime forced him to come back.
On July 15, 2021, Monica Showalter wrote an article titled “Rats fleeing Cuba’s sinking ship? Resignations and calls ending communist dictatorship are coming fast” that was published in the American Thinker blog. Showalter explained that Carlos Eire wrote an article on the Babalu blog and reported the following:
“The nephew of General Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Callejas who is Raúl Castro’s son-in-law and the man who actually runs Cuba behind the scenes, has left the island is calling for drastic change in Cuba. Carlos Alejandro Rodríguez Halley released a video on July 14 where he calls on his family and others in power drop their weapons and stop the repression and to heed the voices of millions of Cubans and step down from power so a transition to democracy can begin.”
Carlos Alejandro Rodríguez Halley stated in a video that he posted in Facebook the following:
“I make a call for harmony and for the putting down of weapons so a process to start a transition to democracy in Cuba can begin. The people have made clear they no longer want you in power. Listen to the people. Don’t be responsible for the shedding of more blood. Cuba has made it clear on the streets and throughout the entire country that they are not in agreement with your government, that it is a failed government that has led the nation into a health, economic, social, and political crisis. My family is part of the families that are in power in Cuba. My uncle is Division General Luis Alberto Rodríguez López-Calleja. My cousin is Raúl Guillermo Rodríguez Castro, Raúl Castro Ruz’s grandson. And it is to them that I say these words and to the rest of my family and all the military in Cuba.”
Monica Showalter ended her article by concluding the following: “The young scion of the elites is not in Cuba as he says this but that is a helluva embarrassment for the ruling thug whose nephew that is. That’s bound to lead to further defections and comings out, as younger kids aligned with the Jurassic dictatorship seek to separate themselves from the jurassics and join the normal Cubans marching in the streets.”
The strange death of Division General Agustín Peña
It was reported that General Peña had met with the criminal Ramiro Valdés and with the criminal President of Cuba (elected by no one) Miguel Díaz Canel and strangely soon after those meetings he died. At first the bloody regime did not explain the reasons for his death for a few days and his body was quickly cremated and his ashes placed in the Pantheon of the Fallen for the Defense of Holguín.
This led to many observers to think that he was murdered for opposing the genocide going on in Cuba. Later the regime said he died of Covid-19. This is also strange because he was young, and the best medicines are reserved for the high-ranking in the military. When General Peña died the brave unarmed people of Cuba were increasing protests in almost all the country’s provinces, especially areas of the country in eastern Cuba such as the city of Santiago de Cuba, Palma Soriano, and Holguín.
General Peña had the direct command of all the military of the provinces of Granma, Holguín and Ciego de Ávila and was also in charge of the Army logistics department. In 2020, General Peña was promoted to the rank of Division General and participated as a delegate of the eighth Congress of the Communist Party of Cuba, where he was elected a member of the Central Committee.
The assassin and butcher Miguel Díaz-Canel expressed: “Heartfelt condolences to family members, friends and combatants of our #Eastern Army, whose Chief, Division General Agustín Peña, has just passed away. The news is very painful and sad.”
The mass-murdering Cuban communist regime has shot on the wall generals and other high-ranking Army officers. It probably happened to General Peña. Any high-ranking military in Cuba should never disagree with any top Mafia of the diabolical regime since it is a death sentence. Instead, he should rise in rebellion against the ones who are committing genocide against the brave Cubans demanding a Free Cuba!
It is now clear that the mass-murdering communist Cuban regime has mobilized all its repressive forces to destroy the unprecedented rebellion in Cuba. Unless the OAS, the United Nations, the European Union, NATO, and United States intervene by imposing punishing economic sanctions, declaring an economic embargo against Cuba, and breaking diplomatic relations with Cuba, we are going to witness a massacre like in Hungary in 1956 and Tiananmen Square in 1989. Sadly, there is little hope that that will happen as most of these organizations are controlled by globalists of the New World Order.
Making statements that Cuba should stop committing genocide against the Cuban people without punishing sanctions or other strong measures, will not stop the bloody regime in killing, injuring, and arresting as many brave Cubans as it wants.
