Florida Republicans were among the most vocal proponents of the freedom protests that erupted in Cuba over the weekend.
Citizens of the island nation demanded an end to the communist dictatorship, under which they suffer poverty and a lack of freedom.
Numerous videos that were posted online showing the protests had “suddenly disappeared” as government censors appeared to take action to stop the movement from growing. “The people are dying of hunger!” one woman shouted, “Our children are dying of hunger!” Other chants included “We want freedom” and “We want vaccines.”
“Florida supports the people of Cuba as they take to the streets against the tyrannical regime in Havana,” Florida Republican Governor Ron DeSantis wrote on Twitter. “The Cuban dictatorship has repressed the people of Cuba for decades & is now trying to silence those who have the courage to speak out against its disastrous policies.”
