Residents in Florida are organizing food and supply runs to assist pro-democracy demonstrators in Cuba, using their own boats.
According to a CBS station in Miami, a big party of boats departed for the island on Monday, bringing food, water, and medication.
“We are just bringing supplies. They are trying to create a group to take on water, food, medicine, whatever we can to take a Cuba. We are just waiting for the approval so we can enter and give it to them.,” Dennis Suayero said to the outlet.
Despite the US Coast Guard’s warning not to undertake unauthorized trips to Cuba, boaters are moving forward with their plans.
NBC6 reported earlier today of the the Coast Guard being 7 miles off the Key West watching boaters who will be heading to Cuba.
