Rep. Mark Green (R-TN) slammed the Cuban government during a meeting of the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
The hearing — which included testimony from activist Rosa María Payá, whose father was murdered by the Cuban regime — considered the American response to widespread anti-communism protests in Cuba that began on July 11.
Honored to have Ms. Rosa María Payá, director of @CUBADECIDE as a witness in today’s #WHEM hearing on the historic protests in Cuba. I’m in awe of the courage of the Cuban people as they protest against the brutal Communist dictatorship. pic.twitter.com/qZIYifF9By

During his opening statement, Green noted that many Cubans waved the American flag while “demanding freedom from the communist dictatorship.”
As the freest and most prosperous nation in the world, the United States must unequivocally stand with the Cuban people against the communist regime. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and Cuba has never been closer. @HouseForeignGOP #WHEM
