The Cuban American diaspora stands in solidarity with the Cuban people as they demand freedom.The Communist government in Cuba has denied the Cuban people basic human rights – including freedom of expression – for 62 years. The government has used repressive policies and brutal tactics to stifle the voice of anyone who dissents.
On July 11th, for the first time since the Revolution, Cubans in fifty different cities across the island peacefully marched to demand change. They called for freedom and relief from decades of suffering, openly holding their government accountable for its failures. The Cuban regime’s response has been violent and brutal, following a well-established playbook of ruthless repression.
As members of the Cuban American diaspora, it is our responsibility to support the Cuban people in their quest of determining the future of their own country. We are taking our lead from the diverse chorus of Cuban people who are lifting their voices in favor of freedom.
We call on President Biden, and other world leaders including the Vatican, to stand with the Cuban people and peacefully intercede in support of their freedom.
To stand in solidarity with the people of Cuba, please help amplify their voices and contribute to humanitarian relief efforts on the island
