Protesters from across the United States converged in front of the White House on Sunday night in an attempt to get the Biden administration to take a firmer stance in its attempt to support anti-government protesters in Cuba.
The Biden administration has announced its support for the protesters and has also equalized sanctions. Miami Herald reported that even the protesters had different expectations of what the word “more” actually meant. Some went so far as to suggest a military intervention.
“We went into Kuwait, Somalia and did not ask for any permission,” Maria Fundora, the leader of a Texas-based group called Cuba Libre, told the newspaper. “We went in and killed Usama Bin Laden and asked no one. Are you telling me that someone from Cuba needs to do something as horrible as 9/11 to get the United States to do something?”
One of the more realistic options seems to be the ability of the United States to work around Internet outages in the country so that residents can better inform the world about the reality on the island.
