“Jeff Bezos is Cuban-American.” This is what singer Pitbull said to ask big businessmen to support the protests that Cubans have been carrying out since Sunday.
The singer explained that, in his opinion, all those who have Latin roots should support the cry for freedom that is taking place on the island. Likewise, he said that it is time to support demosntrators and for them to keep their spirits up.
Pitbull’s statements were published in a video shared on his social networks. In the video he said that the protests are for freedom and respect for the human rights of all Cubans.
Pitbull is not the only one
But the Cuban singer is not the only one who has asked public figures to be more forceful in their support for Cubans. Republican Senator Marco Rubio said on Wednesday that the government of Joe Biden “has been too weak” in making decisions regarding the events in Cuba.
In this regard, Rubio urged the president to call on the United Nations (UN), the Organization of American States (OAS) and the international community to condemn what the Cuban regime is doing to its citizens after three days since Cubans rose up against the dictatorship of Miguel Díaz-Canel.
Since Sunday, protests have been registered in Cuba demanding freedom. Several users on social networks reported yesterday massive demonstrations. These have been supported by members of the Republican Party.
In that sense, Congresswoman María Elvira Salazar described the demonstrations as something never seen before. “The people of #Cubahttps://twitter.com/hashtag/Cuba?src=hashtag_click have taken to the streets. Tens of thousands are protesting throughout the island. We have never seen anything like this before. The Cuban people are determined to be free. #SOShttps://twitter.com/hashtag/SOSCuba?src=hashtag_clickCuba,” Salazar said.
