Republicans join “Free Cuba” protesters in front of the US Capitol: “Freedom will prevail”


Republican lawmakers joined protesters outside the United States Capitol on Tuesday to hold a press conference in support of Cuba’s liberation from its communist rule.

Senator Ted Cruz, of R-Texas, told Fox News that the group was there to defend the Cuban people who are protesting against the Cuban government.

“The incredible heroes and patriots who take to the streets, risking their lives to denounce the Communist dictatorship,” he said.

Cuban demonstrators denounce “the oppression, poverty, misery, murder, torture that has been practiced for decades by the tyrannical Cuban government,” said Cruz.

Many protesters at the event said they were there to demand that the Biden administration do more.

A Cuban protester told Fox News that Biden must implement “tough measures, something that shakes the government.”

“He must be strong enough to send a strong message there. The government cannot go and violate the rights of these young people, oppress them,” she added.

“Show some of that empathy patented by Joe Biden for the people of Cuba. They are looking for it, you can give it to them,” another protester told Fox News.

Representative Alex Mooney, RW.Va., said: “Biden has said a few words about supporting the Cuban people and I agree with that, but we need some action.”

“Biden needs to pressure other countries to do what we need to do and boycott the regime. The regime takes business, commerce and money and uses it to oppress the people,” Mooney said.

A group that traveled from Florida said they are asking the administration to help free the people. “No vaccines, sending money, food or anything like that, what we need is freedom,” the group told Fox News.

“People are dying. Mothers are suffering “… We need help,” added one of the group’s demonstrators.

Cruz told Fox News he believes Cuba will see freedom.

“The American people stand alongside the Cuban people. The world hears you. Your voice will prevail. Freedom will prevail. I believe Cuba will be free,” said Cruz.
