Claudia Villalta was in tears: “They are killing our people, this is genocide. I have been in exile in Costa Rica for more than twenty years, but I love and defend my Cuba.

“Cuba can’t take it anymore. The people need food, medicine. We are tired of the dictatorship, it is more than six decades, no longer, it is time for Cuba to know peace and freedom,” she said.

The Cubans in Costa Rica amassed in protest Wednesday morning assured that they will return to the streets in the next few days if the situation on the island continues to be so “complicated”, especially after Sunday, when there were protests against the government in several cities on the island and which were repressed by the police.

The protest also was in front of the United States embassy, in Pavas (San Jose). Courtesy.

It’s been almost five years since the death of Fidel Castro and three months after Raúl Castro retired (April 18, 2021) and handed over power to Miguel Díaz-Canel, who has been president of the island since October 2019, many Cubans are calling for change, something the government does not intend to do.

The situation in Cuba has become more serious for its people due to the lack of tourism caused by the pandemic.
