Hundreds of Cuban citizens are on the streets of their country demanding freedom from that country’s long-standing communist government.
The rallies have been triggered by food and medicine shortages as the island nation continues to deal with the fallout of COVID-19.
“Hundreds of people marched through San Antonio de los Baños, southwest of Havana, with videos streaming live on Facebook for nearly an hour before they suddenly disappeared,” the New York Tims reported.
In one widely circulated video clip, protesters can be seen turning over a police car in the city of Cardenas.
Government-run stores are reportedly being looted by goods by protesters as well.
Cuba has been under the control of the Communist Party since 1959 after Fidel Castro led a revolt against the Batista government.
Cuba has consistently been a major international flashpoint ever since, and was for a long time propped up by the Soviet Union.
Cuba was arguably the biggest threat to the United States when the Russian government positioned nuclear missiles there during the Cuban Missile Crisis.
