Cuba in the street: What the Castro dictatorship doesn’t want the world to see

The thousands of false promises, together with the slow recovery of the electrical service damaged by Hurricane Ian, maintains this Friday the social outbreak and the people in the streets of Havana, after peaceful nightly protests in various parts of the capital.

People do not want more misery or communism and it is not ruled out that these types of expressions could be repeated for several days, a large part of the population does not have water, electricity or food.

Cubans began to despair due to the prolonged blackouts that endanger the scarce food they store in their freezers and that also prevent the pumping of water from the sources that supply the capital.

The internet service was affected Thursday night for about seven hours, where incidents of repression against peaceful protesters were recorded.

NetBlocks, a London-based site that monitors internet blockades around the world, said late Thursday that “metrics show an almost total collapse of internet traffic from #Cuba,” amid protests.

This early Friday the site indicated that “connectivity is being restored in #Cuba.”

Roque reported that, in different geographical points of the Cuban capital of 2.1 million inhabitants, such as Bacuranao, Cerro, Alamar, Párraga, people took to the streets and in some cases made bonfires in the dark of the night.

Hurricane Ian, which left three dead and extensive damage in the west of the country, caused a collapse in the national electrical system on Tuesday and the island was completely blacked out.

With 11.2 million inhabitants and 15 provinces, Cuba is unified in a single electrical system, to which 8 large thermoelectric plants, generators and, to a lesser extent, solar and wind energy units contribute.

According to the state monopoly Unión Nacional Eléctrica (UNE), it took 48 and a half hours to recover the interconnection of the system throughout the country, but “there is not enough generation capacity to cover demand,” Lázaro Guerra, one of the their managers.

Havana, where the signs of discontent were reported, woke up this Friday with incipient electricity coverage and with the people at this hour in the streets protesting peacefully.
