Cuban take to the streets and join the protests over the blackouts

This Friday night, dozens of residents of the municipality of Campechuela, province of Granma, took to the streets to protest against the long power cuts suffered by the population on the island.

In several videos broadcast on social networks, protesters are heard crying out: “Turn on the power, p…”.

Specifically, the protest took place in the La Marina neighborhood, in the Campechuela 2 People’s Council. The protesters took advantage of the darkness to go out into the streets, bang their pots and shout loudly phrases against the island’s rulers.

Just this Friday, Miguel Díaz-Canel referred to the panorama of blackouts that the Cuban population seems to see and said that demonstrations of discontent or protest were not going to solve the problem.

According to Cubadebate, Díaz-Canel “called for solidarity and to avoid actions of nonconformity, some that generate violence and acts of vandalism, which respond – he said – to those who block us and prevent us from acquiring the means to get out of this situation.”

In addition, he added that “with that [protests] the situation we have is not resolved. The situation is going to be resolved by complying with the strategy in which we are committed”.

In the last week, several demonstrations were reported on the Island due to the continuous power outages.

Just at dawn this Friday, hundreds of Cubans in Matanzas and Villa Clara took to the streets to protest the continuous blackouts that have kept the country in suspense for several months.

According to reports on social networks, the demonstrations took place around dawn in the towns of Jagüey Grande, in the province of Matanzas, and in Sagua la Grande and Caibarién, province of Villa Clara.

In the popular council of Australia and in the city of Jagüey Grande, in the municipality of the same name, dozens of people took to the streets demanding “freedom” and shouting “turn on the power”.

In Villa Clara, on the other hand, popular protests were also registered at night from Thursday to Friday. Residents of the cities of Sagua la Grande and Caibarién took to the streets to protest the blackouts.

“If the government doesn’t let the people sleep, they shouldn’t sleep either!”, is heard in one of the videos of the protest in Caibarién, published by the user Vilma Albuerne Noa.

The dissatisfaction of Cubans with the blackouts is growing in the midst of a serious economic crisis in the country, the summer heat and a recent health alert, also due to dengue.

Already on July 14, hundreds of Cubans in Los Palacios, Pinar del Río, took to the streets to protest the blackouts.

Varios videos transmitidos en vivo en redes sociales mostraban a una multitud atravesando las calles de la localidad en dirección a la sede municipal del Partido Comunista de Cuba (PCC) mientras hacían sonar cazuelas y coreaban consignas contestatarias.

En las grabaciones se escuchaba a los manifestantes gritar a viva voz “¡Tenemos hambre!”, “¡Pongan la corriente!”, “¡Díaz-Canel singao!” e incluso “¡Abajo la dictadura!”.
