Cubans in the streets push back the police of the dictatorship

The protests of Cubans inflamed by the blackout that has kept the island in the dark since Wednesday have made the police forces of the dictatorship withdraw. Viralized videos of the demonstrations in Havana record the moment of retreat of officials in the service of the regime in the face of claims that in addition to demanding the restitution of service, they also advocate for freedom on the island.

The images captured on the central 31st Avenue in Vedado confirm the tiredness of Cubans in the face of power cuts and the loss of fear of Miguel Díaz-Canel’s security agents in the municipalities of Arroyo Naranjo, el Cerro and Batabanó, Puentes Grandes, Guanabacoa, the Bejucal road and the Calabazar, Mantilla and La Palma district, where demonstrations have been registered in recent hours.

Without Internet

Given the increase in demonstrations in the streets, Diario de Cuba reveals that the regime suspended internet service to prevent the spread of chaos inside and outside the island; however, the interruption was not entirely successful for the dictatorship, as it even affected state websites.

“The internet blackout on the night of September 30 in #Cuba once again left state websites hosted on national servers inaccessible,” reported the Inventario portal.

The fall affected not only the Cudebate portal but also the website of the Communist Party of Cuba (PCC) and that of the Cuban state virtual encyclopedia EcuRed.

Retaliation against citizens

The day unleashed “the combat order” against the protesters, journalist José Raúl Gallego said on his Twitter account, from which he shared images of military trucks transporting civil servants to repress Cubans who express themselves in streets.

This provision of the Díaz-Canel regime tries to contain the discontent over the cuts when the Electric Union recognizes that the supply currently reaches 10% of the population of the capital, alleging that the damage to the infrastructure of the national energy system – made up of by poles, power lines and transformers – after the passage of Hurricane Ian, it prevents the short-term restoration of the service that was already in clear deterioration.
