US saluted the Cuban people for their “indomitable determination in the face of oppression” one year after the 11J protests

The United States admires “the determination” of the Cuban people “in the face of oppression” and supports “their struggle,” the head of diplomacy Antony Blinken said on Monday, one year after the July 11 anti-government demonstrations in Cuba.

The government of US President Joe Biden praises the “indomitable determination (of the Cuban people) in the face of oppression,” he says in a statement.

“To the Cuban people: Americans watched with admiration on July 11, 2021, as tens of thousands of you took to the streets to raise your voices for human rights, fundamental freedoms, and a better life,” he added.

On Twitter, Blinken said: “The United States stands with the Cuban people, and we urge the Cuban regime to respect their voices.”

The protests of July 11 and 12 to the cry of “Freedom” left one dead, dozens injured and more than 1,300 detained, according to Cubalex, a Miami-based human rights NGO.

“We stand with you as the Cuban regime, instead of welcoming the voices of the people, has sentenced hundreds of protesters to decades in prison,” she said.

According to the Attorney General’s Office of the Cuban Republic, 790 prisoners were prosecuted and 488 received a final sentence, many for the crime of sedition with sentences of up to 25 years in prison.

The United States considers it “unacceptable” that these protesters remain behind bars and affirms that it will continue “supporting the Cuban people (…) in their fight for democracy.”

It is, according to Blinken, to ensure that Cuban officials are held accountable “for human rights abuses,” to condemn “restrictions on fundamental freedoms and labor rights,” to call for the unconditional release of political prisoners and Call your allies to do the same.
