Cubans in Miami protest a year after 11J led by Alexander Otaola

Protesters gathered around a monument to Brigade 2506, which honors a US-led campaign to overthrow Fidel Castro in 1960, to voice their concerns and defend the Caribbean island’s freedom.

On July 11 of last year, Cubans took to the streets of the island demanding an end to the dictatorship as well as social and economic reforms in one of the largest demonstrations since the late Fidel Castro usurped power in 1959.

The protests were repressed with abusive arrests and jail sentences as documented by different human rights groups.

The Cuban dictatorship has sanctioned 381 people, including 16 young people between the ages of 16 and 18, who participated in the protests last summer.

Of the 381 people sanctioned, a total of 297 have been sentenced to between 5 and 25 years in prison for the crimes of sedition, sabotage, robbery with force and public disorder, according to the Attorney General’s Office in a statement released to state media.

On July 9 of this year, the US State Department announced visa restrictions against 28 Cuban officials it said were implicated in the crackdown.

In a statement, the department said the restrictions would apply to high-ranking members of Cuba’s Communist Party and officials working in the country’s state media and communications sectors.

More than 140,000 Cubans, from all walks of life, have left for the United States since October, US government figures show, the largest exodus from Cuba in decades.
