Cuba will never be the same again, says Catholic media specialist – UCA News

Cubans born in the past two decades are seeing first hand state repression and violence not witnessed in their lifetimes as economic woes and a coronavirus pandemic widen in their country, according to a Catholic communications specialist in Cuba. Thousands of Cubans in Havana and elsewhere took to the streets July 11 to protest economic hardships, lack of basic freedoms and the Cuban government’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, making for what some have described as the most significant unrest in decades. The government reportedly has responded in the days since the protests with a raft of arrests as protesters, including some clergy, have been dragged away from the streets and at their homes — and including a fatal police shooting of a man taking part in an anti-government protest.
