Protests continue in Havana: they close traffic in the La Hata neighborhood

MIAMI, United States.- The protests continue in Havana, this was confirmed this Saturday in a thread published on Twitter by the Inventario platform, along with several videos.

“Today, October 1, residents of the La Hata neighborhood closed traffic at the intersection of Calle 20 and Máximo Gómez,” the post says.


In another later he adds: “Public transport buses that circulate along that road have been prevented from passing. Police are already present at the scene.”

“Right now the neighbors have added another blockade on 20th Street, but closer to Concha Street, to prevent vehicles from going down towards El Roble,” said Inventario, which also published a interactive map with updated information about the protests that have occurred in Cuba in recent days.

This Friday night, Havana experienced moments of tension after Cubans took to the streets in various parts of the capital to demand the restoration of electricity.

Since last Monday, September 26, when Hurricane Ian, category 3, crossed the province of Pinar del Río, there has been a national blackout that has not left Cubans indifferent. The meteorological situation was linked, the regime said, to a “malfunction in the national electrical system.”

Blocked streets, barricades and repressive agents throughout the city, this is what happened on Friday, which culminated in a full internet lockdown. Shortly after the service was restored little by little, videos of the chaos in the Havana capital have been made public.

Another protest in Calzada del Cerro and Márquez, in Havana, took place this Saturday morning when dozens of women with pots in hand came out to demand that the country’s authorities restore electricity service. According to the CubaNet correspondent, there is already a police presence in the place to try to dispel the situation.

According to our journalist Camila Acosta, sources in Luyanó assure that dozens of Cubans have also taken to the streets today, Saturday, October 1st.
