We think that by analyzing what they are going to do”, a local source explained to CubaNet.
The trigger for the protest, he indicated, is the lack of food and the precarious conditions of the health system.
“After the five pounds of rice for the month are gone, we are eating bread with sugar. They are starving us while they live well. We go to the hospitals and they treat us with holy cane because there are no medicines either,” said the Cuban.
in one of The videos that have come out of the demonstration, the people are heard shouting that they are hungry and that they do not believe in the excuse of the blockade.
