Many Americans, including U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Kevin Hern, R-Okla., have united in prayer effort for the people of Cuba. The courageous Cubans are protesting their communist government’s human rights abuses, their lack of individual freedoms and the tragic financial situation on the island nation 90 miles off the coast of the United States.

Through social media, images and videos have emerged showing Cubans rising up against the communist government shouting, “No tenemos miedo,” or in English, “We are Not Afraid.”

These nationwide protests have been the largest since 1994.

Cuban American Rubio tweeted about the protests and included videos, He commented that the protests stem from “frustration with the dictatorship’s incompetence, greed and repression, and it is mounting rapidly.”

Rubio scolded the U.S. national media outlets for their lack of coverage of the Cuban people’s plight.

“Surreal but not surprising,” Rubio says. “Twitter says all this about COVID ‘awareness’ in #Cuba and ignores this. This is really about how socialism is a disaster and always leads to tyranny, despair and suffering.”
