The fleet returned to Miami after setting off fireworks near Cuba.


This is one of the events organized by the Cuban exile in South Florida since the demonstrations in Cuba on July 11.

The flotilla of Miami boats supporting the demonstrations in Cuba returned to the United States in the last hours of this Saturday after launching fireworks off the coast of Havana in international waters.

The successful part of Solidarity Day was given to Social by social networks. They showed some photos in which the lights are seen and the police deployment on the Havana boardwalk.

Our greetings to the young people who successfully carried out the flotilla to send a message of solidarity to the people of Cuba," said Ramón Saúl Sánchez, president of the Democracy Movement, on Twitter this Saturday.

The light has been seen from Cuba (...) I really appreciate you guys. Patria Y. Vada! "They include the activist who has performed 27 flotillas to condemn the Castro dictatorship for 23 years."

The flotilla, which consisted of about five ships deported by Cubans in South Florida, is one of many events since the July 11 protests in Cuba, which included demonstrations, people, watchdogs, roadblocks and the White House. Includes travel.

The demonstrations with the flags of the United States and Cuba and the slogans "SOS Cuba" and "Patria y Vida," the song that has become the anthem of the requests for freedom for the island, have not ceased the last two weeks.

The Democratic Movement has outlined six key points that it has asked Biden's government to support the Cuban people.

These begin with "enabling the Internet connection capacity for the people of Cuba to empower the people with the capacity to receive information, send it and communicate with each other." The group stressed that this includes inviting the various embassies to activate the open "Wi-Fi" capability for Cubans to connect.

Strengthen the TV Martí signal and expand the power of Radio Martí, both technically and budgetary, so that it is more effective in receiving and spreading the voices of civil society.

Punish repressors personally and individually under the Global Magnitsky Law on Human Rights Responsibility, aimed at imposing political and economic sanctions against agents involved in severe abuses.

This, "with name and surname," and apply said sanctions when they are exposed to that possibility, including those who visit the United States.

Also, constantly denounce in all international forums the disappearances, arrests, torture, and violations of Cuban citizens fighting inside Cuba and demand that the institutions that monitor these rights require that they enter Cuba.

Call for an international coalition of countries to put pressure on the Cuban dictatorship to stop cruel human rights abuses and respect the right to free speech.

Finally, put into force the Sullivan principles of corporate social responsibility (in the version that would apply to Cuba, the Arcos Principles) for any company that does business with Cuba.

President Biden said this week that "the United States will continue to punish those responsible for the oppression of the Cuban people" and condemned the "massive arrests and false trails that are unjustly condemning to prison" those who dare to speak out.

Among others, the Biden Government announced last Thursday sanctions against the Minister of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR) of Cuba, Álvaro López-Miera, and an elite military unit popularly known as "black wasps" or "black berets.".

He also said that he is working with the private sector to find innovative ways to ensure that Cubans have access to safe and secure Internet access.
