The Cubans are Protesting ! by American Elephant

From Townhall:

“Cuba’s communist government is continuing to suppress protesters from sharing real-time updates concerning the authoritarian regime, but bipartisan legislation is enabling activists to access the internet. The Open Technology Fund Authorization Act, championed by Senators Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Bob Menendez (D-NJ), supports tools to circumvent internet censorship, including Psiphon.”

“Socialism and communism leads to pain and suffering, and Cuba is the perfect example,” Blackburn said of the legislation. “The repressive Cuban government is attempting to squash protests by cutting off internet access for Cubans rebelling against communism. Yet, over 146,000 Cubans continue to have daily access to the internet thanks to open-source tools supported by the bipartisan Open Technology Fund my colleagues and I championed. The United States must do everything in its power to support those standing up to authoritarian regimes.”

Over 1.3 million Cuban protesters, who are victims of the communist regime, have been able to access the internet thanks to the service funded by the legislation.

Thanks to the two Senators, the ongoing story from Cuba is not successfully being denied. Cubans in America are protesting at the White House, to let people know what is going on. Fidel Castro’s prison island is becoming free once again. A violent protest could quickly be shut down, but a protest with only the weapons of dissent and a demand for freedom is harder to deal with, and the images of the protest going out to the world is the last thing the government wants to happen.

Meanwhile Biden and Trudeau are doing the opposite, shutting down free-speech in America and Canada!
