Thousands of people took to the streets in Cuba on July 11 to protest the lack of basic necessities, the restriction of fundamental rights and freedoms, and the government’s unsuccessful fight against the Kovid-19 epidemic.
The Cuban government, on the other hand, claimed that the protests were organized by US-funded mercenaries and that these people supported the economic embargo.
According to the news of İHA; ABD State Department Spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement that President Joe Biden’s administration is considering the sanctions due to the pressure applied to the demonstrators participating in the peaceful protests in Cuba. Price announced that the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control is investigating ways to hold Cuban officials accountable for violence, repression and human rights abuses against demonstrators participating in peaceful protests.
THE PROTESTS HAVE RESULTS
After the protests, the Cuban government announced that the restrictions on the amount of food and medicine that passengers from different countries could bring to the country were temporarily lifted, and declared that with the decision taken, taxes would not be charged on those products brought to the country.
