On his Twitter account, the president said that Cuban emigrants in US territory, who this weekend expressed their desire to establish normal relations with the Caribbean nation, had to face manifestations of violence.

‘Cuban emigres who build bridges of love, faced a hateful attack to their caravan in Miami. Is there no freedom of speech for those who demand an end to a genocide? A message tours the world: the blockade must end,’ Diaz-Canel tweeted.

Carlos Lazo, one of the promoters of the Bridges of Love initiative, denounced on Sunday that the activity carried out in that Florida city in rejection of Washington’s siege against Cuba, suffered attacks by fascist and intolerant individuals. On previous occasions, activists have received attacks and threats, but according to Lazo, nothing will silence most of the Cuban-Americans who condemn the sanctions against the Caribbean nation and calls for the end of the blockade.

We have the right to express ourselves and ask for lifting that siege, demand the reopening of the Washington Embassy in Havana, the family reunification program is restored and remittances are sent, the activist said.

More than 15 US cities welcomed this weekend initiatives against the economic blockade against Cuba, almost on the brink of the June 23 vote at the United Nations General Assembly on a draft resolution against that unilateral measure.
