Separate Facebook profiles refer to ‘popular uprisings’ in several parts of the country, which was denied by Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez.

The Cuban foreign minister disclaimed about alleged riots in the country and denounced the connivance of transnational companies and digital platforms at the communication campaign against Cuba, thus violating their own community rules and ‘spreading messages of hatred and lies.’

Regarding announcements from some accounts on social networks, referring to riots in Old Havana and other sites in Havana, journalists from Juventud Rebelde newspaper and other users also recorded on video peace reigning in the streets.

Some complaints of fake news are closely linked to users declaring themselves as residents of Houston, Texas, from where they were reporting some fake incidents in Cuba.

One of these profiles claimed that people from the municipality of Minas, in Camagüey province, and from Old Havana took to the streets.

Meanwhile, another person –also- from the United States claimed there were riots in Cárdenas, Matanzas, but footage related to that incident were not available due to internet service problems.
