Exiles march in solidarity in Miami as crackdown intensifies ahead of Monday protest in Cuba

The Miami Herald
Cuban exiles gathered at the Museum Park after a car caravan organized by the Assembly of the Cuban Resistance through the streets of Miami from the Cuban Memorial in Tamiami Park to the Freedom Tower in Downtown Miami, to show support of the upcoming demonstrations that will take place throughout Cuba including the 15N pacific march called by the Archipelago group, on Sunday November14 2021.

The Cuban government and the opposition are on a clashing path this weekend.

Authorities are conducting widespread police interrogations, detentions and so called acts of repudiation in anticipation of an opposition march planned for Monday that the government has said it will not allow because it claims it is part of a U.S. interventionist plan.

Cubans in several cities worldwide have organized demonstrations in solidarity with the Cuban people and the young artists and activists of Archiepiélago, the group that called the march. The authorities have already threatened to imprison Yunior García Aguilera, one of the Archipiélago leaders, who announced his intentions to walk alone Sunday.
