The Democratic Socialists of America — of which Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) are members — expressed solidarity with the Cuban people against the American embargo.
“DSA stands with the Cuban people and their Revolution in this moment of unrest,” the organization tweeted. “End the blockade.”
