Members of the Florida Cuban community are boarding planes and riding buses to rally in DC this Saturday, 5 PM, in front of the White House. Their stated mission is to raise awareness in Washington for the ongoing plight in the island country.
Many started gathering on Friday evening in anticipation of the Saturday rally. “They are not asking for food – that they need it – they are not asking for medicine – that they need it, too – they are not even asking for medical attention, that they need it. They are asking for freedom,” one woman said to Breitbart News.
According to local station WSVN, Marble Server of Miami came to Washington to join protesters. “Help us free Cuba. We’re asking for intervention, humanitarian intervention. Military intervention is what we’re advocating for. People here have one message, and that is to be heard, to be helped, and we need to bring this regime down.”
The demonstrators painted “CUBA LIBRE” in front of DC’s Cuban Embassy overnight.
