Is this the end of communist Cuba?

Thousands of Cubans have taken to the streets in Havana and in other cities to demand vaccines and food as the country faces a period of economic crisis brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic. People criticized President Miguel Diaz-Canel, saying “down with the dictatorship”, according to the Miami Herald. In a speech addressing the country, Diaz-Canel blamed the United States for the unrest, according to Reuters.

“Shouting ‘Freedom’ and other anti-government slogans, hundreds of Cubans took to the streets in cities around the country on Sunday to protest food and medicine shortages, in a remarkable eruption of discontent not seen in nearly 30 years.” — The New York Times
