Photo of the Day: Cuban Americans show support for Hong Kong protestors at Miami Heat game

Via The Miami New Times:

While fans cheered the Miami Heat during yesterday’s home game against the Houston Rockets, a group of demonstrators filled three rows inside the American Airlines Arena in support of Hong Kong protesters and their demands for democracy.

Dozens of members and supporters of the Miami-based Cuban American National Foundation (CANF), a Cuban exile organization, wore bright-yellow shirts reading, “Fight for freedom. Stand with Hong Kong,” and chanted “Let’s go, Heat. Hong Kong free.”

“Hong Kong is fighting against China and the efforts of the Communist Party,” says Omar Lopez, CANF’s director of human rights. “They’re demanding liberty and independence. That’s what we want in Cuba. Our objectives are similar. We wanted to show support.”
