Several cafeterias in Santiago de Cuba demolished under government orders

Several photos on social media are showing the demolition of private cafeterias by local government authorities in the town of Contramestre in Santiago de Cuba.

“That shop fed those Cubans who are forced to yell viva Diaz-Canel, so tell me, is that just? Not you guys because you have it all and your families don’t have to suffer shortages, you have no conscience, no feelings. Tell me, what did he do that made you want to take down his shop where every month he paid you his taxes and fed the people you have dying of hunger? The pain I feel is unforgivable, but of course, you don’t feel that pain because it’s not your family. I demand justice,” he said.

Not in the one who’s sick, his mother, his children and family members who up until today were living off that business.
