Diaz-Canel tries to ‘dance’ the rumba while innocent Cubans are sentenced to prison

The Cuban regime’s president, Miguel Diaz-Canel, attempted to dance the rumba in front of state-run media cameras on Thursday during a visit to the town of Regla in Havana.

Since the popular uprising against the communist government this past July 11 in more than 60 cities across the nation, Diaz-Canel and other leaders are visiting poor neighborhoods and cities to “immerse themselves in the people” and give the impression they have support from the people while at the same time hundreds of people arrested are being put on trial for protesting.

According to state-run television, General Raul Castro’s hand-picked leader “could appreciate the extensive process of rejuvenation in the historic district and other parts of the area” in Regla. The report included statements from some of the locals, the majority of them officials and former officials of the regime.

At the end of the show, Diaz-Canel “arrived at the symbols of this town: the ceiba tree, religion, the sea, and he also danced rumba,” reported Claudia Díaz Pérez for state-run radio station Radio Rebelde.

“We will resist, survive, and emerge victorious said the chorus of Omar and his Rumba Way,” added the state journalist in a post on social media where she shared a video of the leader trying to follow the rhythm although he failed in his attempt to dance the rumba.

While the president was dancing the rumba in Havana, a young woman by the name of Reyna Yacnara Barreto, who was sentenced to 4 years of hard labor for peacefully protesting on July 11, arrived at a prison in Camaguey.

  1. Of course. Because cheap, cheesy and totally unconvincing pandering is what Cuba really needs.

    This guy is so cringeworthy that sometimes I almost feel sorry for him.

    Well, at least he wasn’t wearing the Cuban flag this time.
