Cuba’s ‘president’ leads pro-Hamas march in front of U.S. embassy in Havana

The communist Castro dictatorship sent its sock puppet president out on Thursday to show the regime’s solidarity with the Palestinian Hamas terrorist group. Miguel Diaz-Canel led a regime-organized march in front of the U.S. embassy in Havana, followed by thousands of Cubans, who are forced to attend and participate in these government displays.

Thousands of people led by Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel marched along Havana’s iconic boardwalk Thursday in a show of solidarity with the Palestinian people and demanding an end to the war between Israel and Hamas.

Wearing a black-and-white Palestinian keffiyeh scarf, Díaz-Canel was accompanied by Cuba’s main leaders, including Prime Minister Manuel Marrero and Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez.

The marchers walked for 2 kilometers (1.2 miles), passing in front of the U.S. Embassy. Palestinian medical students who were in Cuba as part of a cooperation program joined the rally.

“Today we are supporting the Palestinian people, supporting all those people who feel the pain of having lost a family member, a loved one due to this massacre,” said Yanquiel Cardoso, a physical culture specialist who participated. “We are asking for a ceasefire … and for Palestine to be free.”

Many young people had posters with the phrase “Free Palestine” with crude photographs of children injured by bombs or flags identifying both Cubans and Palestinians.

“This march means a lot to us,” said Sami Sabala, a 26-year-old Palestinian medical student in Havana. “It raises feelings … And it makes people feel that Palestine is not alone.”

While the Cuban dictatorship has made no secret of its hatred of Israel and Jews and its love for Hamas is in line with its decades-long history of supporting terrorism throughout the world, the Cuban people themselves do not share the same sentiment. As is the case with all government-approved marches in Cuba, the Cuban people are forced to attend with threats by State Security if they don’t show up.

The official organizers of the pro-Hamas march was the Communist Youth Union, who over the past few days used threats to gather enough people to participate in the march.

Students and Cuban workers have been threatened in recent days to participate in a pro-Palestine march called by the Communist Youth Union (UJC) for November 23 at 1 p.m. on G Street in Havana.

X user Christian González de la Moneda, known on social media as San Memero, shared several messages on Wednesday that he received from students at the “Enrique José Varona” Pedagogical University, who were coerced to attend the official demonstration.

“Everyone must attend. The students know that this is their grade for the National Security subject, but it’s also part of their comprehensive evaluation. So, I think it couldn’t be clearer,” an unidentified professor said in an audio message.

In a second audio, the teacher added: “This activity is not called by me, so please focus on the task, contextualize. If you have any doubts, look for the resolution, the ABC of the FEU (…) If you disagree, go and say you won’t do it, and then you will face the consequences. This is not a threat.”

González de la Moneda received several reports of this nature, and other comments were also added to his tweet. A social media user and medical student confirmed that “those who don’t attend will have an evaluation.”

Another user on X commented that at the “José Antonio Echeverría” Technological University of Havana (CUJAE), they “said that anyone who didn’t go would receive a disciplinary mark on their record,” and at the University of Havana, attendance would be taken, and it was “mandatory.”

If you still think Cuba should be removed from the U.S. State Sponsors of Terrorism list, you are either blind, dishonest, or you support terrorism.

  1. Ah, the keffiyeh contingent on parade. Well, no one can accuse them of being ambiguous or too “nuanced.”

    But where’s Aleida Guevara? Has she made good on her offer to go to Gaza and kill Jews?

    And where’s Mariela Castro? Yes, she’s already done the keffiyeh thing, but I thought she loved demonstrations. Maybe she didn’t want to share the limelight with an arriviste like Lis Cuesta.

    As for Marrero, he should wear much looser clothing. He looks like he’s ready to deliver. You’d better believe he’s not eating ropa vieja made with shredded banana peels as a substitute for shredded beef.

    Alas, Cuba sinks ever deeper, as if it hadn’t gone low enough already. No hay por donde cogerla.

  2. The “president” looks eminently “presidential,” no? Well, at least he’s not wearing a military costume.

    But don’t even dream this flagrant display will bother the usual foreign suspects. Of course, nothing does.

  3. So, Cuba wallows ever more in dystopian third-world muck. It’s not slumming, of course, since it is surely a third-world shithole, but if it weren’t for the “revolution,” it’d be a Caribbean South Korea. Gracias, Fidel.

    Alas, Fidel had lots of helpers, and not just Russians or other foreign enablers. We ought to be deeply ashamed, even if we personally had nothing to do with it, because we are all disgraced by it.
