Cuba experienced the largest anti-government protests in decades this Sunday.

For the first time in more than 60 years, thousands of people took to the streets in some twenty towns and cities across the island shouting “freedom” and “down with the dictatorship.”

Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel said in a televised message on Monday that the protests were a provocation by the United States to destabilize the country.

Díaz-Canel assured that the US has carried out “a policy of economic suffocation” in order to “provoke social outbreaks, misunderstandings and dissatisfaction” on the island.
