A man died in a demonstration on Monday in the Güinera neighborhood, on the outskirts of Havana, Cuba, after protests broke out in some 40 Cuban cities.
“The Ministry regrets the death of this person,” according to a note published by the official Cuban news agency, Agencia Cubana de Noticias (ACN), which specified that the death occurred when Diubis Tejeda, 36, was participating in the clashes.
“Several citizens were arrested, and others were injured, including law enforcement officials. Among the participants in the riots, 36-year-old citizen Diubis Laurencio Tejeda, resident in the municipality itself, died (…) The rest of the injured were transferred to hospitals for care. The circumstances of this event are being investigated,” reads the ACN report.
Monday’s protest in that neighborhood, one of the most depressed areas of Havana, was broadcast in several videos through social networks, despite the fact that the Government has kept the internet connection cut off since Sunday.
In the images, only dozens of people are seen advancing through the streets shouting slogans such as “freedom” or “a united people will never be defeated.”
