COVID mismanagement sparks Cuban Embassy street protests

COVID Mismanagement- Cuban Embassy Protest

Mainstreeter Staff

The Cuban Embassy compound on Main Street was both the backdrop and the focal point for several days of noisy, angry demonstrations in late July by Ottawa’s Cuban-Canadian community against the Cuban government’s alleged bungling of the COVID situation in their homeland and the escalating economic woes in the country. According to demonstrators who spoke to The Mainstreeter, recent outbreaks of the Delta variant in the country’s top tourism regions could have been prevented had the authorities clamped down on non-essential tourists and workers from COVID hotspots Russia and India. The Havana government recently acknowledged some blame for the economic crisis in Cuba which has led to food shortages and violent street protests seldom not seen in the country in decades.
