Protestors block Semoran Boulevard to show support for people in Cuba 1

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. –   On Tuesday afternoon, dozens of protestors took to the streets of Orlando, blocking Semoran Boulevard.

Outside Sedano’s on South Semoran Boulevard and Curry Ford Road, protestors carried signs and flags in the middle of the street.

After decades of imprisonment by a communist regime, Cubans are struggling for freedom and demanding their God-given rights.

On Tuesday, hundreds of protestors stopped a key thoroughfare in Orlando to show their solidarity for the Cuban people.

A mob of 500 people gathered outside Sedano’s Supermarket, spilling over into Semoran Boulevard.

Sara Cave stated, “This is history right there, what you’re seeing right here is history.”

Officers from the Orlando Police Department went in after an hour of protesting, making instructions in English and Spanish urging people to clear the road.

One person was arrested after refusing to leave the road, according to police. Unlawful assembly is the charge leveled against this individual.

Later, Police Chief Orlando Rolon was seen in the crowd conversing with protestors.

“The Florida Highway Patrol supports peaceful protests; however, when protestors block limited-access roadways, they are not only breaching the law, but also endangering the general public. Col. Gene Spaulding added, “Please be courteous of our community.”

At a roundtable on Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis stated, “They are resisting communist oppression, that’s what they’re protesting, that’s what they’re rebelling against, and I think it’s a wonderful cause.”

Food, power, happiness, patience, strength and healthcare shortages sparked large protests in Cuba on Sunday.

Protesters in Orlando are demanding that the US send troops to Cuba immediately.

“All we want now is for the military to intervene in Cuba; they are killing women, children, and everyone,” one protestor remarked.

Protesters knock down Roosevelt, Lincoln statues in ‘rage’ toward Columbus Day

Protesters knock down Roosevelt

A group of around 200 people gathered in Portland’s South Park Blocks just before 9 p.m. Sunday and used ropes and a blowtorch to dislodge and topple a statue of President Theodore Roosevelt.

Some minutes after taking down the Roosevelt statue, a group of people toppled a statue of President Abraham Lincoln and spray painted. Protesters spray-painted “Dakota 38” on the base of Lincoln’s statue, referencing the 38 Dakota men Lincoln approved to have hanged after the men were involved in a violent conflict with white settlers in Minnesota.

According to the reports, Portland police declared the gathering a riot and began to disperse protesters around  9:40 p.m. Police said anyone involved in “criminal behavior, including vandalism” was subject to arrest. It’s unclear if any arrests were made.
