Cuban-Americans in NJ rally in support of protestors in Cuba

The island continues to deal with economic hardship that has worsened during the pandemic

Calls for liberation filled the air in North Bergen on Tuesday as hundreds of Cuban-Americans rallied to show their support for the thousands of Cubans currently protesting communist leadership on the island.

The show of support comes as the island continues to deal with economic hardship that has worsened during the pandemic. New Jerseyans with family ties to Cuba say they’re heartbroken and just want to see their home country free.
