Cuban Authorities Cut Off Internet Sites and Social Media Following Mass Protests — Like Tech Giants do to Trump and Conservatives here in US

 

Cuban authorities shut down access to internet websites and social media following mass people protests over the weekend.

This is reminiscent of how the far left tech giants treat conservatives and President Trump here at home.

It’s what tyrants do.

The AP reported:

Cubans facing the country’s worst economic crisis in decades took to the streets over the weekend. In turn, authorities blocked social media sites in an apparent effort to stop the flow of information into, out of and within the beleaguered nation.

Restricting internet access has become a tried-and-true method of stifling dissent by authoritarian regimes around the world, alongside government-supported disinformation campaigns and propaganda. On the extreme side, regimes like China and North Korea exert tight control over what regular citizens can access online. Elsewhere, service blockages are more limited, often cutting off common social platforms around elections and times of mass protests.

There was no formal organizer of Sunday’s protests; people found out about the rallying points over social media, mostly on Twitter and Facebook, the platforms most used by Cubans. The thousands of Cubans who took to the streets — protesters and pro-government activists alike — wielded smartphones to capture images and send them to relatives and friends or post them online.
