Thousands of Cubans take to the streets in support of the Cuban president, in the presence of Castro

More than 100,000 people gathered yesterday, in La Biragua, in Havana, to defend the Cuban revolution and socialism, in the presence of former President Raul Castro and Cuban President, Miguel Diaz-Canel, Cuba's Cuba Depati website said.

The website indicated that all hygiene measures were implemented, and the thousands of Havanese who attended demanded the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed by the United States and the cessation of attempts to destabilize Cuba.

Similar meetings were held simultaneously in all provinces of the country, in order to express their support for the President of Cuba, Diaz-Canel, after the protests against him that erupted in the country on 11 July.

The Cuban government attacked social networks, after spreading false news about Cuba and about the anti-government protests that began a week ago, as it confirmed that digital social networks, especially as they bring information from right-wing media, especially those based in Miami and funded by Washington, manipulate events and images, and published a torrent fake news

"Can Twitter explain how its anti-mail systems allowed this propaganda bombing using the hashtag #SOSCuba?" the Cuban website said.

Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel commented, "Cuba is not a land of hate, and it will not be a land of hate." He also denounced the publication by some social media of false images of those protests, according to the Cuban Prensa Latina agency.

Díaz-Canel denounced the media campaign that his country is suffering from, and called for an end to "lies, shame and hate", and said that Cuba belongs to everyone, and to all Cubans who work, wherever they are, to see it progress.

The Cuban president stressed that there are "false images" on social media that "incite hatred and the destruction of buildings", denouncing the alleged spread of lies about the riots on the island, during his speech to the safety of gatherings of thousands of his supporters accompanied by former President Raul Castro.
