7:02 pm
thrown, police had to retreat. they just simply don't have enough resources to get a handle on what's happening. thousands of lucas were at that particular mall carrying out anything they could possibly we where we've moved to just down the street is another more where there is somebody looting taking place. we've had police the fire rubber bullets. we've also had tear gas fired. it is extremely dangerous situation at much of these hot spots in hosting, as well as the consumer natal province, where the concern really is the extent of the looting that we're seeing that appears to have stems from these protests against the imprisonment of former president jacob's duma but we've also heard from analysts and observers that this could be optimistic crime and that people are taking advantage of some of the protests that we're seeing. but i think what is specifically concerning is the
7:03 pm
difficulty police are having and trying to manage what's happening. and so we've had the deployment of soldiers to various hot spots, specifically in those 2 provinces. the cuban president is blaming outside forces and us sanctions for provoking the biggest anti government protest in 3 decades. the white house as the government to respect people's rights to demonstrate the police crime down on thousands of people calling for change in the capital. havana . there have been similar demonstrations all over the country. people are angry at the government handling of the corona virus pandemic. and the worst economic crisis in decades. loafing, nancy, i mean to care for you will receive the lack of finance for governance is due to the aggressive policy of blockade and financial persecution by the us being maintained by the government. and we have not been able to maintain and fix the power supply planning and it had to go, okay, let's look at was driven this protest movement. it is the biggest display of public
7:04 pm
discontents since that least the money cannot. so, uprising of 1994 that resulted in a mass exodus. cuba is experiencing its worth economic crisis in decades last year the economy contracted by 11 percent. that's partly because of us sanctions imposed by the trump administration. as of november 2017, they target businesses, but they also prevent people working overseas from sending money back to cuba. in january the island said the restrictions cost about $20000000000.00 has been made worse by the corona, virus pandemic, affecting tourism banana for the cuban economy. and there were shortages of medicine beds and doctors to deal with rise in cases of covert 19 rate. lindsey joins us now live from have an a. he's a journalist with betty of the beast and independent media organization that covers cuba and us cuban relations rate. good talk to you again. has the government in the immediate short term even begun to address some of these issues that the protesters
7:05 pm
are in effect raising while the canal, the president keeler spoke today? and he, i don't think there's much he can do to address the issues there. the government really has its hands tied with sanctions and the impact and coal that he did address the problems and talked about them. for example, explain that a lot of the blackouts were occurring because it increased demand for, for energy in the summer. but said the thermal electric plants, they couldn't get repair parts because they need to import the new block in, prevented the embargo prevented them from doing so. there's also been an oil blockade against cuba close by the united states under the trump administration, which continues and makes it very difficult for cuba to obtain oil. he mentioned, for example, the the production of medicine cheaper produce as most of its medicine. it also has 2 of the top 5 vaccines in the world as far as advocacy. that is, that has a very strong biotech sector, but so, but on a vac. seeing, for example,
7:06 pm
was delayed, the production was delayed because they were not able to obtain the raw materials needed to make that succeed. and he also addressed the issue of the foreign currency stores to buy created these foreign currency stores. but you can't use cuban pesos, but you need to come in, you need have dollars of girls to purchase things very unpopular among the population. one of the, one of the things mentioned among protesters is something that very angry about. and you can now agree that was not desirable, not something they wanted to do, but they were forced to do it because the embargo was basically a crowd them and made an extremely difficult to obtain foreign currency with its move back in 2017 the trumpet, ministration imposed these tough sanctions clearly having a big, big impact. not just on cubans in cuba, but also on cubans living and working in the states. what was the trumpet ministration, trying to achieve that? i mean, what was the particular problem with cuba?
7:07 pm
well, i think trump, in particular was trying to achieve winning florida. these policies for, for many years have been implemented not because they're necessarily effective in terms of advancing us interest. but because they play kate a part of the cuban american community in south florida, which can be decisive in election, in particular presidential election. that i would say, what is the main, the driving force a sensibly the idea is to essentially regime change. in addition to the thanks of us government for millions of dollars into what they call democracy promotion, but which in essence is. ready our efforts of regime change, funding, opposition groups and cuba and individuals that are, are trying to push for the overthrow of the government. and when it comes to any potential eating of the situation, you are telling us during our last show reads the do and use our program. the it
7:08 pm
was pretty quiet during the course of the past 81012 hours or so. but realistically, does it still feel like a very combustible situation? yeah, i think even before the protest, cuba was a tinderbox. that has been because the, the level of frustration and anger among the people has been rising and rising. before it came, the situation was pretty dire. and covert has made it unbearable for a lot of people. the shortages are unbelievable. they've extended to medicine in a way that they haven't before in recent months. and, and as a result, there's so much anger, so much frustration, most of it directed at the government, even though the u. s. government is and the sanctions have been the cause for a lot of the problems allows the anger is directed at the cuban government and, and as a result, i think that something is it would not surprise me if we see more. on the other
