Demonstrators Block Miami Highway in Solidarity With Cuban Protests

Protesters blocked the Palmetto Expressway in Miami, Florida, on Tuesday, July 13, in support of Cuba’s anti-government demonstrations over the country’s handling of the pandemic.

On Tuesday, Miami-Dade police said that the “obstruction of roadways is unacceptable and illegal.”

The Florida Highway Patrol announced the closure of the northbound side of the highway due to Tuesday’s protests.
