Solidarity Protest Held in Madrid for Planned Cuba Demonstrations

A crowd gathered in Madrid to demonstrate in solidarity with organized protests in Cuba on November 15.

Media reported the protests in Cuba failed to occur as Cuban dissidents stayed home in the face of government pressure.

Protest organisers posted on social media a video which they described as showing pro-government demonstrators stopping a dissident from leaving his house.
