Radio communications jammed in Cuba amid ongoing protests against Communist regime

“I always look for the best empty frequency, and I talk at 1.2kw, I know they are listening to me because I have had feedback from Cuba and they say they are listening to me.”

The lines of communication between Cuba and the rest of the world are being cut off. Reports indicate this is intentionally done by those in power on the island.

According to Breitbart, the Communist government of Cuba has used “high-power jamming equipment” to scramble radio operators on the opposition side of the conflict. These methods were enacted in the first place after online communications for the Cuban people were restricted amid the unrest.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Thursday urged President Biden to bring internet access to Cuba so their government’s dissenters can speak freely with the rest of the world.

Speaking to Breitbart was Cuban exile Alex Valladares. He told them after making contact with Cubans on shortwave frequencies, it soon became “completely flooded with high-power noise.” A similar pattern of obstruction followed Valladares wherever he tried to, and adapt.

“[The interference] is following me and following the Cuban people when they have their daily nets. They don’t want the people to communicate in Cuba, that’s why they cut off the internet and all sorts of media is blocked … They tried to block any signal there because they don’t want the Cuban people – many who have homemade radios – they don’t want them to listen to the exiles in Miami like me, and many others around Florida delivering the world to them.”

His primary concern is for the future wellbeing of people on the island. Valladares vowed to Breitbart he’d continue attempts to make contact with the Cuban people in the days ahead.

In response to the protests, Black Lives Matter condemned the United States government instead of Cuba’s communist regime. The often outspoken Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez issued a similar message calling for the USA to end sanctions against the country. At the outset of the anti-communist uprising earlier this week, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel issued a call-to-arms for counter-protesters to strike back.

Cuban activists have stressed that what’s going on is not about vaccines or the embargo, but indeed about rebelling against the ruling class.

See for yourself.

Canadian Leader Justin Trudeau has refused to take a hardline stance against the Cuban government throughout this week, as well.
