(RCN) Cubans living in the Cayman Islands took to the streets in George Town, early on Saturday morning. Broadly, Cubans are protesting against food shortages, rising cases of Covid-19 and severe electricity blackouts in the country, which they attribute to the government’s failure to cope with the situation.
