Anti-government protests in Cuba have made headlines around the world. But much of the media coverage has distorted the reasons why people are protesting and failed to explain what these demonstrations mean. I was at the July 11 protests in Havana along with my Belly of the Beast colleagues and since then we have been working non-stop to provide contextualized coverage of what is happening in Cuba and how it is related to U.S. policy.
Last year we produced and distributed a three-part documentary series called The War on Cuba, which provides crucial context to understand what is happening right now. That's because the U.S. government's war on Cuba continues, except now it is no longer Donald Trump, but Joe Biden who is leading it.
We depend on the generosity of our supporters to fund our work. Please consider making a contribution so that Belly of the Beast can continue to tell the stories of Cuba from the inside while we challenge mainstream narratives that are devoid of context and distort local realities.
