Cubans on the Caribbean Island have taken to the streets in the communist nation Sunday to protest their government.

Most of the folks here are calling for U.S. intervention in Cuba.

"We want Biden to listen to us and to do something about it because we need the government to take action," Robert Reynaldo said.

The folks here said seeing everyone coming together to support Cuba gives them hope and expectations for a brighter and better day in Cuba.
