the island of the Caribbean island, after the government and its critics fought for greater political freedoms, with the move to the international tourism market on Monday, as two opposition groups protested for a greater political freedoms, making for a tense debate for the government and its critics.

Dissidents have waited months of months to call a "Civic March for Change" in protests of the street in July, the largest on the island since ten decades. In the past month, a group of Dissidents launched a Miami March for the Change of Rights, after protesting a street protest in July in July, the largest of the island's decades.

The Communist Party of Cuba bans planned demonstrations on Monday, saying they're part of an destabilization campaign the United States continues to implement. U.S. officials have denied that.

Those residents no major rallies on the island at noon, but dissidents embraced social media to protest mainly in 10 cities across Cuba, from Havana to Pinar del Rio and Guantanamo.

In Havana there was a large increase of uniforms and uniformed police, although streets were quieter than usual as parents kept kids at home.

I decided to give my 6-year-old mom the right time to leave school because I was worried something could happen, said the state worker.

The protester's intent on Sunday, a Facebook group called Archipielago, fled the protest movement.

On Sunday, the house of Yunior Garcia, a playwright and archipielago leader, surrounded by supporters of Government on Sunday. That prevented him from marching alone, as he had planned, to draw support for peaceful marches.

Neither Garcia nor his wife answered their phones on Monday. Garcia's neighborhood was quiet and his building still surrounded with Cuban flags that government supporters hung from the rooftop one day before, according to a Reuters witness.

Some residents say that their neighborhoods were quiet, but Garcia and others had asked Cubans to speak to their voices on Sunday afternoon and to bang pots in the evening.

Dissidents again call for Cubans to bang pots on Monday at 8 p.m.

The government blew a nerve in the aftermath of the protests - the same day the company is opening its doors the same day the roads and the schools are starting to reopen following the pandemic.

Increasingly, activists opposed to suicide bombings aimed at the homes of dissidents about early Monday, according to rights groups and social media reports.

After it emerged that the group, who reacted with the army in support of the government, uploaded the video on Facebook showing the government's supporters gathering outside the home of Santa Clara. In the video, the group called him a traitor, warned him against marching. Gonzalez yelled back, telling them they would march for free.

A.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken condemned "intimidation tactics" in Cuba on Sunday ahead of the planned march and vowed that Washington would seek "accountability" for the crackdown.

"We call on the Cuban government to respect the Cubans' rights, and enable them to assemble peacefully, and to keep the internet and telecommunications open," said Blinken in the statement.

Bruno Rodriguez replied on twitter and told the United States to stay outside Cuba.

Eunice Pulles, dressed in a white shirt on the street of Havana to show her support for the dissident movement, says she thinks she thinks most would be too intimidated by police and government supporters to join her in protest.

"There are no protests because the people fear that we'll be repressed," she said.
