Report: FL Gov. DeSantis Wants to Provide Cuba with Internet Following Gov't Shutdown

On Tuesday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told members of the Cuban community in Miami that he would like to get Florida internet companies to help the citizens in Cuba by beaming internet services to the groups coordinating protests.

His comments are in response to Cuba's dictator blocking social media sites on Sunday in order to prevent citizens from coordinating with each other to protest the oppressive regime.

“On Monday, Cuban authorities were blocking Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram, and Telegram said Alp Toker, director of Netblocks, a London-based internet monitoring firm,” ABC News reported. They added that while Twitter does “not appear to be blocked,” the Cuban government is able to restrict access.

The DailyWire reports:

DeSantis told Cuba’s exile community on Tuesday night that he is trying to convince Florida companies to beam in access to the internet, providing secure, open networks to Cuban dissidents so that they can continue to organize, even if the government moves in to shut down communication.

“What does the regime do when you start to see these images? They shut down the internet. They don’t want the truth to be out, they don’t want people to be able to communicate,” DeSantis said, according to the Miami Herald. “And so one of the things I think we should be able to do with our private companies or with the United States is to provide some of that internet via satellite. We have companies on the Space Coast that launch these things.”

DeSantis did not specify how a company would be able to restore social media access to Cuba’s dissidents, but he did say that he would make a few calls to “see what are the options.”

In his speech, the Herald added, DeSantis refuted the White House’s contention that the protests are motivated by a lack of COVID-19 care, and that food and medicine shortages happened in a vacuum, divorced from larger, ongoing issues with the island’s Communist government.

“Everyone here is in agreement in all of these fundamental truths and one of those truths is the people who are out in the streets revolting are not complaining about a lack of vaccine or for some tangential issue,” DeSantis added. “They’re revolting against a corrupt, communist dictatorship that has ruled that island with an iron fist for over 60 years.”
