Protests have erupted against the communist regime in Cuba. As a result, there have been calls from the politically influential Cuban-American community to stand with the demonstrators. On Wednesday, pop star Pitbull released a video in which he expressed frustration about not being able to help his people achieve freedom and called for global business to step up. Pitbull was joined by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who wrote a letter to President Biden asking him to enlist American business in providing internet access to Cuba.
