His speech to the Little Havana crowd started with criticism of the Cuban embargo. He spoke over a loud chorus of protesters shouting,”shame on you” but Crist and his supporters countered the protesters by chanting back,”We love you.”
“We have to have good voices be heard in Florida again-people that understand that the people in Cuba are suffering.It’s a policy that has not worked. If you really care about people on the island, you need to get rid of the embargo and let freedom ring,” said Crist.
