“We want Cuba to be free. We want the kids like me to be safe. We want the end of communism,” said another boy.

“I can’t even imagine them pulling these kids out of their houses to be in the military, to be on the front lines. I think of my 10-year-old and that is why I am here,” said Francesca Gonzalez.
“I want to be able to take them to a free Cuba one day and show them the town where their grandparents grew up,” said Terresita Perez.
Before the Tropical Park rally, there was a silent march and protest for the people who have disappeared or been arrested in Cuba.
