Cuba Arrests U.S. Flag Protester for Trying to Help Tornado Victims

Police arrested Daniel Llorente, a Cuban dissident who spent over a year imprisoned in a psychiatric facility for waving a U.S. flag at the 2017 communist May Day parade, on Sunday after he appeared in the devastated Havana neighborhood of Regla and attempted to provide aid to those affected by this month’s tornado.

Cuban dissident Daniel Llorente Miranda, an anti-communist, pro-American protester, has been placed in one of the nation’s most notorious mental institutions following his interruption of the annual May Day parade, where he ran down the parade route waving an American flag.
