Gloria Estefan is calling for global support for the people of Cuba.
Thousands of Cubans have taken to the streets to protest against a lack of access to food, medicine and rights in the country.
Estefan took to Instagram this week to share a message of condemnation against the Cuban government.
“My heart hurts for the Cuban people on the island & what they’ve already gone through for over 62 years. … But now they are saying ENOUGH,” she wrote.
“Despite the beatings, the murders & incarcerations, the abuses of power, the starvation & the attempted destruction of their spirits! They need our support & that of the democratic & free countries of the world.”
The Cuban-American singer concluded her post by adding, “The United Nations &, very especially, the United States, must strongly condemn the repressive & violent measures being taken by the Cuban government against their own people!”
