A Cuban dissident disrupted a May Day parade in the country on Monday by running through the crowd waving an American flag, per Breitbart.
What happened next is terrifying, as a mob celebrating the communist country attacked and beat him, then dragged him away.
Check it out:
The man, identified as Daniel Llorente, has previously waged similar protests against the communist regime of dictator Raúl Castro and has expressed vocally his support for the American government.
Video of the incident shows that Llorente took off running in front of the throngs, waving an American flag before the likeness of mass murderer Ernesto “Che” Guevara in the Plaza of the Revolution, waiting to march just moments before the May Day parade was to begin, shouting anti-government slogans. A group of men waiting on the sidelines, who have not been identified in reports, restrained, beat, and dragged Llorente away. Every major Cuban government leader, including dictator Castro, was in attendance.
Llorente has been known to use his American flag to protest other communist celebrations and events, but is not a formal member of any dissident organizations.
Here’s a video of the event:
