Havana, May 29, (RHC) – Social media activists on Saturday condemned the plans of the anti-Cuban far-right in Florida, USA, to sabotage the pre-Olympic baseball tournament in West Palm Beach, and attack Cuban baseball players who participate in the event.
Under the name Cuban Warrior, a netizen quoted on his YouTube account international journalists covering the sporting event, telling him that he was intimidated by the growing threats of attacks, instigated by local politicians, against athletes on the Caribbean island.
The activist called on the FBI and other state and federal agencies in Florida to take the necessary steps to ensure the safety of Cuban athletes.
The complaint refers to unscrupulous elements who from their social media accounts urged their followers to attend Monday’s match at West Palm Beach Stadium, to harass members of the Caribbean national team.
“It’s a great blast of liberties of all kinds,” he said.
Cuba will make its debut on Monday 31 May against Venezuela in this qualifying tournament which gives the champion a direct ticket to the Tokyo 2020 Games.
