An anti-communist Cuban protester briefly interrupted the May Day parade in Havana on Monday by sprinting ahead of thousands of pro-government marchers with a U.S. flag before he was beat up and dragged away, 100% Fed Up reports.
Daniel Llorente has previously made similar protests against Cuba’s communist regime and has been a vocal supporter of the U.S. government.
President Raul Castro was watching the parade with other Cuban leaders and foreign dignitaries when Miranda broke through security and ran ahead of the marchers.
Plainclothes officers quickly subdued Llorente and roughed him up before they hauled him away in front foreign and local journalists covering the event.
The Miami-based news outlet Martí Noticias said Llorente is a freelance cab driver and dissident, but is not a member of any dissident organizations.
He also protested when Barack Obama visited the country last year. Currently, Llorente’s whereabouts are unknown.
