Undocumented Cubans protesting in downtown

CubansWILLEMSTAD - 41 Cubans marched this morning to the Wilhelmina Square in downtown Punda because their residence papers are not in order. Most of them have stayed for eight years in Curacao without a permit, while it was promised to them by past government leaders.

They walked from the square to the government center, Fort Amsterdam to continue with their protest. They asked the Minister of Justice and the politicians to do something about their situation. The Cubans all showed up in white. According to their representative this is because they have all become ghosts here in Curacao. They have no passport, no permit and nowhere to go.

This has been their fourth protest.
