“Screaming, frothing (but pro Juanes) “Cubans” arrested on Calle Ocho “
Our good friend Emilio Izquierdo (past Prez. of UMAP Prisoners Assoc.) who participated in the Calle Ocho pro/anti Juanes gig last Sunday discloses a fascinating datum regarding the aftermath.
Several pro-Juanes “Cubans” were arrested for indecent exposure, etc. But their names are being treated as classified material by both the Police dept. and the Miami Herald. Both are quite mum on the names of the arrested?
But AHHHHH!!!! Back in 1999 when anti-Castro Cuban-Americans peacefully protested the concert by Los Van Van, and some were arrested (including Emilio)–well, both the police dept. and the Miami Herald publicized their names and even their addresses with much fanfare.
The only thing missing was a plane with a fluttering banner of their names overhead, and a gang of winos distributing brochures of their names on street corners.
I’ve interrogated several Cuban-Americans who, “went down to that demonstration-to get their fair share of abuse..” and they unanimously report that the pro-Juanes people looked about as Cuban as Evo Morales, Cantinflas or (the early model) Olga Tanon.
