Once again, we have another example of the monumental and groundbreaking reforms being instituted in Cuba by dictator Raul Castro, aka “The Reformer”: A 3 year prison sentence for listening to “unofficial” music.
2 brothers sentenced to prison for leading protest
Two brothers, Marcos Maikel y Antonio Michel Lima Cruz, were sentenced to prison terms this week after they were convicted of “public disorder” and “insulting national symbols.”
Their actual “crime” was marching through the streets of Holguin, complete with the uban flag, and chanting anti-government slogans while listening to the music of the Los Aldeanos. They have been in jail since last Christmas day.
Security officials blocked various dissidents from approaching the courthouse.
Marcos Maikel was sentenced to 3 years in prison, and Antonio Michel was sentenced to 2 years.
