“City of Light!” and Birthplace of the Encyclopédistes” vs “City of Hard-Line Hate and Instransigence!”
A reading in Paris’ Maison de l’Amérique Latine de Paris, by Rafael Cerrato of his book, Amancer en la Higuera co-written with Cuban exiles Felix Rodriguez (Che Guevara captor) and Dariel Alarcon (former Che Guevara subaltern) has been abruptly canceled because of security concerns after many “serious threats.”
The book tells too many truths about Che Guevara, it appears. The land of the Enlightenment and the Encyclopedistes was not up to hearing them.
Entire story (in Spanish) from our tireless friend Zoe Valdes who (as usual) helped arrange and planned to host the (aborted) affair, here.
Imagine a book-reading by–say, Norberto Fuentes or Mariela Castro–canceled in Miami for similar reasons. Think it might get some press from the MSM and their pet Cuba “Experts?”
