Castro State Security violently arrests Cuban musician Gorki Aguila in Havana

Gorki Aguila, a Cuban punk rock musician and founder of the punk band Porno Para Ricardo, was violently arrested yesterday by Cuban State Security as he was about to release their newest album, El Maleconazo.

Punk Rocker Gorki Aguila Violently Arrested

Punk rocker Gorki Aguila, founder of the famed band Porno Para Ricardo, was violently arrested today as he planned to unveil his new album, "Maleconazo Ahora," referring to the massive 1994 protests in Havana's waterfront promenade.

Gorki was planning to unveil his new album tonight at his home, accompanied by an exhibit courtesy of graphic artist El Sexto.
Two police cars and two motorcycles were waiting for him as he left his girlfriend's home. They threw him up against the car and drove him away.

Here's a video from Gorki's new album:
