Pedazos de la Isla has launched a new project to help secure the freedom of imprisoned Cuban dissident and rapper, Angel Yunier Remon. I seriously doubt Beyonce or Jay-Z will be joining this worthwhile campaign (they most likely don’t want to insult Cuba’s repressive apartheid dictatorship who hosted them), but that does not mean we cannot join in and Pass It On!
Pass it On: Angel Yunier Remon “El Critico”
As part of a new Project of this blog we launch “Pass it On” (‘Pasa la Voz’), an audio-visual series that aims to tell the story of Cubans with free minds. In this first edition, we dedicate the video to dissident rapper Angel Yunier Remon Arzuaga “El Critico de Arte”, member of the hip-hop duo ‘The Unwanted Children’, from Bayamo. “El Critico” has been imprisoned since March 2013 for handing out pro-freedom literature, as well as because of his protest music and constant activism. The young Cuban is also a member of the pro-freedom Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU). As of yet, he has not had a trial.
These videos are designed to be shared online, so feel free to Pass it On!
