Help Stop February 11 Summary Show Trial for Cuban Punk Rocker Gorki Aguila

John Suarez in Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter:

Help Stop February 11 Summary Show Trial for Cuban Punk Rocker Gorki Aguila

  "Summary Trial...Injustice" - Gorki Luis Aguila Carrasco, over Facebook, February 3, 2014

On September 30, 2013 agents of the Castro regime arrested Gorki Luis Aguila Carrasco and confiscated medication prescribed to him by a Mexican doctor for epilepsy that the Cuban punk rocker has suffered with since childhood. In a Cubanet interview on October 16, 2013 Gorki explained his situation: "I don't know what they accuse me of, nor do I have a trial date." That has now changed. On a citation for summary judgement dated January 27, 2014 Gorki is called to attend a summary trial on February 11, 2014 where he will stand as the accused. Under the rules of the game of the Castro regime he is already guilty. It is up to all of us to campaign for his freedom.

Citation for Gorki Aguila to attend summary trial on February 11, 2014

Gorki the lead singer for "Porno para Ricardo" posted the following messages over facebook along with a photo of the citation:

Citation for summary judgement...one of the many planned injustices of the regime .... For February 11 in the summary hall of Marianao.
The regime in a "prudent" way waited for the CELAC event to end in order not to have the discomfort of a media frenzy as it did in 2008.

SUMMARY TRIAL...INJUSTICE!

Gorki Luis Águila Carrasco is a Cuban punk rocker and front man for the group "Porno para Ricardo" that translates to "Porn for Richard." His music is loud, fast paced, political, and an anathema for the dictatorship in Cuba.
