Cuba: Dissident rapper spends a second birthday in a Castro gulag

Via Capitol Hill Cubans:

Young Cuban Rapper Spends Another Birthday as Political Prisoner

Today is the 31st birthday of dissident rapper, Angel Yunier Remon.

It's the second birthday he spends as a Cuban political prisoner.

Yunier Remon, whose stage name is "el Critico del Arte" ("The Art Critic"), was attacked with tear gas and arrested on March 21st, 2013, for his criticism of the Castro regime.

In prison -- where he is being held without charges or trial -- Yunier has been continuously beaten, contracted various diseases, denied family visits and held naked in a punishment cell.

He has undertaken several hunger strikes to protest his cruel and arbitrary imprisonment.

Demand his freedom.
