We are launching a BUCL.org publicity campaign in support of the Cuban dissident punk rocker Gorki Aguila who was arrested in Havana yesterday and is reportedly going to stand trial for “dangerousness” on Thursday. Aguila could face up to 4 years in prison if the Cuban kangaroo court deems it.
For those who aren’t aware, Aguila is the front man for a punk rock group called Porno Para Ricardo whose lyrics are harshly critical of the regime. That’s why he’s one of our heroes here at Babalu.
The purpose of BUCL.org is to pool resources (money) to amplify our message. In order to put an official press release on the news wires it takes about $500 and we also like to do a Spanish release on the Hispanic news wires which effectively doubles the cost. We are looking for 20 sponsors at $50 each. If you are interested drop me an email.
