Video of the Day: San Isidro Movement artists call for all Cubans to take to the streets on Sunday to demand freedom

Surrounded by State Security agents and under siege in their Havana headquarters, the independent artists of the San Isidro Movement call on Cubans to take to the streets for freedom.

Via Democratic Spaces:

In Habana, Cuba a group of artists capture the world’s attention by showing how solidarity can inspire and galvanize a movement for freedom. In a press released posted on Facebook earlier today (Saturday, Nov 21, 2020) they demand the release of fellow artist and Cuban rapper Denis Solís, arbitrarily imprisoned and sentenced to 1 year in prison in retaliation for a public protest calling on Cubans to decide their own future.

Cuban artists are also protesting against extreme police harassment and persecution against them and call on Cubans across the island to show up (starting on Nov 22) to the central parks of each province to demand the freedom of Cuba. Human rights organizations such as Amnesty International and news outlets such as the Washington Post have already published the artists demands and show solidarity with their cause.

  1. See the diversity in that top photo? In this case, the usual suspects are totally (and willfully) color-blind. Their implicit response to such dissidents is the same as that of Joe Biden to a black person who seemed less than totally in the bag for his candidacy: “you ain’t black.” I’m sure the bad Negro in question was supposed to appreciate the condescending “ain’t” from a lily-white old fraud, I mean fart.
