Nice to see that Raul is being so much more tolerant than Fidel was:
Cuba has ordered jailed punk rocker Gorki Aguila, an outspoken critic of Fidel Castro and the communist government, to stand trial on Friday for “social dangerousness,” a charge that could carry up to four years in prison.
Authorities arrested the 39-year-old lead singer of Porno para Ricardo at his Havana home on Monday, shortly after the band had completed work on a new album. Cuban law defines “social dangerousness” as behavior contrary to “communist morality,” and police use it to detain offenders before they have a chance to commit a crime.
The story says the arrest has touched off an avalanche of criticism on blogs in Cuba and here and that musicians “also sent e-mails decrying the case.” That’ll show ’em. Digitally stand up to those tanks.
