Cuban rapper jailed for 17 months and counting for saying what others won't

"I did not invent the acts of repudiation / I did not sink the 13 de Marzo tug / I was not the one who killed Boitel / I am not guilty for Mariel / I do not repress those who think differently / I did not lock up 75 innocent people / Look how many offenses you have kept hidden under lock and key/ Yes this is my crime /To talk about what you have not." - El Critico, member of Los Hijos Que Nadie Quiso

 Angel Yunier Remón Arzuaga "El Critico"
Marc Masferrer of the blog Uncommon Sense offers an update on the imprisoned activist and rapper known as  "El Critico."

The tortures continue for imprisoned Cuban activist/rap singer El Critico

Every day he is held in a Cuban prison without getting his day in court -- even if it is a Castro court -- is a day of torture for political prisoner Angel Yunier Remon Arzuaga, the activist and rap singer known as "El Critico."  It's just that some days are worse than others.

For example, in a recent telephone call to the Hablemos Press news agency Remon described how 10 guards grabbed him from his cell, splashed his eyes with pepper spray, bound his arms and then forcibly shaved his face and cut his hair.

Remon has been imprisoned for more than 17 months without trial since his arrest on March 26, 2013, during a police raid on his home. Prosecutors have charged him with "assault" and asked for an 8-year prison
