Cuba To Put Punk Rocker On Trial For "Social Dangerousness"

I have just read the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news website and found out that Cuba will be putting a punk rocker named Gorki Aguila on trial tomorrow for "social dangerousness". Aguila, who fronts the band Porno para Ricardo, has been an outspoken critic of the Castro regime - both Fidel and Raul. He was previously arrested for his political activities in 2005. (

"Social dangerousness" is considered a breach of "standards of communist morality." Now there's an oxymoron.

My question is where are the Hollywood actors who decry infringement of artistic freedom?

I guess they are too busy wearing Che Guevara T-shirts.
