Cuba: Rapper ‘El Critico’ released from prison
After nearly two years in prison, Cuban rapper Angel Yunier Remon Arzuaga, best known as ‘El Critico’ from the underground hip-hop duo The Unwanted Children, has been released, along with several other political prisoners across the island.
Remon was sent to prison in March 2013 after a violent, allegedly government-organised, mob attacked his home in the Eastern town of Bayamo.
“The reasons for his incarceration were his protest lyrics, his public demonstrations against the Cuban system and for painting signs outside his home reading “Freedom” and “Down with Fidel”,” wrote Pedazos de la Isla.
