Cuban president denounces actions against Buena Fe duo in Spain

Cuban president denounces actions against Buena Fe duo in Spain

Havana, May 25 (Prensa Latina) President Miguel Diaz-Canel on Thursday joined the denunciations from Cuba of new actions and provocations against the Buena Fe duo in Spain.

‘They say that the haters who tried to boycott #BuenaFe in Spain, claimed loudly that I supported them in a tweet. Hatred does not let them know that #BuenaFeSomosTodos,’ (We are all Buena Fe), the Cuban leader stressed on his Twitter account.

Cuba’s Ministry of Culture called a press conference for Thursday afternoon to make clear the condemnation from artists and writers, organizations of creators and cultural institutions of the physical and verbal aggression against the Cuban musicians in Spain.

At a fast food restaurant in Barcelona on Wednesday, a few meters from where their last concert took place, the duo denounced in their social networks that they were the victims of insults and physical aggression, including death threats by enemies of the Cuban Revolution.

On Thursday, Cubainformacion reported that a group of people with fascist attitudes harassed the musicians, as a result of which several Cuban emigrants who oppose such actions came to support the duo and created a security cordon between the musicians and the violent aggressors.

Finally a complaint was filed against the aggressors, accompanied by a report of injuries, Cubainformacion noted.

Buena Fe performed in the popular neighborhood of Nou Barris in Barcelona and before that in Mataro, Catalonia, at the invitation of the CUP (Candidaturas de Unidad Popular), a political organization that wanted to show its support and solidarity.

After this violent event, which lasted nearly 20 minutes, Buena Fe gave one of the most emotional concerts of his tour in Spain and Israel Rojas made an effusive plea against the United States blockade against his homeland, as well as a denunciation of fascism that claims to act in the name of freedom’, he said.

A campaign promoted by Spanish media in support of the Cuban musicians resulted in the collection of more than 1,500 signatures of support, in repudiation of demonstrations against their concerts in Spain.

According to the original program of their tour, the duo will offer a free concert in Valencia next Monday, sponsored by the State Movement of Solidarity with Cuba, and finally in Madrid on June 3.
