This year, the Cuban state shut down sanctioned #PRIDE celebrations and when people began to organize their own, they arrested two anarchist and #LGBTQ organizers, labeling them "counter-revolutionaries" and paid agents of the US, reports @BRRN_Fed. itsgoingdown.org/cuban-state-ar…
In #Cuba, PRIDE celebrations are run by CENESEX, which is headed by Mariela Castro, the daughter of Cuban Communist Party leader Raul Castro. This year under pressure from Church groups, the celebrations were shut down.
In response, people began to self-organize their own celebrations, events, and parades. The State banned the celebrations and broke up PRIDE after only several blocks of marching. theguardian.com/world/2019/may…
Two anarchists are also arrested, attacked in pro-State press, and accused by the government as being "counter-revolutionaries" and paid US agents.
These actions are part of a long history of repression by the Cuban State against both anarchists and the queer and trans community of Cuba. blackrosefed.org/cuba-demonizat…
