Afraid, late, but sure


Someone sent me these photos through someone else; they are of Juan Juan Almeida walking down Quinta Avenue with his sign, “Democracy.” Even though they are from the back, it’s a good example of how information works in Cuba: an ordinary citizen manages to take hidden photos without having his camera seized, and the photos pass from hand to hand (from flash drive to flash drive) with the event that the photographer saw until, more than two weeks later, someone gives them to me.

I hope the photos and videos come to me, even if a month late, of what happened in the Karl Marx theater during the sale of tickets for the Lucas Award ceremonies.
