Cuban playwright-turned-activist takes on the government for basic rights
The Communist party has banned the planned string of pro-democracy protests, saying they are an overthrow attempt
The Cuban playwright Yunior García has shot to fame over the past year, but not because of his art. The 39-year old has become the face of Archipelago, a largely online opposition group which is planning a string of pro-democracy marches across the island on Monday.
The Communist party has banned the protests – which coincide with the reopening of the country after 20 months of coronavirus lockdowns – arguing that they are a US-backed attempt to overthrow the government.
