US Rep Rivera, exile groups protest Milanes show
Question of the Day
MIAMI (AP) - A coalition of small exile groups and U.S. Rep. David Rivera are asking local authorities to cancel the first Miami concert of famed Cuban artist Pablo Milanes.
Tuesday’s demand comes days after a Cuban appellate court upheld the 15-year prison sentence of a U.S. government sub-contractor for bringing satellite and other communication equipment into the country illegally.
In response, hardline groups have stepped up efforts to get President Barack Obama to halt cultural exchanges with the island, including events such as Milanes‘ concert. Milanes is one of Cuba’s most famous musicians, one of the founders of the folk music known as Nueva Trova.
The U.S. could deny his visa but has given no indication it will.
Concert Promoter Hugo Cancio says the show will go on.
