Dying for freedom


When Soviet communism started to crumble, life in Cuba took a turn for the rougher. Especially for those, who listened to music of the enemy - the punk rockers, freaks of rock, los frikis.

Socialismo y Muerte (DK) by Jorgo Kapow tells the story of a small group of Cuban punk rockers, who rebel against poverty and oppression by choosing to inject themselves with HIV-infected blood. Better to suffer the slow death in the freedom of the Sanatoriums than the empty life under Castro's regime."

"I wanna live free! They are kicking me out, they are beating me out, they don't want me to live like a rocker here. They are doing a lot of things to me. I am going to do a lot of things to them... Socialism or death? Death is a door. When you don't have any more doors to open, death is a door.""
~ Papo La Bala - from Radiolab: Los Frikis ~
