This Cuban hip-hop song (see video below), has become one of the unofficial anthems for young people in Cuba. The song’s title “Patria y Vida” offers a powerful symbolic rebuttal to the official Cuban revolution’s slogan of “Patria o Muerte,” made famous by Fidel in the 1960s. Inspired by this song, thousands of ordinary Cubans took to the streets and defied the State Police on Sunday (July 11) to demand freedom. (See this report, for example, via The Havana Times.) Down with Diaz-Canel! Down with the Dictatorship! ¡Viva Cuba Libre!
