"Nobody is in agreement…It’s that, no one says it and no one takes the risk to say it, to speak the truth. That’s what is happening. In other words, one of the foundations, of what are the regimes in the entire world, in all of history, has been fear and lies. In other words, once you are in fear that's when you don’t take a risk, where you collect yourself and don’t unite…understood? To be in fear is not to offer help to anyone because that signifies risk." -Gorki Águila Carrasco, lead singer, guitarist of the music group Porno Para Ricardo and political prisoner
"Socialist ideology, like so many others, has two main dangers. One stems from confused and incomplete readings of foreign texts, and the other from the arrogance and hidden rage of those who, in order to climb up in the world, pretend to be frantic defenders of the helpless so as to have shoulders on which to stand." --Jose Marti

Orlando Zapata

6x6 from wall to wall
shutters on the windows, no light at all
damp on the floor, you got damp in your bed
they're trying to get you crazy get you out of your head
and they feed you scraps, and they feed you lies
to lower your defenses, no compromise
nothing you can do, the day can be long
your body is working overtime your body's not too strong

Hold on
they put you in a box so you can't get heard
let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred
hold on
you have gambled with your own life
and you face the night alone
while the builders of the cages
sleep with bullets bars and stone
they do not see your road to freedom
that you build with flesh and bone

they take you out and the light burns your eyes
to the talking room-it's no surprise
loaded questions from clean white coats
their eyes are all as hidden as their Hippocratic Oath
they tell you how to behave, behave as their guest
you want to resist them, you do your best
they take you to your limits, they take you beyond
for all that they are doing there's no way to respond

Hold on
they put you in a box so you can't get heard
let your spirit stay unbroken, may you not be deterred
hold on
you have gambled with your own life
and you face the night alone
while the builders of the cages
sleep with bullets bars and stone
they do not see your road to freedom
that you build with flesh and bone

Though you may disappear you're not forgotten here
And I will say to you, I will do what I can do
and I will do what I can do
