Demand for Justice Raised in Cuba Around Murdered Afro-US Youth

HAVANA TIMES, April 4 — Participants at the International Nicolas Guillen Symposium and Festival of Music and Poetry on Tuesday called for justice in the case of the murder of Trayvon Martin, an African-American teenager who was killed in Florida by a racist vigilante.

US delegate Omari Musa said the growing economic crisis in his country has produced new varieties of semi-legalized racist gunmen.

The shooting death of Martin on February 26 by the white vigilante, George Zimmerman, has generated an international protest movement.

“We have the mission of making our contribution to Martin’s family with the participation of our delegates from the United States,” said Nicolas Hernandez Guillen, the president of the Nicolas Guillen Foundation, which is sponsoring the event.

  • For anyone that is interested….
    I am an audio guy..

    I took the 911 call with the most audio informatiion regarding screams, compressed it, ran it at half speed and pitch corected it 100 percent.. even though it runs slower (just a tenth over half speed) anyone with an ear for music can tell not a note has been changed.. Digital affords you this luxury. In the analog days we had to physically slow the tape/medium down and you lose pitch and clarity.

    Anyway, what I find most interesting is the ghastly scream at about 1:12 right after the final shot.\.

    THIS AUDIO IS NOT ENHANCED per sey.. not like enhancing a photo.. the only enhancing has been to adust volume levels so you don’t hurt your ear listening to everything at relative volume levels.

    There are a few swirling artifacts in this copy because I had to compres the wav file to a 128 kbps mp3 to fit on my page so you had a player to hear it on.. These artifacts are slight and will not distract.

    The 911 call as you have never heard it before, draw your own conclusions. Listen for the scream after the shot.

    Again, draw your own conclusions, I am not here to change any minds tonight. This exercise is just a way to access the call and hear things you would not of just listening to the raw recording.
