HAVANA TIMES — Renowned Cuban-American saxophone player Paquito D’Rivera expressed on Wednesday his opposition to criticism and actions by exiles in Miami directed against opposition blogger Yoani Sanchez.
“I think this is really silly for a group of Cuban exiles (…) to subject to a repudiation rally, the only person in 54 years who has taken the spotlight off the Castros,” the artist said in an article published in Café Fuerte.
D’Rivera asked “let’s be sensible and not let this opportunity slip by,” referring to the visit of Sanchez to the United States. He added, “I differ from many of the opinions of the famed blogger” but “I think everyone wants more or less the same. “
