Leftist youths disrupt Raul Rivero speech at Sevilla

A group of some 20 leftist youths, members of a “solidarity with Cuba”
group, charged into the University of Sevilla’s conference room and
disrupted a speech by poet and exiled Cuban Raul Rivero on
Monday. Rivero called them “a metathesis of Castroism,” and the
university expressed its “most energetic condemnation of the incidents,
provoked by persons from outside the university.” The disruptors shouted
Rivero down, calling him a “terrorist.” Rivero told Digital, “A
year ago, when I came to , something similar happened at the
Granada poetry festival. But after they shouted their slogans, I was
able to continue speaking. Yesterday was different, because they managed
to keep me from expressing my opinion.” Rivero declared, “The Cuban
government is based on lies and cheap propaganda. That’s why it is
afraid of words and the truth.”
