Following up on Thursday's story, Cuban punk rocker Gorki Aguila has walked away from his trial with a 600 peso ($28 USD) fine (the average monthly income in Cuba is 408 pesos). The Porno Para Ricardo vocalist, a vocal critic of Fidel and Raul Castro, was arrested Monday on charges of "social dangerousness." He was facing up to four years in prison. More details are available from the AP.
Punk band Porno Para Ricardo was formed ten years ago and has built a reputation on ridiculing the island nations' communist government and it's leaders. At one time it's music was broadcast on state radio and TV, but the group was later banned and has resorted to smaller, underground concerts.
