to explain,

Garcia participated in the November 27, 2020 protests in front of the Ministry of Culture in Havana and then on July 11.

Cuban dissident artist Junior Garcia arrived in Spain, Wednesday, after the authorities prevented him from leaving his home on Sunday, and carried out acts of disavowal to avoid a march that he had announced alone.

The playwright confirmed in a message he posted on Facebook that they “arrived with his wife, Diana Prieto, to Spain alive, in good health, and with sound thoughts,” although he did not give details.

Spanish government sources had informed various news agencies of Garcia’s arrival in Madrid on a “tourist visa”, which caught the attention of some given that governments do not usually report on tourist trips in their personal capacity.

Later, official journalists published photos of the playwright with a suitcase at Havana airport.
