Slovak celebrities will spend time in a cage on Bratislava’s Hviezdoslavovo Square to demonstrate solidarity with Cuban political prisoners. The event has been organised by the Pontis Foundation and the People in Peril civic association.
The event will take place on March 16 between 11:00 and 15:00 to mark the fourth anniversary of a massive wave of arrests of the opponents of Fidel Castro's regime.
Pontis Program Director Ivan Kuhn said that groups of two and three famous Slovaks will spend time locked in this cage. Among the "prisoners" will be Slovak MEPs Peter Šťastný, Monika Flašíková-Beňová and Anna Záborská, Slovak MPs Pavol Hrušovský, Gyula Bárdos and Martin Fedor, film director Juraj Johanides, actors Boris Farkaš and Matej Landl, political scientist Miroslav Kusý and priest Anton Srholec.
