Free Cardet poster flashed on to giant screens at Metallica concert in Miami

 Shout out for Cuban dissidents during Metallica concert

Poster that was flashed up on the big screen during the Metallica concert in Miami
 Metallica's World Wired Tour stopped in Miami this past Friday opening with Hardwired, the song of their new album Hardwired ... to Self Destruct. The band posted their setlist for the night on Twitter.
On several occasions images flashed up on the giant screen that left heavy metal fans scratching their heads. FREE CARDET was seen several times on the giant screen broadcast to tens of thousands of fans during the concert in the Hard Rock Stadium. Who is Cardet? many fans asked.  He is a medical doctor, husband and father of two imprisoned since November 30, 2016 following a brutal beating in front of his family for criticizing the legacy of Fidel Castro.

 This is what the human rights organization Amnesty International has to say about Eduardo Cardet:
Dr. Eduardo Cardet Concepción, leader of the Christian Liberation Movement (Movimiento Cristiano Liberación, MCL) since 2014 was sentenced to three years in prison on 20 March. He was arrested in Holguín on 30 November 2016, five days after the death of the former leader of Cuba, Fidel Castro. He has since been held in the provisional prison (prisión provisional) of Holguín and will remain there while he carries out the appeals.
Below is a picture of Eduardo Cardet and an excerpt of the statement he made following the death of the Cuban dictator that led to his unjust prison sentence and his status as an Amnesty International prisoner of conscience.


The concert was amazing and the band ended the night with a video thank you to Miami.
