On Dec. 10, Human Rights Day 2013, about 30 Cuban hip-hop artists and more than 100 individuals gathered in front of the Cuban Institute of Music in Cuba to protest music censorship on the island.
The cancellation of the Dec. 12 "Puņos Arriba" music festival helped spark the protest. The music festival is known for hosting Cuban Hip Hop and Cuban Rap artists.
The nonprofit and nonpartisan organization Roots of Hope also is taking part in the organization of the protests against the Cuban government's music censorship.
Roots of Hope's mission is to bridge the gap between Cubans on and off the island and to organize academic and cultural initiatives to empower youth in Cuba, according to its web site.
