Spain: Artistic Freedom Suffers New Attack

A professional association of Guardia Civil agents has declared they will sue the musicians Josetxu Piperrak & The Riber Rock Band because of the lyrics of their song "OVNI" ("UFO"), which they consider offensive to their job. The lyrics in question go: "They are from another galaxy, another civilisation; they can't be human 'cause they have no heart; they have superpowers, something supernatural; they convert a fight in a bar into terrorism". The record company plans to remove the song from the market, and cancel its distribution through streaming platforms. Learn more here (in Spanish).
