Entrevista a Waldemar Cubilla

TAMBIÉN SOMOS NICHOS DE CULTURA#EspecialResistenciaCarcelaria#CUSAM"Es cotidiano escuchar una noticia o información sobre el delito, la pena o la cárcel y que sea referenciada a La Carcova. Ahora ya grande y licenciado, entiendo que La Carcova también referencia en educación, cultura, arte y organización social.", Waldemar Cubilla, sociólogo del CUSAM – Centro Universitario San Martín, Unidad Penal N° 48 del Servicio Penitenciario Bonaerense.Producción: Emergentes
