Fearlessly Blogging in Cuba

16 Apr

Blogger Yoani Sanchez has been chosen as one of this year’s recipients of the prestigious Ortega y Gasset Award in Journalism by the Spanish newspaper, El Pais. In her blog, Generacion Y, Sanchez ruminates, satirizes, and dreams about Cuban life from Habana. For those of us who have limited access to stories of Cuba due to restrictions on foreign reporters, travel restrictions on Cubans, and censorship within Cuba, the online journal provides a rare and thoughtful portrayal of the nation in transition.

I’d love to hear about other independent Cuban media outlets.
