Quote of the day

From an article entitled Yoani Sanchez Does Not Represent the Cuban Woman written by Cuban journalist, Tania Quintero (my translation):

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-amaOcgJWrxM/UN1FHLYhuuI/AAAAAAAA0zs/pMVTS5TCN1I/s1600/taniaquinteroblog.jpg
"That I know of, [Yoani Sanchez] is not a symbol of the opposition nor independent journalism within Cuba. Neither is she a symbol of the Cuban exile community that is scattered in various cities throughout the world. At best, she symbolizes alternative bloggers, a particular segment of the dissidence and the exile community. This is because for someone to be a symbol, they have to represent the totality of the people, not just a group of their admirers."
