#FreeThePress: U.S. State Dept. recognizes independent journalist in Cuba

Via HUMANRIGHTS.GOV:

Roberto de Jesus Guerra

Free the Press 2014: Journalist Roberto Jesus Guerra and indendent media outlet Hablemos Press

Roberto de Jesus Guerra is an activist, blogger, human rights defender, and Director of the independent Hablemos Press. Independent press remains illegal in Cuba, and independent journalists reporting for Hablemos Press constantly face numerous challenges in their efforts to report on activism and the human rights situation on the island, due to the Cuban government’s use of short term detentions, blocking of new media, and monopoly on traditional media. Guerra alone has been detained over 100 times for his efforts to freely share information.

We call on the Government of Cuba to end its use of arbitrary detentions, at times with violence, to silence independent voices and unduly restrict freedom of expression and of the press.
