  • asombra: It’s painful to see this kind of ambivalence, not to say equivocation, from a Cuban this late in the game. Not a good sign.

  • asombra: If the Netherlands was prepared to disgrace itself with a royal visit to Maduro, it was hardly likely to play hardball here.

  • asombra: Still, this venomous old fart could do a Chico Escuela and go “the revolution been berry, berry good to me.”

  • asombra: “Hero of the Republic of Cuba,” is he? You don’t say. Let’s ignore the “hero” bit, which is...

  • asombra: The UN is like a known whore legally able to ply her trade, who doesn’t need to pretend she’s anything else.

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

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.
