No net for you.

I wonder why the castro government would have a problem with someone using their 100% literacy:

HAVANA, March 18 (Roberto Santana Rodr?guez / www.cubanet.org) – Two dissidents were stopped last week by police officers after leaving the U.S. Interests Section where they had surfed the Interet.

Ibrahim Pina Borges of the Nacional Christian Alliance said a police captain asked to see his identity card. Pina Borjes told the officer that this violated his human rights, but the agent replied he was just following orders.

Roberto de Jes?s Guerra P?rez, the Havana South delegate of the Marti Current, said two officers asked for his identity papers, which he refused to produce. When asked what he was doing at the Interests Section, he said he was studying journalism.

  1. Maybe they were registering the warranty for their new rice cookers on the manufacturer’s website.

  2. Not trying to be funny, but how did the police know they were surfing the Internet while inside a secured US facility? Are we letting spies work within USIS’s (US Interest Section) walls?

  3. With all due respect KillCastro,
    Rather, I would be asking Cason. Would have been quite negligent on his part.

  4. “Two dissidents were stopped last week by police officers after leaving the U.S. Interests Section where they had surfed the Interet.”

    That’s two different statements there.

    1. They left the US Interests Section
    2. They had surfed the internet.

    Nothing to indicate the two Cuban cops knew what they were doing there, only that they had been there.

  5. All internet transactions and communications are monitored in Cuba by a special department within the G2. Meaning, they have personnel that instead of standing in line to buy their rice cookers are actually monitoring e-mails, IMs and surfing. The same with snail mail and phone calls. That’s where the monies go in that country. Nothing amazing, they will monitor the communications at, to and from, inside and outside USIS as a first priority, so they know who is on the net, when and doing what.
    Plus the vast network of chivatos.
    Just visualize no embargo for a second… it would be the American tax payer subsidizing the repression next door. No good.
