The best of journalism

At my blog, I try to provide as many updates as possible on Cuba’s independent press, especially the more than 25 journalists imprisoned in the gulag. As a Cuban and as a journalist, my admiration for these men, in jail for doing their jobs too well, has no bounds.

The imprisoned journalists, like other political prisoners, get the worst the dictatorship has to deliver, but with a pride and sense of defiance that astounds, they stay on their beats, informing the outside world of the horrors of Cuba’s prisons.

Men like Raimundo Perdigón Brito and Juan Carlos Herrera Acosta . represent the best of journalism, and the best of Cuba.

For more on Cuba’s imprisoned journalists, read Reporters Without Borders.
