Fidel Castro wages war on Cuban bloggers

First, there was this offensive salvo launced, as noted in Gateway Pundit:

Back in February Fidel Castro was awarded the Computer Youth Club Award for being the father of this movement in Cuba.

Also awarded the prize was his brother and fellow tyrant Raul Castro.

Then, there was this, courtesy of Babalu Blog: Cuban bloggers, an endangered species?

Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez has been attacked today by THE official Cuban journalist, Rosa Miriam Elizalde in Cubadebate site. That’s not the first time, but is a good example of the official point-of-view about independent blogging in Cuba.

Now there’s this, courtesy of the Sun-Sentinel in South Florida: Cuba cutting Internet access :

“Internet use is only for foreigners for the time being,” said a worker at the Hotel Nacional’s business center. “According to a new order from ETECSA [Cuba’s telecom monopoly] only foreigners can surf the web at hotels.”

But hey, let’s just lift the embargo and everything will be alright!
