Cuba: Yoani Sanchez Denied Visa

Havana Times reports that Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez has been denied a visa to leave the island, even though she “continues to be allowed to publish her Generation Y page with her acrid criticisms of the Cuban government”; diaspora blogger Uncommon Sense says that shouldn't stop people from honouring her: “The dictatorship may succeed in placing an embargo on Sanchez's right to travel freely, but it cannot silence her…read her blog, and tell others to do the same.”
