Cuban citizen blogger back on line

Cuban blogger Yoani Sabchez has been able to move her blog "Generacion Y" to an offshore server and it is available again (in Spanish) here. She had received over 1.2 million visits before being shut down in Cuba, even though few Cubans have Internet access. Michael Moore, remember, had celebrated the Cuban health care system in his documentary "Sicko".

Raul Castro is supposedly lifting restrictions on the purchase of high tech devices inside Cuba. But nevertheless the clampdown on Internet expression had continued after Fidel's death, just as it has in other totalitarian and Muslim countries (like Egypt).

Family member Aldofo Fernandez Sainz had been one of 75 citizen journalists jailed five years ago.
