Cuba denies "Generation Y" blogger right to travel


“Generation Y” is a blog for people in Cuba for people with names containing “Y”, with link here.

The Cuban government has refused Yoani Sánchez permission to travel to New York to receive an international journalism award. The Amnesty International link for the story (“Blogger denied freedom to travel outside Cuba) is here. Cuba has also blocked access to the blog within the country, but reportedly there are many workarounds to the block, some of which have been covered here before (and by Electronic Frontier Foundation), in conjunction with similar blocks in Iran.

The story was also carried this morning Oct. 14 on CNN’s American Morning.
