Cubans Watching Venezuelan and U.S. Elections; Their Own, Not So Much

| Posted 10.04.2012 | World

If the Venezuelan results will decide whether we are granted billions in subsidies, and our relationship with our powerful neighbor to the north is in play in those elections, the Cuban elections smell strongly of a play whose script is already written.

| Posted 10.09.2012 | Canada Quebec

Nous venons d'être libérés!! 30 heures de détention et beaucoup d'anecdotes à raconter. Ils voulaient m'empêcher d'aller au procès d'Ángel Carromero. Cependant, en m'arrêtant, ils me permettaient en réalité d'expérimenter d'un point de vue journalistique l'autre côté de l'histoire : vivre dans la peau d'Ángel Carromero, comment se structure la pression autour d'un détenu. Voir de mes propres yeux les tactiques d'un Département d'Instruction du Ministère de l'Intérieur.

Twitter a (encore) essayé de tuer Fidel Castro

| Posted 10.23.2012 | France

CUBA - Je vous le disais déjà sur Twitter, la rumeur de la mort du Comandante resurgit. Les rumeurs, toujours les rumeurs... Un jour, mes petits-enfants me demanderont "Comment il s'appelait mamie... comment il s'appelait? Gastro...?! Mastro...?!".
