Silence Is Not Golden

Cuban blogger Yoani Sánchez tells why she started her blog Generación Y, why it is hard to silence a blogger and why she continues to blog despite social and physical threats from the Cuban government. This week, the Cuban government arrested Sánchez and a half-dozen other bloggers attempting to report on the trial of a Spanish diplomat accused of killing a dissident in a car crash this summer. After human rights group condemned the detentions, and they began to receive widespread news coverage abroad, the government relented and released the bloggers.

Besides her blog, she has a YouTube channel that has received close to a million views. Visit at http://www.youtube.com/user/YoaniSanchez?feature=relchannel
