Blogging flourishes in Cuba as a new generation writes critically about social and economic issues, leaving behind a generation of leaders over 70 who do not fully understand the phenomenon, says a new report by the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ).The report, “Chronicling Cuba, bloggers offer fresh hope,” sees blogging in Cuba as a new space for independent ideas where citizens write about food shortages, health care, education, housing problems and lack of Internet access; issues that are not covered in the politically sanctioned press.
