"Change is coming, it's as inevitable as rain in the summer and cold in the winter," Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez told Reuters in Havana.

Yoani's "Generacion Y" blog has earned international acclaim despite her constant censorship and harrassment by the Cuban authorities. In 2008, Yoani was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the world's most influential people.

She said Cuban dictator Raul Castro lacks Fidel's persuasive charisma and faces a big leadership test amidst the global economic squeeze.

"On the street you hear opinions or criticism now that you never would have heard two, three, four or five years ago. People are waking up."
