A Worsening of Censorship

Friday, December 30, 2011
From the Inter-American Press Association's (IAPA) 2011 review of the state of press freedom:

Together with the impunity surrounding crimes committed in other years and the lack of action on the part of the authorities to deter those who resort to violence a vicious circle has been created that has given rise to high levels of self-censorship. Also noted are the few advances made regarding freedom of the press and of assembly in Cuba, a country where there was a worsening of censorship and violence against dissidents, independent journalists and bloggers.
