Thursday, March 21, 2013
In an interview with TV Marti, Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez clarified that she supports the lifting of U.S. sanctions -- but not without pre-conditions.

Q:  Are you in favor of lifting the embargo without conditions?

Yoani: I am not if favor of that, I think that it is clear that there should be conditions [for the lifting the embargo] and that there should be a long process of debate before doing so.

Moreover, she stated her satisfaction in meeting with U.S. Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Marco Rubio (R-FL) and their understanding of the need to help the Cuban people find ways to freely access the Internet.
