  • A statement of principles from one who suffered 17 years and 38 days of
  • political imprisonment in Cuba.

I will not shut up because I will continue to raise my voice and to denounce and resist, peacefully but directly, the totalitarian regime in Cuba

the Cuban government doesn’t want its

citizens to know.

Yoani Sanchez followed via Twitter the upheaval in Egypt that ultimately led to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak and responded with her own tweets.

"What a great lesson the Egyptians are giving us!" she wrote.

Sanchez has won a huge global audience with her blog "Generation Y," which criticizes the Cuban government and comments on daily hardships.

The next time you call your mom on your cellphone, send your friends emails, or use a computer to find out what’s happening around the world, remember the people of Cuba. The communist regime doesn’t want Cubans citizens using technology. They want to keep them in the dark .
