Cuban Blogger Launching Online Newspaper

Cuba’s best-known blogger says she will start publishing a general-interest newspaper online Wednesday. It’s a move that will test both the government’s openness to free expression and the dissident’s ability to build a following inside her country.

Yoani Sanchez and her husband Reinaldo Escobar say they have been working for months with a staff of nine and contributors from around the island to produce a regularly updated website and a weekly PDF of a newspaper dedicated to providing Cubans with essential information.

Escobar says there won’t be a print version.

The government has made no official comment on Sanchez’s plans, though it considers all dissidents to be mercenaries paid by Washington to stir up trouble.
