Cuba has the most restrictive laws on free speech and press freedom in the Americas. The constitution prohibits private ownership of media and allows free speech and journalism only if they “conform to the aims of a socialist society.” Article 91 of the penal code imposes lengthy prison sentences or death for those who act against “the independence or the territorial integrity of the state,” and Law 88 for the Protection of Cuba’s National Independence and Economy imposes up to 20 years in prison for committing acts “aimed at subverting the internal order of the nation and destroying its political, economic, and social system.”

The vast majority of internet users have access only to a closely monitored Cuban intranet, consisting of an encyclopedia, email addresses ending in “.cu” used by universities and government officials, and a few government news websites. Outside hotels, only a few privileged individuals have a special permit to access the international network of the World Wide Web. The regime threatens anyone connecting to the Internet illegally with five years in prison, while the sentence for writing “counterrevolutionary” articles for foreign websites is 20 years.

Laws criminalizing “enemy propaganda” and the dissemination of “unauthorized news” are used to restrict freedom of speech under the guise of protecting state security.

Despite these difficulties, there is a small but vibrant civil reporter’s community in the island. Bloggers and reporters in Cuba risk their freedom everyday sending their news abroad and distributing in Cuba the newsletters in USB or CD-rom copies, which they estimate reaches hundreds of citizens. Many independent journalists make daily or weekly trips to foreign embassies to use free Internet and do their jobs, but this practice puts them under further government scrutiny.
