Cuban dissident blogger Yoani Sanchez will speak in April at the Miami-Dade College Freedom Tower, according to a release from the school.
A blogger who has been a harsh critic of the Castro regime in Cuba left the island on Sunday.
Just hours after Cuba’s best-known blogger was arrested, Yoani Sanchez was released. The Cuban government’s goal? Stop Sanchez from causing “a media show to harm the proper conduct” of the trial involving Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya.
A Spanish man held in Cuba went on trial Friday in connection with a car crash in which prominent dissident Oswaldo Paya was killed, and several government opponents, including dissident Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez, were detained in the eastern city where the proceedings were taking place.
Social media giant Twitter was buzzing with rumors that former Cuban leader Fidel Castro is dead, or very close to it.
