HAVANA TIMES – We were surprised on Thursday by the decision of journalist Fernando Ravsberg to close his blog, Cartas desde Cuba, founded in 2007.
Ravsberg had been harassed by the authorities for including articles in his blog at different times that questioned government policies, a sin for the most conservative of the Castro-Diaz Canel government.
For several years we included Ravsberg’s articles in English (translated by us), and in Spanish, on the Havana Times pages, something that was discontinued in February of this year at the request of the Uruguayan journalist, who has been living in Cuba for more than 25 years.
Knowing that he has many journalistic and teaching skills, we are sure that Ravsberg will find other spaces to contribute his knowledge. We wish him the best!
