Yoani Sanchez: A Forbidden Voice Speaks Out

"Moved by sharing this moment with many human rights defenders in the world. Thanks to the organizers of Movies Matter." - Yoani Sanchez, March 23, 2013 at 12:50pm in Amsterdam

Yoani Sanchez is a human rights hero who has exercised her fundamental human rights to inform the world about what is taking place in Cuba. Yoani has also been subjected to both physical violence and short term arbitrary detentions in Cuba over the years.

Today in Amsterdam the Movies that Matter Festival is screening a documentary "Forbidden Voices"that also includes a chapter on Yoani Sanchez's life and unlike on so many other occasions when she was denied the right to travel on this occasion she is present.

Looking forward to the day, hopefully soon, to sit down and exchange views on Cuba and human rights in general.

In the mean time her blog offers a wonderful accounting of her travels inside and outside of Cuba.
