The 30 minute video highlights nine independent Cuban bloggers, each of whom narrates a bit of the story behind how and why they began blogging. Each blogger also gives their name, the name of thier blog, when the blog was launched and a bit of its subject matter, as well as their original profession or educational background.
Interestingly, nearly all of the bloggers now exercise a profession different from what they were educated to do. Moreover, they discuss how, over time, they have been transformed (by accident or design) from independent bloggers into cyber-activists.
The bloggers highlighted in the video are:
Claudia Caudelo de Nevi: Octavo Cerco (October, 2008).
Ciro Diaz: El Auditorio Imbecil (April, 2009).
Lia Villares: Hechizamiento/Habanemia (April, 2008).
Ivan Garcia: Desde La Habana (January, 2009).
Miriam Celaya: Sin EVAsion (January, 2008).
Eugenio Leal: Veritas (February, 2009).
Reinaldo Escobar: Desde Aqui (December, 2007).
And Yoani Sanchez: Generacion Y (April, 2007).
Note: Voces Cubanas also hosts 21 other independent blogs - total of 30 in all. All or nearly all of these blogs are available in English tanslations thanx to the folks at Hemos Oido.
