Email received from The Cuban Nation (La Nación Cubana) and published with permission



From its creation in 1999 The Cuban Nation has undergone attacks in its printed editions, In Internet and against the freedom of expression in general of its personnel and collaborators. This means personal attacks, economic terrorism with threats to our advertisers and sponsors by the simple fact that our existence is annoying to those who in the United States assume the right to control the information on Cuba. 

Our printed tabloid newsletter is published after a campaign that began to kidnap editions at the printing company; it continued with aggressions to the distributors and finished with calls in the Miami Hispanic radio to destroy it in the commercial and social organizations of the Hispanic communities where it was distributed.

Later, after that economic terrorism did not intimidated us, there began a campaign against our advertisers and sponsors, which one by one were convinced that it was not good for business to support a publication like ours, which bothered the clients in many travel agencies to Cuba and that was better to destine those funds to the support radio programs controlled by certain special interest groups of Miami. 

That forced us to interrupt the publication of the tabloid and begin the bulletins in Internet that have today more than 14.000 daily receivers in 89 countries. 

These are mailed fulfilling the regulations on Spam or undesirable email and retiring of the listings the people who do not wish to receive this type of information, which add at this moment more than 400. 

But the campaigns continue: newspapers like the Miami Herald, the magazine Forbes, channel 7 of television of Miami and the Legislature of Florida, among others, block the access to our newspaper in their servers, in a way that nobody of its personnel can have access. In Cuba the tourism company Gaviota, among others also established that type of limitation to our e-mails. 

Now another level of censorship against The Cuban Nation has begun.  Register.com company, where the name of http://www.thecubannation.com is registered has disconnected ours and the electronic directions of our pages, according to them in response to anonymous complaints on the content of our information. 

Evidently the constitution of the United States and the laws to protect freedom of information do not apply when it is related to Cuba. 

Something we promise to our readers and friends: while we have left a life breath, The Cuban Nation will continue in the air, in spite of hucksters, salesmen of influences, corrupt and mercenaries that populate our community and grow with the other people’s sweat. Remember: an idea at heart of a cave can more than an army of the crooked.

Desde su creación en 1999 La Nación Cubana ha sufrido ataques en sus ediciones impresas, de Internet y contra la libertad de expresión en general de su personal y colaboradores. Esto es ataques personales, terrorismo económico con amenazas a nuestros anunciantes y patrocinadores por el simple hecho de que nuestra existencia molesta a quienes en los Estados Unidos se arrogan el derecho a controlar la información sobre Cuba.

Nuestro tabloide impreso dejó de editarse luego de una campaña que comenzó por secuestrar las ediciones en la propia imprenta, continuó con agresiones a los repartidores y terminó con llamados en la radio en español de Miami a destruir los ejemplares en los comercios y organizaciones sociales de las comunidades hispanas donde se distribuía.

Más tarde, luego de que el terrorismo económico no nos amedrentó, comenzó la campaña contra nuestros anunciantes y patrocinadores, los cuales uno a uno fueron convencidos de que no era negocio apoyar a una publicación como la nuestra, la cual molestaba a los clientes en muchos negocios relacionados con viajes a Cuba y que era mejor destinar esos fondos al apoyo a programas radiales controlados por determinados grupos de Miami.

Ello conllevó a interrumpir la publicación del tabloide y comenzar los boletines en Internet que tienen hoy más de 14,000 receptores diarios en 89 países.

Estos se hacen cumpliendo con las regulaciones sobre spam ó e-mail indeseable y retirando de los listados a las personas que plantean no desean recibir este tipo de información, las cuales suman en este momento más de 400.

Pero las campañas continúan: periódicos como El Miami Herald, la revista Forbes, el canal 7 de televisión de Miami y la Legislatura de la Florida, entre otros, bloquean el acceso a nuestro periódico en sus servidores, de forma de que nadie de su personal pueda tener acceso. En Cuba la compañía de turismo Gaviota, entre otros también estableció ese tipo de limitación a sus e-mails.

Ahora ha comenzado otro nivel de censura contra La Nación Cubana. La compañía Register.com, donde está registrado el nombre de http://www.lanacioncubana.com ha desconectado nuestros e-mails y las direcciones electrónicas de nuestra página, según ellos por quejas anónimas sobre el contenido de nuestra información.

Evidentemente la constitución norteamericana y las leyes sobre libertad de información no aplican cuando se trata de Cuba.

Una cosa si prometemos a nuestros lectores y amigos: mientras nos quede un aliento de vida, La Nación Cubana continuará en el aire, mal que le pese a los mercachifles, vendedores de influencias, corruptos y mercenarios que pueblan nuestra comunidad y medran con el sudor ajeno. Recuerden señores: una idea en el fondo de una cueva puede más que un ejército de corruptos.

    We have posted this email as a service to The Cuban Nation and will give them time to sort out the issues. They could have hit a ceiling with an email limit at Register.com or other technical issue and/or an orchestrated effort to get their site taken down.

    We welcome them to post here in order to update their readers.
