Regina Coyula, 5 February 2016 — With a low media profile, sidestepping
the incomprehension of establishment colleagues and the suspicions of
the independent press, Periodismo de Barrio has begun its journey.
Meanwhile, journalism-in-praise-of-the-government on one side and
of-criticisms on the other, has appeared in this digital space that in
its almost monographic issues has given us an accurate picture of
Santiago de Cuba four years after Hurricane Sandy to present a
straightforward and effective account of the half-life of those people
who never make the headlines, those we are given to call “average Cubans.”

I would like to talk with Elaine Diaz, the lead on this project and
former professor at the Faculty of Social Communication at the
of Havana, about this experience. We don’t even have to agree
that the excellent articles from her news site not only confirms the
government’s inability to provide a prosperous and sustainable life for
citizens in the name of whom they say — and should — govern, but they
leave them very badly off. I look forward to meeting Elaine; meanwhile I
welcome this new site.
