Cuba goes after a blogger....

Obviously a very dangerous woman...
A Cuban blogger who has gained international attention for her searing commentary about life on the communist island said she was briefly detained Friday and warned by state security agents about her opposition activity.

Yoani Sanchez, who runs a blog called "Generation Y" and whose writings have appeared in several international publications and Web sites, told The Associated Press that two state agents in civilian clothes stopped her in Havana's Vedado neighborhood as she and several friends made their way to a protest march in central Havana.

The agents ordered her and one of her friends to get into their car and pulled her hair and kicked her when she initially refused, Sanchez said.

"It was very violent," she said.

Once in the car, Sanchez said, the agents told her she had gone too far with her writings, which vividly tells of problems of a country where the government controls nearly all aspects of life. Sanchez said that after issuing their warning, the agents let her and her friend go.

This is exactly why left-wing Canadians like Cuba, Iran etc. Bloggers can be picked up by the police and roughed up or jailed if they criticize government. That's a leftist's dream.
