Reflections: A mirror in the web from Cuba

5-Reflejos

Post By @CubanWindow

Another goal scored against those who continue to draw the beautiful island as a missing point on the map of the social digital dynamics.

Reflejos (Reflections) is a platform created under the .cu domain (cubava.cu), from 100 x 100 Cuban servers that users can access freely and at no cost from the Youth Computer Club or other device and in which they have a space to share opinions, interests and needs in text format, images and videos, far from the censorship that other platforms apply to the bloggers who try to share their truth from the island, the truth that the big media hide us, which has no echo in the networks.

It is a tool designed and programmed by the Clubs themselves based on the content management made available to Cuban Internet users.

You can search for real cubans blogs from A to Z …. HERE

Recommend: Arte Comic – Magazine and digital platform dedicated to promote the comic as an art, its development in Cuba and other areas of the planet, as well as the JORNADAS ARTECĂ“MIC event, the only convention dedicated to the ninth art on the island.

And there we go … to do what we know best ….

We have read some excellent articles now that North Korea is in sight:
