Article on Cuba’s independent journalism in Global Journalist

If you’re a Global Journalist subscriber (or if you know a newsstand that carries the magazine), look out for a piece by CJT chairman Nicolás A. Jiménez on page 20 of the summer 2010 issue. The article, titled The Cold War Within, is focused on the need for training and capacity building programs for Cuban journalists.

Look for Nicolás A. Jiménez's article on Cuban independent journalism in this issue of Global Journalist.

Global Journalist hasn’t posted the article online, but when it does, we’ll post an update here.

UPDATE: The article is now posted online here.
