CELECIA PEREZ, Cosette. Online Independent Journalism in Cuba: Broadening the Public Space from a Contentious Dimension. Comun. soc [online]. 2020, vol.17, e7644.  Epub Aug 30, 2021. ISSN 0188-252X.

The context in which the online independent Cuban journalism operates, places it in a vulnerable situation, while in its undertaking, in an open defiance of state control over what is public, broadens and pluralizes that sector on the island. This article examines, from the combination of an analytical model with empirical analysis, how the strategies and demands of independent Cuban journalism in the face of the government -and the way in which it is assumed by power itself- allow it to be connected with forms of contentious action.

Keywords : Independent journalism; contentious action; Cuba; public space.
