Cuba’s decree forbids spreading content that attacks the state

Cuba’s government on Tuesday spelt out its laws against using social media or the internet to stir up protests or insult the state — and offered people a form to report offenders.

  • A decree signed by Communications Minister Mayra Arevich was meant to “prevent, detect and respond opportunely to a possible enemy, criminal and harmful activities that could occur in cyberspace.”
  • It did not specify penalties, which are to be set in legislation later.
  • The government accused outside groups and the U.S. government of using social media to cause trouble, and arrested numerous people — officials have not given numbers — as well as limiting access to the internet and temporarily cutting off access to cellphone data plans.
