Don’t ya just hate it when the watchers become watched?

Yoani Sanchez — Generation Y blogger from Cuba — scores again.

ETECSA: From Surveillance to Indiscretion

Seems someone released data from ETECSA, the only phone company in the country, that showed who in the country had their phones tapped and the relationship of those people to the government.

And Sanchez’s reaction to the released data:

For once, the detailed inventory they’ve made on every citizen has served for us to know about “them,” to know that those who are listening on the other end of line have names, not just pseudonyms. Now, anyone can call them, send them a message, something as short and direct as a text saying “Enough already!”
