Cuba culture official demoted after NY Times op-ed
Saturday, 6 April 2013
HAVANA (AP) - A leading Cuban cultural official says he has been demoted after publishing an opinion piece in the New York Times that criticized "blatant racism" on the island. Roberto Zurbano is refusing to speculate on whether his demotion from publishing director at the Casa de las Americas cultural institute to a lesser role as an analyst was directly linked to the article. But he says he is angry over his experience with the Times.
