SUBJECT: CUBA AND INTERNET FREEDOM 
 
REF: STATE 89911 
 
Classified By: Political Minister-Counselor David D. Pearce for reasons 
 1.4 (b) and (d). 
 
¶1.  (C) Poloff raised reftel points with MFA Caribbean and 
Central America Office Director Michele Pala on July 9.  He 
also provided detailed background information and urged that 
the GOI look for opportunities to help expand internet access 
for Cuban civil society. 
 
¶2.  (C) Pala said that Italy is aware of the Cuban 
Government's efforts to restrict internet access.  He 
emphasized that Italy's policy toward Cuba includes dialog 
with the political opposition, but that because of the small 
size of the Italian embassy in Havana, offering internet 
access to Cubans there would not be practical.
