Google Bans Cuba from Another of its Services
Havana, Cuba, Jun 21.- Google Analytics, a service used by most of Cuba’s Web sites and bloggers, appeared blocked on Tuesday for users in Cuba, who, when trying to access the service, are referred to the Web site of the US Department of Treasury. This authority monitors the fulfilment of sanctions imposed by the US blockade on Cuba.
When attempting to access this page, a message appears, which states, “We’re unable to grant you access to Google Analytics at this time. A connection has been established between your current IP address and a country sanctioned by the USgovernment.”
This measure is yet another on the list of prohibitions of the blockade, because Google had already banned Internet users connected from Cuba from accessing Google Earth, Google Desktop Search, Google Toolbar and Google Code Search, which is “a promoter” of the benefits of free software. (RHC).
