Cuban journalist: Internet costs "abusive"

An independent journalist named Ruben Carty Lowe sent me a letter complaining about the human rights situation in Cuba. He urged activists outside the island to step up their support for democracy advocates. And he criticized high Internet costs.
Carty said Internet rates at hotels in Cuba range from six to 10 convertible pesos, roughly $6 to $10 U.S. He called those prices "abusive," saying:
...these prices are only for tourists who have access to the hotels...We request for humanitarian aid, technical assistance and technological resources to carry on our work.
Carty attached several photos to his email, including the two that I am posting here.
