Raising the U.S. embargo on Cuba will make no difference, top dissident blogger Yoani Sanchez said during her trip to Miami, because the island “lives off of economic subsidies from Venezuela.”

Sanchez is a controversial blogger who runs the Generation Y blog through a server in Spain and also manages multiple Twitter accounts to get the word out about living in communist Cuba to the rest of the world. She is currently on a nearly three-month world tour after being barred from leaving the island for 10 years.The writer stopped Monday at downtown Miami’s iconic Freedom Tower, where many Cubans who came to Miami made their first stop after escaping Castro’s dictatorship. She spoke at a talk hosted by Miami Dade College.
