According to the activist, authorities presented a search warrant and said they took the belongings ``to look for counterrevolutionary literature.'' They said they believed there were documents connected to U.S. institutions, he said.

Collaborators said the magazine was necessary to broaden the spectrum of opinions presented in Cuba's state-run media.

The first printed edition of ``Consensus'' contained an interview with dissident writer Raul Rivero - recently released from prison - and articles about the death penalty and the situation of women in Cuba.
