Trump Policy Could Cut Remittances To A Million Cuban Families

Does the Cuban Military Really Control Sixty Percent of the Economy ?

Anatomy of a Fake Fact

President Donald Trump’s decision to prohibit U.S. transactions with Cuban enterprises controlled by the military has thrown a spotlight on the role of the armed forces in Cuba’s economy.

Post by @CubanWindow From the Original post How Will Trump’s New Policies Affect Cuba’s Economy ?Nathaniel Parish Flannery 

Donald Trump has decided to crack down on Cuba. He told a small crowd in Miami, “We will not lift sanctions on the Cuban regime until all political prisoners are freed, freedoms of assembly and expression are respected, all political parties are legalized, and free and internationally supervised elections are scheduled.” Trump’s decision to roll back some of Barack Obama’s Cuba policy’s is a break from the tone he’s taken when dealing with Russia, Saudi Arabia, the Philippines, and other countries with problematic records on human rights.

Run by Collin Laverty, a leading expert on Cuba and U.S.-Cuba relations, Cuba Educational Travel organizes educational exchange programs and people-to-people travel for U.S. citizens and residents to Cuba. We believe our two countries have much to learn from each other and meaningful exchanges that foster dialogue can be highly beneficial to strengthening the artistic, environmental, medical, scientific, and social science communities in the U.S. and Cuba. Most importantly, increased travel and people-to-people contact will strengthen ties between ordinary Americans and – Cubans. http://www.cubaeducationaltravel.com/about.html

Post by @CubanWindow from the original – Soy un mambí incómodo, irredento / actor Luis Alberto García • Cuba

I am an uncomfortable “mambí”. Insurgent.
