Cuba Educational Travel: People 2 People experience

Cuba People to people

Post by @CubanWindow From the Original  By Danny King / June 27, 2017 – Cuba Educational Travel’s Collin Laverty / Travel Weekly

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

Collin Laverty is the president of Cuba Educational Travel, which specializes in arranging exchange programs and people-to-people travel for Americans to Cuba. Laverty has visited the island more than 100 times, and his company has taken more than 12,000 travelers to Cuba since 2013. Laverty spoke with senior editor Danny King.

Post by @CubanWindow from the Original Cuban bloggers vs. Trump

 

Declaration

Cuba also exists in the blogosphere.

It is the daily testimony and free thought of a nation and a people in all its rich culture of resistance and life.

Precisely because of that patriotism that identifies us as a community, we denounce the recent statements by the President of the United States,  so offensive and insulting toward our people.

Trump brakes, backs off, takes off in history, assumes the worst of positions and was surrounded by subjects with a comprehensive criminal record

The Cuban bloggers:

  • We follow and encourage the rapprochement between the two nations, despite their differences, 
  • we reject the return to the offensive discourse and the politics of the caverns, so often defeated
  • We reprove all intentions of force against the Island, while disqualifying terrorists and cheating politicians as valid interlocutors for Cubans.

President Trump must know that his mandate does not extend to Cuba and his offenses brought back to the “ice age” serve only to reinforce anti-imperialist sentiment, one more reason to unite as Cubans

The road that we have followed and the qualities of the wheel that cross it are legitimate for the popular genesis that has given it life, without pressure of any kind, forged from the people to whom we owe our roots and the incredible history of this land, Which struggles day by day for a better society and for a better world.

Those who wish to join this statement can do so through the various platforms of Social Networks where it has been published or, in their personal pages.

Post By @CubanWindow
