The time in Havana, Cuba
Quito, Ecuador.-Ecuadorian intellectual Juan Paz y Miño said today that U.S. policy towards Cuba is increasingly clumsy, backward, and unfocused, as evidenced in the program to promote subversion by infiltrating young Latin Americans from outside Cuba into the country.
"The U.S. government and its military-industrial apparatus fail to understand that the world has changed and its actions against Cuba are clumsy, backward, and unfocused.
Buenos Aires, Argentina.-For his contribution to Latin American integration and the creation of a more just world, the National University of Lanus in Argentina, will deliver the Title of Doctor Honoris Causa today to the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro.
The decision by the board of directors of that university in Buenos Aires also states that the highly significant distinction will be bestowed upon Fidel Castro for his support for progress in health, education, and the increase of life expectancy in his country. It is also a recognition of Fidel Castro's remarkable solidarity with Argentina in its legitimate claim of sovereignty over the Malvinas (Falkland) Islands.
Madrid, Spain.-The municipality of Etxarri Aranatz, in the Community of Navarra, passed a motion today asking U.S. President Barack Obama to release three Cubans who have remained imprisoned in that country for the better part of two decades.
The Extarri Aranataz decision joins those previously taken by Villa de Ochandiano and Larraungo, in the Basque Country, and Usurbilgo, also in Navarra, which are all demanding the release of the three Cubans.
