    Yesterday | Babalu Blog

    American Airlines has signed a deal with the apartheid Castro regime's travel agency, Havanatur, to sell airline seats from its locations in Cuba. The availability of airline tickets on American will do little to serve the Cuban people who on average make $20-$30 a month and could never afford a plane ticket that sells for as much as a year's worth of salary.

"Cuba yes! blockade no!" chanted the participants in Spanish at the "Jailed for What?" campaign in a rhythmic voice with hands pounding the desks and feet stamping on the floor while U.S. envoy to the UN Economic and Social Council Kelley Currie, Secretary-General of the Organization of American States Luis Almagro and others were speaking.

A US event meant to highlight the plight of Cuba's political prisoners was drowned out by the noise of Cuban diplomats banging on tables and voices screaming, "Cuba yes, blockade no" across a large conference room, a reference to the US economic embargo against the island nation.

    Tuesday Oct 16 | The Las Vegas Sun

    About 20 Cuban diplomats and supporters disrupted a U.N. meeting called Tuesday by the United States to spotlight the island nation's political prisoners, loudly banging on tables and shouting in Spanish, "Cuba, yes! U.S. blockade, no!" It was impossible to hear U.S. Deputy Ambassador Kelley Currie, senior Trump administration officials or the secretary-general of the Organization of American States above the noise in the U.N. Economic and Social Council chamber that continued for more than 45 minutes. Toward the end of the meeting, U.N. security officials ordered out more than a dozen pro-Cubans in the balcony who had joined in the shouting.

    Tuesday Oct 16 | The New York Times

    Natan Wekselbaum, who, after being slighted as a struggling English speaker by two Manhattan retailers, opened his own tiny hardware store and transformed it into an Upper East Side household goods emporium congruously named Gracious Home , died on Oct. 3 at his home in Manhattan. He was 83. Mr. Wekselbaum and his brother, David Weck, who had both recently immigrated from Cuba, were the only employees of the store when it opened in 1963 in a cramped 2,000-square-foot space.

  19. New report shows significant drop in agreed 20,000 annual immigrant visas for CubansRead the original story w/Photo

    Tuesday Oct 16 | The Miami Herald

    With visa-issuing operations at the U.S. Embassy in Havana at a virtual standstill, the United States is expected to fall far short of the minimum of 20,000 annual immigrant visas for Cubans that is the target in the U.S.-Cuba migration accords. A semiannual report that the State Department is required to submit to Congress shows that through the end of July, only 3,195 visas were issued, making it highly unlikely when final visa numbers are tallied for the last two months of the fiscal year that the United States will come anywhere near the 20,000-visa target for Cuban migrants who don't have immediate family members in the United States.
