No speech like free speech...2
I have just learned that among the Cuban academics to have been denied visas to attend the LASA conference (see post below) are Professor Carlos Alzugaray (pictured) and Dr. Rafael Hernandez, both of whom have spent considerable time in the United States. They were both guests recently in the UK where they contributed to two conferences. Another Cuban denied a visa is Dra. Milagros Martinez who, along with Professor Alzugaray, serves on the LASA Cuba Section board. The denial of their visas will be seen as a deliberate provocation.
