Ryan Amado's curator insight, December 11, 2013 3:21 AM

This is sad news for an area that is trying to persuede the world it deserves to be independent. Unfortunately,  they still have to rely on the Spanish government to help their economy, something that does not help their case.  While other countries do take money from other powers, one that is trying to establish itself might want to have a more optimistic outlook on it's economy before it tries to go off on it's own.

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 3, 2014 11:28 AM

This area seems to want it both ways.  To be independent from Spain, but also dependent economically on Spain.  This region should sort out its priorities and decided if independents is worth it and if so then they should not be asking Spain for help.  It’s like a twenty-something person that moves out of their parents’ house and then comes back again and again with their hand out.  Catalonia seems to be facing this same issue.

Hector Alonzo's curator insight, October 30, 2014 9:00 PM

Catalonia, an independent region wants Spain to give them 9 billion euros in order to help them stay out of debt, but also want to keep themselves independent of Spain. The most interesting aspect of this article is how the region of Catalonia wants to be independent, but still seek help from the very place it wants to be independent from.

Cuba Lifts Exit Visa Requirements, Raising Possibility of Exodus to Latin America

Cuba Lifts Exit Visa Requirements, Raising Possibility of Exodus to Latin America | Hispanic News | Scoop.it

Via Miami New Times:

 

This morning, the Cuban government made its biggest immigration policy change in five decades by scrapping its longstanding rule requiring exit visa for Cubans traveling abroad. Now, Cubans with passports can travel anywhere in the world -- including the U.S., apparently -- as long as the country of destination issues them a visa.

 

The change could make a massive difference in the lives of the Cuban people, not to mention U.S.-Cuba relations. Could Miami soon see a brand new influx of Cubans? Maybe.

 

The changes, which eliminate the onerous and expensive exit permits that have long kept most Cubans from traveling, were announced on the website of Cuban government mouthpiece Granma. They will go into effect on January 14, 2013.

 

Some restrictions on travel outside the island will remain. First, Cubans will need a passport -- which is far from guaranteed in a country of endless bureaucracy and arbitrary detentions.

 

Second, Cubans will need a visa from the country they intend to visit. Despite its longstanding "wet foot, dry foot" policy that allows Cubans who make it to U.S. land to stay, the United States currently issues only 20,000 visas to Cubans every year...
