Tonight in Miami, USA: U.S. Cuba Policy and the Cuban-American


The Center for International Policy 
in collaboration with the Department of Global 
and Sociocultural Studies, 
Florida International University (FIU) 
& the Greater Miami Chapter of the ACLU 

Invite you to a discussion of

U.S. Cuba Policy 
and the Cuban-American

Thursday, October 4, 2012
4:00 - 7:30 p.m.
Tower Theater
1508 S.W. 8th Street
Miami, Florida

Recent U.S. regulations have allowed for unlimited Cuban-American travel and remittances to Cuba and increased "purposeful" travel by other citizens.  In two panels we will explore the effect of this opening in Miami and Cuba and examine how Florida voting influences U.S. Cuba policy and how it is likely to do so in the future.

Rules to blog by:
1. More light than heat; More argument than attack.
2. How to fight fair: If you must attack, fine - but attack others' (or my) arguments, not persons, families, or waistlines.
3. Show me the money - back up your statements with reasons and examples, not innuendo and character assassinations.
4. Be respectful, even (especially) of those with whom you disagree.
5. And the golden rule: Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.
