    Digicel said it had ‘always conducted its business in Haiti consistent with all applicable laws and regulations’.

    Digicel, the Caribbean telecoms company owned by Denis O’Brien, has become embroiled in a $1.5 billion US lawsuit over allegations it is a “co-conspirator” in a “ruse” to divert cash that is meant to fund education in Haiti, but is instead allegedly spent corruptly.

    Afro-Mexicans have been in the North American country since the 16th century but are now getting respect from the Mexican government which just created the Instituto Nacional de los Pueblos Indígenas – National Institute of Indigenous Peoples – to recognize the rights of indigenous groups.

    if its GOOD for Cuba its gonna be GOOD for the rest of the Caribbean especially the oil thing. Lets just hope the USA doesnt sabotage shyt. Because I think @ZoeGod said they threatened Cuba last time they wanted to drill for oil.

    They did. New constitution imposes term limits on the president and creates a prime minister too so the US cant use the dictatorship excuse anymore. Not much differencr between a one party system and a two party system imo

    Good. They should have a political party similar the one in China. However, I know China wants to make Xi Jinping president for life. But yea, this will KILL the dictator talking points. But what I also like is that Cuba will open up its markets which is needed for growing economically. Especially since the USA been waging economic war in you guys.

    NICE!
