    Please kindly save your money because it’s a waste of precious time, money and strength. We have finished this course with the Regional Maritime University some months ago and we haven’t got our certificates. Even the attestation letter given to a friend to GMA was not recognized by the GMA. Add it to your depths if you ever did it. We have followed up but still. You don’t do anything about it and we will spread your name in the news fellowed by demonstration.

  10. @Jorge:Si solo dice lo que le gusta al gobierno, no le pasará ningún daño. Pero si intenta dejar claras las críticas, será difícil. Los cubanos han aprendido a callar. No puedo imaginar que te guste todo lo que está pasando en este momento. Escuché que los comentarios positivos sobre el gobierno también pueden generar dinero. ¡Entonces yo también hablaría como tú! A menudo estoy en Cárdenas. Lamentablemente no es posible en este momento. Saludos y todo lo bueno para ti!

  11. And one more thing, Luz Escobar, Claudia Barretto, Camila Acosta, Luis Manuel Otero Alcantara, Maykel Osorbo and some other people from the environment of 27N or Movimiento San Isidro would be very happy if they could go out the door because they are from the police or harassed by state protecting and actively averted from doing so without giving Explanations Not only that, some have even had their telecommunications blocked so they can neither make phone calls nor converse via the Internet. It’s like Human Rights Day in Cuba. Cuba officially marked the day and boasted of compliance while keeping rankings of people in virtual detention at home and even arresting some as a precautionary measure in an apparent effort to quell protests. That seems to be the reaping benefits Once again because after all, you want to be able to hold the geriatric congress… um… party conference undisturbed. It would be “completely presumptuous” if the people would also make demands!
