<nettime> Choking Fidel and Us



The Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control has issued for
public comment new restrictions on travel to Cuba with increased penalties
for violations. The proclaimed intent is to harm Cuba's economy by
reducing income from tourism and educational travel.

It would be helpful if non-US nations increased promotional efforts for
tourism and educational travel to Cuba. All persons might wish to comment
on the proposed nastier interference in Cuban sovereignty.

This action has come in response to Bush's Cuba study commission,
instituted to recommend US actions to undermine the Cuban government. The
committee issued its report in early May:

Lebbius Woods, an architect and Cooper Union professor, who defied Cuba
travel restrictions is being hounded by Treasury for payment of a $75,000
fine, with salary and other income at threat from the obsessed free
marketers. Lebbius is showing recent work in his new book, The Storm and
The Fall, on June 26 at the Center for Architecture, 536 La Guardia Place,
NYC, 6:30-8:30PM, with party at 9:00 PM the same day, at his studio 80
Nassau Street, in downtown Manhattan.

For the party, RSVP to 212-227-5079.
