Again my friend Mari Carmen arsenal of fresh anecdotesshe tells me another story, as unusual as it may seem, is so real that it hurts to tell it. Her nephew came to her house very upset, to say that he had just come from immigration, where he had been notified that he could not be granted the requested permission to leave, because father had been a doctor on an international mission who, three years previously, had deserted.
And, they added, that he would El bucanero homosexual discrimination to be separated from his workplace for at least five years before he could reapply for permission to leave. It appears that this
El bucanero homosexual discrimination of punishment is passed from parent to child by transference. Many people on my planet have been abducted by official propaganda, which goes into the same sack as all the emigration that has occurred, especially sincewhich is classified as of economic origin.
They especially want to justify to others, as economicthe reasons why their children and close relatives have abandoned the country. And they always add the
El bucanero homosexual discrimination tagline El bucanero homosexual discrimination throughout the world many people constantly emigrate for the same reasons.
In addition, they have to submit an inventory of all their belongings, get themselves taken off the ration card, turn in their identity card, and, of course, El bucanero homosexual discrimination permission to leave.
So when someone tells me that Cubans emigrate for economic El bucanero homosexual discrimination are pointing to just one aspect of the phenomenon. In my view, there are at least two reasons that produce this alarming emigration: How weak is a State that sees danger in the words of a student? And using its power forcefully attacks and dictates the immediate expulsion of Henry Constantin from the Superior Art Institute ISA in Havana, brutally abusing his rights and using psychological torture.
In recent days, in the middle of the night, and aware of the cowardice this implies, leaders of the student union FEU took action against Henry to avoid that the rest of the students would be witnesses. Caught in deep sleep, and without giving him a chance to react; manhandled by the dean of students and other manipulated students, and given his refusal to go along as he made it clear that he would not leave the school on his own two feetthey dragged him from his dorm, down the stairs, events only comparable to the hordes of the Nazi SS or the dictators of the past century in southern lanes, and put him in a car and abandoned him far from home and the university.
How disgusted must they be with themselves, those who committed this outrage? This event could be inscribed in the long anthology of horror of the Castro dictatorship.
Comandante who now wastes none of El bucanero homosexual discrimination ink of his Reflections El bucanero homosexual discrimination interceded against the unconstitutional abuse he fathered? None of them were expelled from the university despite armed activities.
Why are the universities for communists, if not even Batista himself refused them to his enemies? How much misery has a Government put together to abuse a young artist, El bucanero homosexual discrimination and talented student, of a physically barely developed adolescent, for the supposed crime of issuing opinions? How then, from different places in the world, have beings been able to defend a system that puts shames us?
In any event, our friend and brother Henry, you will rarely have the opportunity to be more of a hero than now, it is difficult to grow as high as you have done this time. Know that your strength like ours, is multiplied after each unworthy act. I also know that you harbor no hatred, the artist in you will not let you, despite the shock feeling of helplessness. They are deserving of pity, because they fear losing the space that they maintain by the force of injustice, they are aware
El bucanero homosexual discrimination their attitude has no place in modern times.

As I continued along the hallway, they would wave accomplices. At the entrance to my stairway there was, coincidentally, the most robust of all, whom I knew by sight. I picked up my things without any hurry and talked a lot with the boys of the FEU called together to throw me out. I have to stay to collect it.

El bucanero homosexual discrimination FEU, lacking initiative, go after him. Who told you that? Victor gets out with a determined face and the guys behind him. Victor tries one last trick: Victor El bucanero homosexual discrimination out of the car and turns while Danae and Andy are still talking.
The directors of the FEU get in: Rudy at my back, Andy on my left and Danae on my right; Victor next to the driver. The car continues down Fifth Avenue, through the and all along the Malecon, at dawn.

Marches are held each year in the streets of the capital by bringing together several El bucanero homosexual discrimination homosexuals to demand that their rights be recognized. What about the rest of society? What about freedom of expression and association? And the multiparty system?
