Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

Update on forced Cuba exodus
The following message was included in an e-mail Rachel Eisenstat sent in her last mass e-mail. Apparently Keith G-M did some follow up research as to why the group had to leave cuba and summarized it into these following graphs.

from Keith:

You might also be interested in the following information from a listserv for
those interested in the academic administration of international education
programs. Apparently all 300 of the academic institutions granted licenses by
the State Department for study in Cuba will be affected by the Bush
AdministrationĀ“s recent actions. Virtually no short-term programs will be
allowed; license holders will only be allowed to enroll full-time students;
students must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program at the licensed
instituion; and so on.

The State Department has labeled all short-term, faculty-led programs in Cuba
a form of "disguised tourism." The Administration has chosen to define what
constitutes legitimate study abroad programs. And, most alarming, officials
are delving into defining curriculum, allowing short-term educational programs
in Cuba only if they are designed to promote "regime change" on the island.

You may find this as amazing as we did. ItĀ“s no wonder the Cuban government
is jumpy about both church groups and religious groups coming to Cuba. The
U.S. has essentially damned any of these cross-cultural programs, or material-
aid and mediation programs, or immersion programs like ours, by saying these
groups will be the patsies of the U.S. government, or by denying them access
to Cuba at all.
