Irish musicians prevented from travelling to Cuba

U.S. government prohibits musicians travel to Cuba the Obama follow the instructions of the George W. Bush? Why the leaders of a country that is valued as a guarantor of freedom in the world, prevent that freedom is exercised by its citizens when it comes to travel to Cuba?

These questions emerge from the feelings of frustration that accompany John McAuliff and his 24 colleagues from the OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) of Treasury Department, a sort of Big Brother pursued by every type of treatment of citizens of their country with the Caribbean island, told that they would issue no licenses for travel to Cuba, where they were to participate in the Cultural Traditions II Celtic Festival, from 15 to 26 April in Havana.

The U.S. government denied a license to travel to Cuba with a group of traditional Irish music that he planned to attend the event organized by the Office of the Historian of the City and the artists who will attend Ireland, Spain, Canada and Cuba. (RC)
