Cuba’s stance on climate change, under discussion currently in Paris, is our lead story this week, and we follow with news of protests against foreign military bases, with attention focused by an international seminar in Guantanamo. New migration talks are under way between Cuba and the US, with support coming from Mexico, Ecuador, Salvador and Colombia over the problem presented by illegal Cuban emigration to the US. But Cuba and the US have agreed to cooperate on environmental matters. Talks with the EU have moved to a second round.

Longstanding ally of Cuba, actor Danny Glover, is back in Cuba, greeting Cuban Five member Gerardo Hernández for the first time since visiting him in a Californian prison, at a time when he also met Fidel, and Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. Oscar-winning US filmstars are coming to this year’s festival of Latin America cinema; the ‘Yo sí puedo’ programme is spreading exponentially; Raúl has met the president of the International Red Cross; ozone treatments get extended coverage and we note that Cuba is supplying more biotechnological products to Vienam.

Finally to sport, to weightlifting, with Cubans excelling at world competitions gathering qualifying points for next year’s Olympic Games in Brazil.
