Odds and ends

  • El Pais reports on an increase in the number of Spaniards living outside Spain last year – a jump of 128,655, or 8.2 percent. A large part of this number is explained by foreign nationals acquiring Spanish nationality under the generous Ley de Memoria – in 2010, 23,864 in Argentina and 22,795 in Cuba.

  • El Nuevo Herald: The “The Streets Belong to the People” campaign (in Cuba) of the Orlando Zapata Tamayo National Front for Civic Resistance and Civil Disobedience is announced in a Miami press conference.

  • The Economist on a scandal at Habanos S.A. that has landed eleven in jail on charges of graft.

  • The New York Times on the musical legacy of the late Chico O’Farrill, living through his son and grandsons.
