Exile and internal exile in Latin America, n. 10/2020

Editors: Giovanna Campani, Martha Canfield, Judy Kreith, Carmelo Spadola

The issue will be divided into two parts:

All travellers had official visas or permits that allegedly guaranteed them entry to the Caribbean nation. But the story proved insensitive, when the then Cuban president Federico Laredo Bru invalidated those authorisations by decree and did not allow the boat to enter the Havana port.
