Oslo Hotel Faces Backlash Over Cuba Ban

Posted on Friday, January 05 at 09:25 by 4Canada
On Friday, the 300,000-member Norwegian Union of Municipal and General Employees announced that it was boycotting all Scandic hotels in Norway, joining a wave of protests that started when the ban on Cuban guest became news on Thursday. “We are already looking for other hotels for planned conferences,” said the union's deputy leader Anne Grethe Skaardal. “For us, it is unacceptable for the U.S. to dictate to the whole world. In addition, we strongly oppose the U.S. boycott of Cuba.” http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20070105.wcuban0105/BNStory/International/home [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on January 8, 2007]
