If anyone suggests holding a workshop in a country that is led by a
dicator, like Cuba, or, e.g. Belarussia, I will raise my voice.  This
has nothing to do with political BS, but these are countries that
suppress, torture, and kill, their people.  Their political systems are
contradictory to the spirit of freedom of anything.

Keep in mind that I am Swiss, a country with a long record of direct
democracy.  Cuba could, and in fact should, learn a lot from Switzerland.

I do not want to abuse this mailing list for political statements.  But
a workshop on free software in a dictatorship is just a no-go.
