President Mohamed Siad Barre

At the present time, as such, there is virtually no state of Somalia. No single government, no single currency, no central authority. Somalia – a warning to the world the consequences of unmanaged 'parade sovereignties. " Here are some of the independent entities is modern Somalia: Dzhubalend (far south), Puntland (northeast), Comaliyskaya republic (south), Somaliland (northwest), Somalia, Central States (center) Front resistance Rahanen (southwest) Galmudug (center) Union of Islamic Courts Alliance warlords of Somalia gained independence in 1960, when the former British and Italian Somaliland Somalia united in one state. In 1969 a military coup took power Mohamed Siad Barre, who announced a policy of building socialism with Islamic characteristics.

In 1970-77 years Somalia has received substantial Soviet military and economic aid, the Soviet navy has at its disposal a base in Berbera. In 1977, Somalia fell unexpectedly on the second Soviet ally in the region, the Horn of Africa – Ethiopia. They decided to take advantage of difficulties neighbor, a policy of creating the Great Somalia, and having the purpose to deprive the Ogaden region, Ethiopia captured in the early twentieth century and inhabited by the Somali tribes. USSR in the choice between the two allies, chose Ethiopia. In result of the war the Ethiopian army, under the supervision of Soviet advisers, using Soviet arms supplies, and the Cuban volunteers, defeated the aggressor. The period after the war was marked by Ogadenskoy general crisis in economic and political spheres. In the 80s in the north of the country began a war rebel, and as a result of the continuing crisis in 1991, President Mohamed Siad Barre was overthrown and the country descended into chaos.

Cuba Travel

The communist regime of Fidel Castro causes that Cuba is a country very different from which we know the European. One is a political regime based on the Comunism, in the disappearance of the private property; a regime in which everybody works for the state, has the covered basic needs, but no money nor whim. This situation causes that the Cubans constantly try to remove money from the tourists, reason why is necessary to consider several recommendations before visiting Cuba. From year 2004, no longer it is recommended to take dollars to Cuba, since it penalizes them to Fidel Castro with a 10% of surcharge in the change. The best thing is to take Euros and to change them in a bank from the country to the call convertible weight or CUC (popularly called chavito). The convertible weight is the local currency, has the same value that a dollar and can be changed of Euros to CUC without no type of penalty. In addition in Cuba the Cubano Peso exists, that only can use the Cubans. Its S-value very low.

The Cubans often try to give to the tourists the change in weights Cuban, eye with this. The convertible weights have their abbreviations (CUC) enrolled in tickets and currencies. In the chapter of the transport, the majority of tourists moves in taxi, because the public transport of the island is only for the Cubans, besides being very slow and unpredictable. We recommend that always the price is agreed to before starting, but considering that the normal tariff is very low (1 CUC by kilmetro at the most). They think that the pay paid by the state of a Cuban taxi driver does not surpass the 3 or 4 dollars to the month.

Cuba is a country where until most basic as a soap tablet is very difficult to find. We recommend to take to all the essential equipment of cleanliness and a small medicine kit (it is difficult to find equipment like plasters or aspirins). Also we recommended to take adpatador of current because this is of 110 volts (instead of the 220 that there are in Spain) and the plugs are different. The moving body because in Havana it works perfectly, although in the provinces of Cuba can be taken not as much. As far as the purchases, it is recommended that never it buys in the street pure, rum or coffee, because usually is a fraud. Although it is prohibited by the government, it will see Cuban by all the sides offering to him these articles, as well as to be its local guide, or to transfer them to the famous palates (particular houses that work like restaurants). Although it is recommended to go to some palate, it looks for one legal one, that there are many, and is never praised/poured off by which they offer to him in the street, because it is very probable that they timen to him. IF it wishes to obtain more data on Cuba, in our guide to travel to Cuba will be able to find interest information on these subjects, as well as on what visiting in Cuba or what to visit in Havana.

The Congress

In Buarque (2009), one affirms that the abandonment to the education, even so concentrated in the poor classrooms, is generating a society that bothers to all, an inefficiency that makes it difficult the global functioning of the economy and the society. The maintenance of the order and the protection of the patrimony and the personal security cost to rich and the almost-rich ones of Brazil to almost keep a militarized force of the size of the proper Army, under the form of private monitoring. How much the democracy in Brazil, the same author affirms that: The Brazilian democracy did not advance because it did not obtain to give the basic step to leave the corporative organization for a social and national organization. The Congress has all freedom, but its members of the house of representatives almost always had been elect and represent corporative groups, losing the capacity to in general see, to understand and to represent interests of society e, especially, of the kept out of society layers. Unions, patronal members of labor party, had passed to be seen as democratization elements, when they represent only the part integrated in modernity and take almost always decisions against the interests of the great masses.

The biggest example, however, of the democratization emperrada in the corporativizao is in ' ' democracia' ' of the social medias, that was capable to eliminate the censorship, to allow the free debate, but it kept radios and televisions subordinated to the interests of the profit or the manipulation of opinion on the part of its proprietors, whom, it exempts of the state censorship, exert its proper you censure. Directly to censure, to manipulate, or indirectly so that the medias are only elements of generation of profits, and not of participation, education and cultural promotion. A democratization strategy will not function that does not eliminate the corporativizao of the society and that it does not put the free medias Been it and also it control for part of its proprietors.
