Heaven at hand in Havana´s Galiano Street

HAVANA, Oct 31 (ACN) Strange cobwebs have been hanging for a few days on Havana´s Galiano Street, officially Italia Avenue, with the constant question of what they will be.

What seemed to be nothing but wires and careless light bulbs during the day, last night unveiled huge constellations that illuminated the entire road.
Galiano Street then welcomes with a new image the 500th anniversary of the founding of Havana, with a light show donated by the city of Turin to celebrate this anniversary.
The general astonishment occurred minutes after the cannon fire, when only seconds were enough for the yellow, blue and white spotlights to form the starry shapes of the night.
The crowd then had the opportunity to pose in front of Orion's Belt, the Big or the Little Dipper, without the need to reach the sky, and the floodlights were the scene of hundreds of people from Havana and visitors who witnessed this unique event in Cuba.
Havana is dressed up to receive its 500 years and Galiano Street accompanies it with a renewed nocturnal image.

Non-Aligned Movement, the voice of developing nations

HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 22 (ACN) HAVANA, Oct 22 (ACN) Since its founding in 1961, the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), advocated to become a space of political consensus, where the strengthening of peace and international security focuses its work of more than five decades.

With its first summit in Belgrade in the same year, this Movement established a non-hierarchical, rotating and participatory style of administration, which allows its 120 member states to be involved in global decision-making in world politics.
NAM has demonstrated its capacity to adapt and even though the division of the world into two blocs disappeared with the fall of the Soviet Socialist Block, the truth is that this organization plays a key role in confronting poverty and fostering economic development and nuclear disarmament, among other issues.
Thanks to its high number of participants, the Non-Aligned Movement is the second world' largest body after the United Nations (UN).
Besides high-level meetings and other important events, NAM holds its Summit or Conferences of Heads of State or Government every three years, according to geographical rotation.
Cuba, one of the 26 members from Latin America and the Caribbean, will be represented at the 18th Summit, to be held October 25-26 in Baku, Azerbaijan, by Miguel Diaz-Canel, President of the Republic.
