dc.description.abstract Critics of the IMF in Trinidad and Tobago are considering compensation for the use of faulty statistics in its dealing with Trinidad in 1985 and 1986. Cuba has confirmed that as of tomorrow it will start pulling its forces out of Angola. The first contingent to leave comprised of 450 of the estimated 50,000 troops. Cuba's Head of AIDS programme, Dr. Rudolfo Rodriguez has refuted claims that AIDS patients are treated like prisoners. A team of medical experts from the United States who visited the special AIDS facility described it as frightening. As countries in the Caribbean and Latin America prepare to celebrate the 500th anniversary of Christopher Columbus' discovery, some organisations are planning to hold alternative activities to highlight the darker side associated with the arrival of Europeans. en_US
