Bloggers from various countries have been invited by the Dutch
government to take part in the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of
the Peace Palace in The Hague. The bloggers spent the first day at RNW
where they prepared a blog on the theme of peace and justice.
Carlos Alberto Pérez Benítez from Cuba, editor of the blog La Chiringa,
arrived three days late after being blocked from leaving his country.
Once he arrived, he, together with the other bloggers, were able to
speak with the Dutch Foreign Minister, Frans Timmermans, in the Peace
Palace, which is home to the International Court of Justice. They spoke
about Timmermans' upcoming visit to Cuba, the changes taking place on
the island, bilateral relations, and bloggers' role in guaranteeing
freedom of expression.
