At the Latin American School of Medicine in Jaguey Grande, Pakistani Muslim students protested and went on strike over their living conditions for the second time this year. The newly-formed riot police in full gear and assault rifles with bayonets repressed the protest:
The Pakistani students have been protesting over the inferior education they are receiving from the Cuban government and the lack of hospital facilities at the university. The students feel that the quality of education they are being provided in Cuba is not sufficient for them to be able to pass the exams required to be licensed physicians back home in Pakistan.
So much for the excellent Cuban healthcare.
