This was wonderful.. but why exactly doesn’t Cuba have Kingdom Halls?

I was wondering the same.. Actually I thought we were banned there or something, but I guess not- looked like everything was out in the open. They just don't have kingdom halls. Weird, right?

Index Note: Some places have bans lifted, the index shows the dates. Cuba has no date of repeal.

 

*** dx86-17 Bans ***

Congo, Republic of (1977-1991): yb04 149, 152-153, 155; w92 11/1 24

Cuba (1974- ): w99 5/15 8; w96 8/1 9; g95 4/8 28; km 10/95 2

Cyprus (northern) (1997-2002): yb04 19-20

 

*** w14 12/15 p. 9 par. 13 ‘Listen and Understand the Meaning’ ***

countries where the Kingdom work is legally restricted. It is hard to know how far the message has reached in such countries, and we are often surprised by the results. Take Cuba, for example. The Kingdom message reached there in 1910, and Brother Russell visited Cuba in 1913. However, the progress was slow at first. What do we now see in Cuba? There are over 96,000 publishers preaching the good news, and 229,726 attended the Memorial in 2013—that is 1 out of every 48 inhabitants of that island nation

 

*** w14 11/15 p. 2 Table of Contents ***

COVER: Kingdom publishers preaching in Santiago de Cuba, the second-largest city on the island known for its music and traditional dances

 

*** yb15 p. 38 par. 1 Dispatches—News From Around the World ***

Even though the Internet is still not widely available in Cuba, it is now possible to connect to it at shops that a telephone company has opened.

 

*** w99 5/15 p. 9 A Historic Visit Makes an Island Rejoice ***

The conventions were held in open-air facilities constructed by the brothers with the permission of the authorities

 

The Bethel Home in Havana was reopened in 1994.  Jehovah’s Witnesses have been granted greater freedom of worship in Cuba, and comments by Cuban authorities lead one to believe that they wish this trend to continue.
