20th Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba will take place in July


Like every year for the past twenty years, the courageous Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan will start their annual trip to Cuba. The genocidal Yankee imperialist embargo against Cuba prevents Americans from sending any article to the Caribbean island.

Every year the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization / Pastors for Peace defies the orders of the American empire, which requires them to obtain a U.S. government license to transport items to Cuba. They defy and break that law every year as an act of civil disobedience and to express their solidarity with the Cuban people. They are harassed every year by U.S. Customs when they cross into Mexico.

The caravan stops at many cities and states in both Canada and the United States. Hundreds of Americans add their donations of goods and money to the Solidarity With Cuba Caravan.

The IFCO/PFP website maintains a list of the cities where the caravan will stop. You will find on the top right page: 1) Caravan Info and Docs. 2) Find events in your state. 3) Map of Route. 4) Caravan Blog.

This year's Caravan will take place from July 3rd to August 3rd.

If you want to express your solidarity with Cuba, but are not able to participate in the Caravan, you can go to Let Cuba Live! website and purchase one of their colorful blue Let Cuba Live Bumper Stickers.
They are only $3.00. I have one in my car, and quite a lot of people honk at me and give me the thumbs up sign.
