New caravan in the US to call for the end of the blockade on Cuba

Washington, Apr 20 (Prensa Latina) The Bridges of Love solidarity project called for a new caravan in the United States and other cities around the world to ask for the end of the blockade against Cuba next Sunday, April 24.

Cuban-American professor Carlos Lazo, leader of the initiative, shared on his Facebook account the call to the meeting that, like every month, will require the US government to lift the sanctions imposed to suffocate the island’s economy and affect Cuban families.

According to the program, the caravan next Sunday in the southern city of Miami will start at 18 Street & Biscayne Blv and then in cars they will travel through nearby avenues with the message of rejection of the unilateral coercive measures applied by Washington.

During the conference, they will advocate for the elimination of obstacles to the sending of remittances and family reunification, among other objectives.

Cubans and American friends of Cuba will once again urge President Joe Biden to fulfill his campaign promise to reverse the policy of his predecessor, Donald Trump (2017-2021), regarding the largest of the Antilles.

The Republican during his mandate adopted 243 restrictive measures against the Caribbean nation that the current head of the White House maintains in force, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic and with a campaign to try to subvert the internal order on the Island, according to the denounce from Havana.

That behavior, in the opinion of activists, is not a surprise, because in the United States the policy towards Cuba in many aspects is directed by an influential sector of the most conservative Cuban-Americans in Miami.
