Miami: Members of the Cuban-American community and friends in solidarity with Cuba, residents in this city, carried out this Sunday a new caravan against the United States’ blockade of the island and for building bridges of love between both nations, Cubadebate publishes.
With cheers to the ‘Bridges of Love’ and the ‘Cuban Family’, as well as exclamations of Down with the blockade! The attendees ratified that they will continue to exert pressure until the government of President Joe Biden fulfills its promise of policy change towards Cuba.
Moments before, in front of the monument that remembers the national hero of Haiti, Toussaint-Louverture, in that city, the participants said that they also dedicated the day to the Haitian people, who suffered a devastating earthquake on August 14 and days later the impact of the tropical storm Grace.
Car and bicycle caravans took place in recent times in addition to Miami in the cities of New York, Los Angeles and Seattle, among others.
Last year the members of the Puentes de Amor solidarity project organized a similar initiative from Seattle to Washington DC.
Actions against the illegal and unilateral US siege of the Greater Antilles are growing here and especially now in view of Biden’s breach of his electoral promise.
In almost eight months as president, the Democrat maintains in force the 243 measures adopted by his predecessor, Donald Trump, which tightened the economic, commercial and financial blockade of almost six decades, aggravated by the scourge of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The blockade received, once again, the majority rejection of the international community on June 23 at the UN General Assembly, when 184 of the 192 member countries voted for its elimination and the United States was once again isolated along with its inseparable ally Israel.
