Havana, June 29 (RHC) –- The 26th Pastors for Peace Caravan has crossed from Canada to the United States under the motto “Now's the time to end the blockade.”
During the official launching of the caravan in Washington DC, the director of this initiative, Gail Walker, highlighted the example of resistance of the Cuban people as they faced over 50 years of economic sanctions imposed by consecutive U.S. administrations.
Over one hundred U.S. activists, friends of Cuba, paid homage at the gala to Lucius Walker, founder of the Pastors for Peace movement. They also ratified their commitment to continue his work and legacy in support of Cuba and other just causes.
The Pastors for Peace Caravan began its annual campaign in Canada and will travel through the U.S. to Mexico, picking up donations, such as health care and school supplies, and transport them to Cuba.
