Washington, February 4 (RHC)-- The Alianza Martiana, which brings together organizations of Cuban immigrants in Miami, in the US State of Florida,  called on Tuesday for a caravan of cars on February 8 to demand the right to travel to the island without restrictions.

On other occasions, dozens of members of this coalition developed similar initiatives as a way to reject the economic, commercial, and financial blockade imposed by Washington on the largest of the Antilles almost 60 years ago.

"Demand with others your rights to be able to travel to Cuba without restrictions, and to relate with and help your family in Cuba also without restrictions', the entity underlined in a note.

It specified that the confirmed participants of this event would begin to meet at 11:00, local time, on 12th Street between 95th and 97th Avenues in the southwestern part of the city.

On January 11 and later occasions, the Alianza Martiana condemned the suspension of public charter flights to destinations on the island, except to Havana, starting on March 10.

For the coalition, this measure, announced on January 10 in a communiqué by U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, based on a request he made to the Department of Transportation, is criminal.

According to Pompeo, Washington will also impose limits on the number of such flights that can arrive at the José Martí International Airport in the Cuban capital.
