Washington, October 25 (RHC)-- As it has become tradition, every month since the beginning of the year, the Bridges of Love project called Monday for a new world caravan to end sanctions and the U.S. blockade against Cuba.
In statements to Prensa Latina, the leading promoter of these actions, Cuban-American Carlos Lazo, informed that the date chosen is next Sunday, October 31. On this occasion, they are also encouraged by the remarks of Pope Francis.
A few days ago, he recalled, the Supreme Pontiff asked, please, the powerful and great nations to cease blockades against any country in the world.
The only nation on the planet that has suffered a blockade for more than 60 years is Cuba, and we want to thank the Pope for his solidarity, join his remarks and march for the end of the blockade and for building Bridges of Love, he said.
According to what Lazo announced, he will be in Miami on Sunday to march there. They will leave from the City Hall of that city in the morning, where they will make a brief act for the end of the sanctions that weigh on the Cuban people.
We call on all those who want an end to these sanctions, who want the reestablishment of remittances to Cuba, the reopening of consular services, and the restoration of the family reunification program at the Washington embassy in Havana to join us, he said.
He added that those who want Americans to finally be able to travel freely to the largest of the Antilles and learn about its reality could also join in.
Those who want to build Bridges of Love are invited to participate in this worldwide caravan from anywhere in the world, he said.
Last July, Bridges of Love made a walk of more than 2,000 kilometers from Miami to Washington and met with numerous activists in front of the White House.
There, Lazo delivered a petition backed by more than 27,000 signatures, urging President Joe Biden to lift the blockade and improve relations with Cuba.
