Caravans in worldwide wave against U.S. blockade of Cuba Caravans and other actions against the U.S. blockade against Cuba will take place today, Sunday - called by the promoter of the "Bridges of Love Project," Carlos Lazo.

Washington.- At least 22 cities from seven countries - Canada, Mexico, Belgium, Italy, Dominican Republic, and Nicaragua - have confirmed their participation in the initiative. Miami, Las Vegas, Hartford, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Albuquerque, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, Seattle, and the capital Washington, D.C., are some of the cities in the United States that will see demonstrations.

In statements to Prensa Latina, the Cuban-American professor who resides in Seattle ratified that these caravans advocate for bridges of love between the peoples of Cuba and the United States.

Last month, Carlos Lazo traveled to Cuba with a humanitarian cargo and met with activists, religious and political leaders, and people from different communities. During his visit, he was received by Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel. They discussed relations with emigration, the U.S. economic, commercial, and financial blockade, and other issues of interest.

In July, the members of the project led by Lazo carried out a two thousand-kilometer walk from Miami to Washington, DC, where together with activists and friends in solidarity they staged a sit-in in front of the White House demanding the cessation of that hostile policy against Cuba. Lazo delivered to the U.S. government a petition backed by more than 27,000 signatures, urging President Joe Biden to lift the blockade and move towards the normalization of relations.

Bridges of Love systematically carries out caravans in various U.S. cities to call for the lifting of the blockade and the 243 coercive measures that reinforced it, adopted during the administration of Donald Trump and still in force under Biden's administration. (RHC)
