Havana, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) The economic, commercial and financial blockade the United States imposed on Cuba for nearly 50 years was termed unfair by members of the 22nd US-Cuba Friendship Caravan.
Caravaneer Sandro Gomez of Californis told Prensa Latina that the members of this group repudiate this anti-Cuba White House policy. “Such unjustice makes me feel ashamed and sorry for learning that the United States neither helps its own people nor the rest of the world,” stressed Gomez.
Amid shortages and hardships, Cuba has a big heart and wishes to help the needy, that is why it sends medical brigades to every corner of the world. We are here, he added, to see how we can help bring down The US blockade.
I believe another world is possible and that I’m in that new world in visiting the largest of the Caribbean Islands, said Gomez after attending a debate on Cuba-US relations at the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP) in Havana.
The 22nd US-Cuba Friendship Caravan arrived on July 22nd in Havana from Mexico after touring 130 US and Canadian cities.
Its more than 100 members, along with the Pastors for Peace, inspired in the ideals of its eternal leader and founder, the late Rev. Lucius Walker, are once again challenging Washington’s economic, commercial and financial blockade.
