CAR CARAVAN AND RALLY IN SOLIDARITY WITH CUBAN-AMERICANS WHO OPPOSE US ECONOMIC AND TRAVEL SANCTIONS AGAINST CUBA
The New York-New Jersey Cuba Sí Coalition, representing dozens of organizations and activists, will hold its 4th Car Caravan to demand the US government lift all its economic and political sanctions against the people and government of Cuba.
Washington’s aggression against Cuba is particularly criminal in face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cuba has given the world a shining example of countering the pandemic on the island and offering medical solidarity worldwide through the Henry Reeve volunteer medical brigades. This contrasts with the social disaster and for-profit health care facing millions in the US.
These caravans in cities around the country, initiated by Cuban-Americans in South Florida, demand an end to the economic, trade, and banking sanctions causing great economic hardship in Cuba, and to US attacks on the right to travel and family visits for residents of both countries.
For the past four years, the Trump administration ratcheted up its anti-Cuba sanctions. It intensified the six decades of economic and political war Washington has waged against Cuba since the 1959 revolution. Among other things, these attacks pushed back the Obama administration’s measures to re-establish diplomatic relations, loosen US restrictions on travel and family remittances, and other steps.
Lift all US economic and travel sanctions against Cuba!
Stop US attacks on Cuban medical volunteers working around the world!
For US-Cuba medical collaboration to fight the COVID-19 pandemic!
