LA committee supports fight against US blockade on Cuba

Washington, Apr 23 (Prensa Latina) ¨Hands Off Cuba¨ Committee, from Los Angeles, California, on Thursday announced its supports in the world´s car caravans against the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba.

Coming car caravans will take place on April 25, in other US cities such as Miami, New York, Albany, Hartford, Boston, Detroit, Chicago, Minneapolis, Seattle, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Washington.

According to organizers, there will be also actions in Cuba, Canada, Mexico, Belize, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Uruguay, Argentina, Spain, Belgium, Italy, France, Serbia, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Russia and Angola.

In Los Angeles, we demand the end of the US blockade and horrible sanctions that have been harming the Cuban people, Brenda López, coordinator of ¨Hands Off Cuba¨ Committee, said in a statement.

Cuba is a sovereign nation, but Washington attacks it and also its international medical brigades that are currently serving humanitarian aid in many countries to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, she stressed.

López also recalled that the US blockade is overwhelmingly rejected every year at the UN, which has been harming Cuba for nearly 60 years and is considered as the main obstacle to the country´s development.

‘Lift all US travel and economic sanctions on Cuba’ and ‘Stop US attacks on Cuban doctors working around the world,’ the Committee also demanded.
