“Help us spread the word that it is time to stop punishing the Cuban people for making a revolution. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, it is rather important than ever to stop stifling the Cuban people,” organizers said.

The caravans, to take place in many US cities and worldwide, will reaffirm their calls for the Joe Biden Administration to lift its hostile policy on Cubans and will ask Bridges of Love to be built between the two countries.

Peaceful caravanists will hang up flags and banners depicting allegorical messages, organizers said on social media.

The solidarity caravan event is organized by the Committee of Cuban Friends in Seattle, alongside the Collaboration of Women from the United States and Cuba, Bridges of Love, ANSWER coalition, as well as the Socialism and Liberation and Socialist Workers parties.

Executive Order 3447 signed on February 3, 1962, by then-Democratic President John F. Kennedy gave legal effect to a blockade that began much earlier.

Its most immediate antecedent was the secret memorandum by Lester Mallory, Undersecretary of State under the Dwight Eisenhower administration (1953-1961).

In the April 6, 1960 text, Mr. Mallory advised depriving Cuba “of money and supplies, in order to reduce its financial resources and real wages, cause hunger, despair and overthrow the Cuban Government”, a policy that remains unchanged 60 years later.
