After singing the Cuban National Anthem at 11:00 o´clock sharp, about a hundred caravanists boarded their vehicles to take to South Florida´s main streets.
Those who oppose us want to put on a show anyway, said Roberto Yis, member of the solidarity project Puentes de Amor (Bridges of Love).
In a live-streaming on social media, Yis stated: “We want peace and love between the Cuban and U.S. people” and claimed “we are on the side of those who found and build”.
Haters are always trying to create incidents against the Cuban family, but we will not stop and we will do more, warned Professor Carlos Lazo, Bridges of Love Project Coordinator.
Lazo reiterated that only “a small group of bad children oppose the the US blockade to be lifted”, but most wants Cuba’s national sovereignty to be respected and sanctions to be stopped, that´s why we are going to continue fighting”.
The solidarity caravan also intends to get contributions to send powdered milk to the Children´s Hospitals in both Guantánamo and Santiago de Cuba provinces.
Lazo reaffirmed in previous statements to Prensa Latina that the actions against the end of the blockade “nobody can stop them”, since “it is necessary to end this irrational and cruel policy and build bridges of love”.
