Caravan in Miami against the U.S. blockade on Cuba

Washington, Mar 31 (Prensa Latina) Wherever you are, raise your voice for the Cuban people, this is the call today to participants, on the last Sunday of the month, in the international caravan against the U.S. blockade on Cuba.

The promotion published on social media by activist Carlos Lazo, organizer of the Bridges of Love movement, says:”International caravan this Sunday, March 31, 2024! In Miami! Caravan for the end of the sanctions that are stifling the Cuban family!”.

The coercive measures of the United States, prevent the entry of food and medicines to Cuba, the Cuban-American professor said while recalling that “the blockade seeks to starve and sicken children, the elderly, women and men” on the island.

He also warned that in Cuba here is lack of medicines to treat children with cancer, pacemakers to extend the lives of heart patients and lack of glasses and supplies for those who are going blind and cannot have cataract surgery”. Stifling the Cuban economy causes pain and death, Lazo stressed.

Earlier, in statements to Prensa Latina, the activist said that “on behalf of Bridges of Love, he thanked the Cuban authorities and the competent bodies for having extended the extension for free entry to Cuba, the exemption of tariffs for food and medicines, and hygiene utensils”.

He commented that this is something positive for the Cuban community; positive also for the country, for our land; it is one of the ways in which bridges of love are built between Cuban emigrants and their nation.

Among all Cubans inside and outside the island, we can do a lot to mitigate the effects of the blockade, to fill the gaps, he concluded.

On March 27, the Cuban Official Gazette published the extension of the waiver period for these imports until June 30.
