THE Pastors for Peace 19th Caravan to Cuba
The U.S./Cuba Friendshipment, a project of Pastors for Peace (the global out reach of the Interreligious Foundation for Communities Organizations), travels to Cuba every year, refusing to accept a license from the U.S. Treasury Department, risking fines, and jail, not just to deliver aid but to break the decades long blockade design to crush the sovereignty of the Cuban people. This year the Caravan will travel on 15 separate routes stopping for community meeting along the way, gathering caravanistas and donations, converging on the Texas/Mexico border, to commit civil disobedience, breaking the U.S. Blockade. Continuing to the port of Tampico Mexico, where the Mexican dock worker donate their labor loading the donations onto the Cuban ships while the caravanistas fly off to Cuba.
