Cubans feel deep affection for Lucius Walker

United Nations, Sep 7 (Prensa Latina) The US Reverend Lucius Walker (1930-2010), founder of the Pastors for Peace organization, has a special place in all Cuban hearts, assured on Monday the country’s ambassador to the UN, Ana Silvia Rodriguez.

Cuba’s alternate permanent representative to the United Nations recalled on Twitter the religious leader, 10 years after his death.

‘Thank you dear friend for all your support and courage,’ said the Cuban diplomat.

The Reverend Lucius Walker was the main promoter of the Pastors for Peace project, which is now continued by his daughter, Gail Walker.

In addition to bringing solidarity aid, those caravans that traveled to Cuba regardless of the US restrictions, emerged with the purpose of facing the US economic, commercial and financial blockade against the island.

Walker, whose ashes rest in Havana fulfilling his last will, aroused the affection of Cubans for his permanent solidarity and the defense of their right to self-determination.
