Washington, Jul 19 (Prensa Latina) For the first time since Pastors for Peace began to travel to Cuba from the United States, the caravan cannot travel to the Caribbean island, due to the Covid-19 pandemic that is currently hitting the world.
Gail Walker, executive director of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO)/Pastors for Peace, assured that as soon as possible, the caravan will return to Cuba.
Walker made that statement in her video message to the HotHouse Global Chicago, on the occasion of Saturday’s concert dedicated to Cuba, which will have its second day on Sunday through different digital platforms.
For some 30 years, the Pastors for Peace caravan has promoted a gesture of solidarity and resistance against the US-imposed economic blockade against Cuba, she said.
The activist recalled the legacy of her father, late Reverend Lucius Walker, who promoted people-to-people exchanges so that US citizens could learn about the Cuba’s situation.
Since 1992, the members of Pastors for Peace have overcome the travel restrictions imposed by Washington over the years, and remain committed to the cause of ending the US blockade.
