Cuba hails demonstration against blockade in the US

Havana, Jun 27 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Sunday hailed the beginning of a new caravan in the United States to call on the US Government to lift the blockade against Cuba.

On his Twitter account, Rodriguez highlighted the tenacity of the Cubans and friends who are traveling from Miami to Washington DC to build bridges of love and call for the lifting of criminal policies that affect families in both countries.

Dozens of Cuban emigrants and humanitarian people on Sunday started the walk in Miami, Florida, coordinated by the Bridges of Love organization, headed by Professor Carlos Lazo.

The participants will walk the 2,000 km between both cities to reiterate to President Joe Biden that ‘it is time to lift the sanctions against the Cuban family.’

Some of the demands are the reopening of the consular services of the US Embassy in Havana, the sending of remittances to Cuba and the resumption of the family reunification plan suspended by former Republican President Donald Trump in 2017.
