December 17, 2014 was a historic day, US President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro both announced the first steps towards restablishing diplomatic ties between the US and Cuba after over 50 years of US hostility towards Cuba. However, despite ongoing negotiations and some important steps forward, the US government is still refusing to lift its cruel and inhuman blockade against Cuba.
The Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba is a U.S.-based Cuba solidarity project that each summer brings U.S. citizens to Cuba to challenge the US Blockade and travel ban against Cuba.
Cuba solidarity organizations across Canada have supported the Caravan since the beginning over two decades ago. This year Cuba solidarity activists and Caravan supporters from across British Columbia and Washington State will once again get together at Peace Arch Park for a picnic & rally to support Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba and to demand an end to the US blocakde on Cuba!
Rain or Shine!
The event will include a potluck lunch (please bring a dish to share if you can!)
