Portlanders break the blockade on Cuba!

program date: 
Tue, 07/07/2009

For more than 40 years, the Cuban people have faced an economic, commercial and financial blockade by the government of the United States of America.

 

Cubans say this is one of the most cruel, inhuman and prolonged policies of hostility endured by any people in the history of human civilization.

 

Throughout these last 44 years, a total of 10 different U.S. administrations have reinforced and expanded the complex system of laws and measures that make up the blockade established by the U.S. government against the people of Cuba.

 

This policy has inflicted and continues to inflict serous damage to the Cuban people’s material, psychological and spiritual welfare, while seriously hindering its economic, cultural and social development.

 

An event was held in Portland on Sunday to send a painted solidarity school bus of aid from the Pacific Northwest to Cuba. The bus will be joining thirty other vehicles, and over one hundred participants, who will be crossing into Cuba on July 21st. This will be the first open attempt to break the blockade during the Obama administration.

 
Sunday’s event began with singer David Rovics.
 
Speakers include Alicia Jrapko and Nita Palmer.  The segment ends with a song by Maria Damaris.
