Havana, Jul 6, -Pastors for Peace, a project of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization (IFCO) has begun its annual tour of the United States and Canada to denounce the economic blockade of Cuba.
Members of the 21st US-Cuba Friendship Caravan will also speak out against laws prohibiting Americans from traveling to the island, Granma newspaper reported on Monday.
The caravan will visit several Canadian cities, including Calgary, Vancouver, Ottawa, Regina, Kingston, Winnipeg, Toronto and British Columbia.
The caravan will then cross into the United States on routes through Washington, Minnesota, North Dakota, Massachusetts, Oregon, and several other states.
The caravan members will speak out against the economic war successive US administrations have maintained against the island, and talk about their efforts to make it possible for the US people to exercise their right to travel freely wherever they want.
They will also talk about the injustice committed against five Cuban anti-terrorist fighters unfairly imprisoned in the United States since 1998.
The 21st Caravan is devoted to childhood and the attention this group receives in Cuba. Donations it receives will be allocated for children and for work on the island to recover from hurricane damage.
