Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba

Picnic at 5:30p Event at 6:30p Thurs, July 8th

 

“The U.S. Government Doesn’t Want You to Go to Cuba We say come with us to see for yourself.”

 

That is the motto of the Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan project which rolls through Portland on July 8th to raise money and collect material aid.

 

Many of us hoped that President Obama’s election would bring about some changes in many aspects of US policy — including the ending of the illegal, immoral, and internationally condemned US economic blockade against Cuba. The travel ban on US citizens visiting Cuba remains.
