July 25, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Chicago Rally for an End to the U.S. Blockade of Cuba!
Carlos Lazo, a Cuban-American school teacher and Iraq war veteran, has been on a 1,300 mile pilgrimage — with six other Cuban Americans—all the way from Miami! He will arrive in Washington, DC on July 25 to present the Biden Administration with a petition signed by over 25,000 calling for an end to the U.S. blockade and demanding:
• the end of all sanctions
• the restoration of remittances
• the resumption of flights from the U.S., not only to Havana but to all the regional centers of Cuba
• the reopening of the U.S. Embassy in Havana
• a restart to the program of family reunification
Chicagoans will rally on July 25 at 1 pm at Michigan Ave. and Ida B. Wells Drive in solidarity with these demands.
Let’s support building bridges of love between Cuba and the United States.
Join the call to end the U.S. sanctions now!
