Planning ongoing local support and this year’s UN vote action
In light of increased hostilities and sanctions by the Biden administration, two actions are currently underway, a monthly Cuba support demonstration in Boston and planning for a nationwide solidarity event to coincide with this year’s UN condemnation of the U.S. embargo blockade.
Beginning on September 25 at 2:00, July26.org is supporting and co-sponsoring a last-Sunday-of-the-month stand-out in support of Cuba at Copley Square, initiated by MassPeaceAction, along with, among others, Dorchester People for Peace, First Baptist Church of Jamaica Plain, Women’s International League for Peace & Freedom, and Boston Democratic Socialists of America (DSA). More information is available here.
The date of the presentation and vote on the annual UN resolution condemning the US embargo/blockade of Cuba, introduced and overwhelmingly supported since 1992, is November 2nd and 3rd. July26.org has joined a host of organizations to support planning efforts for a major demonstration outside the UN along with solidarity protests across the country and world-wide the weekend before. This coincides with the October 30th stand-out at Copley Square. For more on this, see the edited version of the invitation to participate.
