Supporting Anti-Blockade Demonstrations

On the weekend before this year’s UN vote

The invitation has responded to (edited):

Dear Cuba solidarity and anti-US blockade organizations and activists/Sisters and Brothers!

You are invited
The UN General Assembly’s annual vote to condemn Washington’s blockade of Cuba will take place over two days on Wednesday, November 2 and Thursday, November 3. This vote on the “necessity of ending the economic, commercial, and financial embargo imposed by the United States of America against Cuba” offers an urgent opportunity for united international action.

We urge you to bring your ideas and join us at meetings to discuss building a powerful, united demonstration in New York City, with supporting actions in cities around the world, on the weekend before the UN vote. This also corresponds with the monthly Puentes de Amor Caravans against the US anti-Cuba blockade.

We are demanding an end to the US blockade of Cuba with an emphasis that Washington remove Cuba from its list of “state sponsors of terrorism.”​

We want to be pro-active in our organizing, bold and ready!

Despite the challenges of a worldwide pandemic, our anti-blockade movement has made strides forward over the past couple of years.

Let’s join with the overwhelming majority of the world’s nations and peoples in condemning the US blockade of Cuba for what will be the 30th time!
