    20th Anniversary Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba!
    July 1st - July 31st 2012

    By Alison Bodine

    This summer for the 23rd time, the Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba will challenge the United State’s government’s economic and travel blockade on Cuba, that has been imposed by the U.S. government on the Cuban people for over 50 years. The Caravan will travel through up to 140 cities in the U.S. and Canada, raising awareness about the U.S. blockade and gathering humanitarian aid to take to Cuba. After two weeks of traveling through the U.S. there is a blockade-busting border crossing into Mexico when participants directly break U.S. law in an act of civill disobediance by taking humanitarian aid that is destined for Cuba across the border into Mexico. Participants will then travel through Mexico and depart for nine days in Cuba, participating in a variety of educational and cultural events.

    This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Pastors for Peace Caravans to Cuba. Over the past 20 years thousands of participants and over 30000 tons of humanitarian aid have been brought to Cuba, building a ‘peopleto- people’ foreign policy based on mutual respect, solidarity and friendship between the people of the U.S. and Cuba.

    This Caravan also commemorates Rev. Lucius Walker, Jr., the founding director of Pastors for Peace, who died peacefully in September 2010.

    Now is the time to secure your spot on the bus!
