He will arrive in Washington, DC 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
Let’s be there to greet them and support his project of building bridges of love between Cuba and the United States. Join the call to end the U.S. sanctions now.
