Pastors for Peace prepares to launch 18th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba
The Pastors for Peace 18th Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba will start a tour next month of over 120 U.S. and Canadian cities to collect humanitarian aid as a collective challenge to the blockade and travel ban to the island imposed by Washington on U.S. citizens.

A spokesperson for Pastors for Peace/IFCO said that their Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba help draw domestic and international attention toward the cruel and immoral U.S. economic blockade by delivering humanitarian aid to our sisters and brothers in Cuba without asking permission for a U.S. Treasury Department license.

The caravan members will travel in school buses, trucks, and cars to Cuba via Mexico, according to the website.

The supplies from solidarity groups across the U.S. and Canada include computers, bicycles, educational material, medical equipment, Bibles, solar panels, powdered milk, infant formula and dietary supplements, clothing and tools.

The Pastors for Peace activists will be welcomed in Sacramento, California on July 4th by a group of local solidarity-with-Cuba organizations.
