The US government says you can't go to Cuba and see things for yourself. Our Friendshipment Caravans to Cuba call domestic and international attention to the cruel and immoral US economic blockade by delivering humanitarian aid to our sisters and brothers in Cuba without asking permission for a US Treasury Department license. They form a crucial part of the worldwide campaign to end the blockade and create normal relations
between the US and Cuba.
In November 2007, the United Nations once again voted overwhelmingly (183-4) to condemn the US blockade. Meanwhile the Bush administration and its "Commission for Assistance to a Free Cuba" continue desperately to look for more ways to starve the Cuban people into surrendering to US domination. We think that the tide is turning in the US against the blockade. But this issue cannot be left to the politicians – we must take the lead and challenge them by implementing a People to People Foreign Policy that calls for an end to this insidious and immoral policy.
