We will meet at 1pm on July 25 in the parking lot of the Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S Layton Blvd (S 27th St) Milwaukee 53215.

Generally on the last Sunday of each month, these caravans have now spread worldwide, initiated by Cuban-Americans in Miami to End the US blockade and to support Cuban families. The economic blockade of Cuba is now 60 years old, and under Trump US flights to most Cuban cities, most remittances, Western Union licenses, etc. were all shut down. Biden has not reversed any of this.

Biden and Congress must also recognize that 69% of undocumented workers in the US are also front-line “essential” workers. They should be given a swift path to citizenship and be eligible for all pandemic payments.

End all inhumane border separations and restrictions on family unification!

Nos reuniremos a la 1 pm el 25 de julio en el estacionamiento de Mitchell Park Domes, 524 S Layton Blvd (S 27th St) Milwaukee 53215.

Generalmente, el último domingo de cada mes, estas caravanas se han extendido por todo el mundo, iniciadas por cubanoamericanos en Miami para poner fin al bloqueo de Estados Unidos y apoyar a las familias cubanas. El bloqueo económico de Cuba tiene ahora 60 años, y bajo los vuelos de Trump de Estados Unidos a la mayoría de las ciudades cubanas, la mayoría de las remesas, las licencias de Western Union, etc. fueron cerradas.

Biden no ha revertido nada de esto.Biden y el Congreso también deben reconocer que el 69% de los trabajadores indocumentados en los Estados Unidos también son trabajadores “esenciales” de primera línea.

Se les debe dar un camino rápido hacia la ciudadanía y ser elegibles para todos los pagos por pandemia.¡Poner fin a todas las separaciones fronterizas inhumanas y las restricciones a la unificación familiar!

Message from the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP)to the Solidarity Movement with Cuba


Dear friends,


As reported by the highest leadership of the Communist Party of Cuba and the Revolutionary Government, street riots have occurred in our country, organized and sponsored by counterrevolutionary groups inside and outside the Island. These actions resulted from an organized plan designed and financed by the U.S. government in their attempt at overthrowing the Cuban Revolution. 

Just a few days after being isolated in front of the international community — when the United Nations General Assembly for the 29th time overwhelmingly voted in favor of lifting the blockade — the U.S. government used its propaganda machinery to foster the social disorder in the Island. They promoted a misinformation campaign aimed at imposing a public opinion matrix through the hashtag #SOSCuba. They used the new COVlD-19 outbreak and the complex economic situation that they themselves have increased by means of the intensification of the blockade to justify their hypocritical call for “humanitarian aid” in Cuba. 

The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples strongly rejects these actions, It is part of political-ideological destabilizing plan aimed at undermining our independence and sovereignty, manipulating the social network and the mass media. They are very much upset because for more than 60 years most of the Cuban people support the socialist and revolutionary project. Cuba is not alone. With solidarity, millions of friends from all over the world have joined us and will keep on accompanying us in our fight against an intensified economic, commercial and financial blockade. Together we reject the 243 additional measures from the last period. 

Next July 17th 9 am (Cuban local time) (Eastern) and @SiempreConCuba on Facebook and YouTube platforms, our Institute will present details of the present situation in Cuba. We make a call for you to follow us. These are times for raising our voices in defense of the truth and for rejecting and denouncing the imperialist threats. 

#LaCalleEsDeLosRevolucionarios(#StreetsBelongToTheRevolutionaryPeople)

Long live socialist, independent and sovereign Cuba!
