Over 60 people rallied in front of Miami City Hall Oct. 31, above, demanding an end to the U.S. government’s embargo against Cuba. They set out in a caravan of 50 cars to Little Haiti’s Toussaint L’Ouverture Park, receiving a spirited response from many along the route. In Chicago, caravan participants rallied on a busy street corner in the working-class suburb of Berwyn, where several speakers denounced provocations planned in Cuba for Nov. 15 by groups organized and financed by Washington.
Similar actions took place that day in other U.S. cities, including Milwaukee, Minneapolis, New York, Phoenix, San Francisco, Seattle, and in Los Angeles and Boston the day before. In Canada, caravans and rallies were organized across the country, in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Edmonton and Vancouver. Solidarity actions also took place in London and Bristol in the United Kingdom, Managua, Panama City, Mexico City, Santo Domingo, the Bahamas and Turkey.
