Caravans and rallies demanding an end to the U.S. economic war against Cuba took place Feb. 27 in cities across the U.S., in Canada and worldwide.

In Miami some 40 cars with 60 people rolled through the streets bearing Cuban flags and posters calling for the end of U.S. sanctions against Cuba. Among those joining the action was Carlos Lazo, a Seattle teacher and leader of Puentes de Amor (Bridges of Love), who helped initiate these monthly caravans in 2020.

The actions, organized by local Cuba solidarity coalitions and the National Network on Cuba, protest Washington’s more than 60-year-long drive to overturn Cuba’s socialist revolution.

In New York the caravan of about half a dozen vehicles wound through the streets of the Bronx. The action was organized as part of a Cuba-Puerto Rico solidarity rally.

Other U.S. cities where protests against the embargo took place that day include Seattle; Chicago; and Bloomington, Indiana.

In Canada, actions took place in front of U.S. consulates in Montreal and Toronto, as well as in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Other protests took place in Tunisia, Angola, Jamaica, the Bahamas, Nicaragua and the United Kingdom.
