Beginning in June 2017, the Trump administration announced a series of measures which have undermined and, in some instances, reversed the diplomatic and travel liberalizations put in place under President Obama.

Pastors for Peace prepares next trip to Cuba


Pastors for Peace, Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization of the United States, prepares your next trip to Cuba. Executives of that institution, which has contributed so much to the strengthening of friendship ties between the two peoples, had to postpone the traditional caravan of solidarity due to problems in reserving tickets.

Gail Walker, executive director of Pastors for Peace, said that as another consequence of the blockade imposed by the United States on Cuba, the aircraft fleet that was available this summer was reduced and they could not secure the necessary seats.  However, he added, we do not desist and we remain determined to continue solidarity with the Cubans and now we are planning the November trip, which will be between the 16th and the 25th of that month.  Continue reading “Pastors for Peace prepares next trip to Cuba”
