July, 24 2012
Havana, Cuba, Jul 24.- The members of the 23 Pastors for Peace Caravan participated in a workshop in which they learned about Cuba´s economic and social reality.
In La Casa de la Amistad (Friendship House) in the capital, the caravan members were informed about the updating of the economic model developed in the Caribbean nation, the preparation of medical personnel, and the operation of the defense system against natural disasters.
One of the directors, Gail Walker, said it is necessary to know the reality of the island and continue the fight against the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the U.S.A since the 60s of last century, reported the evening edition of the National Television Newscast.
This time the caravan brought 100 tons of aid for sectors like health and education, two of the hardest hit by Washington's policy against Havana.
As part of their agenda, the caravan members will visit centers of cultural and historical interest, besides visiting the provinces of Matanzas, in the west, and central Villa Clara and Sancti Spiritus. They will also meet with relatives of five Cubans imprisoned in the U.S. since 1998. (Radio Cadena Agramonte).
