The Blockade is Broken! Print E-mail

July 22, 2014

Today IFCO/Pastors for Peace with the help of a whole community of supporters brought 100 tons of aid* including 2 school buses, 2 trucks and a van for Cuban hospitals, schools and Centers.

Today we crossed the border into Mexico and on to Cuba, all without a license from the US Government, as an act of loving, non-violent civil disobedience. LOVE IS OUR LICENSE!

*In a somewhat unexplainable and illogical action, the US Customs officials allowed almost all the donated aid to pass through unmolested.  But they confiscated six three-year-old desktop computers, donated by a group in Arizona.  Other computers passed without problem.

We will continue to negotiate for these six computers -- but will not allow this to delay the delivery of the rest of the humanitarian aid.
