Picket Actions in Canada demanding: End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba NOW!

:::VANCOUVER:::

End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba NOW!
Monthly Picket Action to End the U.S. Blockade on Cuba!

THURSDAY December 17 - 4pm-5pm
U.S. Consulate
1075 W. Pender, Downtown Vancouver

On December 17, 2014 a tremendous shout of joy was heard in the streets of downtown Vancouver as the Free the Cuban 5 Committee – Vancouver gathered in front of the U.S. consulate in Vancouver for the 110th, and final, picket action for the Cuban 5; this time to celebrate the historic victory of the return of the 5 Heroes to the Cuba, after over 16 years of unjust imprisonment in the United States.

On that morning of December 17, the governments of Cuba and the United States announced the re-establishing of diplomatic relations between the two countries. A year after this important announcement, the criminal and illegal U.S. blockade remains in full force. On October 27, 2015, the world voted overwhelmingly, 191 countries to 2, in favour of Cuba’s resolution demanding an end to the criminal and illegal blockade of Cuba by the United States. Only the U.S. and Israel voted against the resolution, this clearly showed the hypocrisy of the U.S. government talk about normalizing relations with Cuba while maintaining the cruel and inhumane blockade.

Join Friends of Cuba Against the U.S. Blockade – Vancouver this December 17th in front of the U.S. consulate in Vancouver as we mark one year after the historic victory of the freedom of the Cuban 5 Heroes and as we continue our struggle to demand:

  • END THE BLOCKADE ON CUBA NOW!
  • RETURN GUANTANAMO TO CUBA NOW!
  • US GOVERNMENT STOP THE CAMPAIGN OF ‘REGIME CHANGE’ IN CUBA AND IMMEDIATELY STOP INTERFERING IN CUBA’S SOVEREIGNTY AND SELF-DETERMINATION!

Protest at U.S. Embassy: Lift the Blockade on Cuba! Return Guantanamo to Cuba!

End the illegal and unjust economic and financial blockade of Cuba by the U.S.!
Return Guantanamo to Cuba and close the illegal torture centre and naval base!

THURSDAY December 17 - 4pm
U.S. Embassy
490 Sussex Drive, Ottawa

On the one year anniversary of the historic release of the Cuban 5 and the beginning of normalization of relations between Cuba and the U.S. protests are taking place in cities across Canada and around the world to demand the U.S. end its hostilities against the Cuban people, their sovereignty and economic and political system. Cuba has stood by its principles and insists on an end to U.S. attacks on the Cuban people and recognition of Cuban sovereignty for normalization to proceed. The world's people are standing by Cuba and demanding the same just as Cuba has been an example of internationalism and defence of humanity and social progress.
