Walk to support Cuba

On July 14th, “Cuba Solidarity Campaign” (CSC) has called for a march to raise funds to reduce the effects of the US trade embargo.

 

Caminando Cuba  (4)In place for years, this financial isolation has been condemned by the United Nations General Assembly for the past 16 years.

But in 2004 President Bush initiated a policy of hostility towards a plan that called for reconciliation of Cuba and the United States.

It is estimated that the direct economic damage to the Cuban people is about US$ 8.9 billion.

During the Obama administration, fines for penalties exceed US$ 2 billion, the same as those imposed during both terms of President George W. Bush.

Caminando Cuba  (3)Taking into account the above information and the unfortunate situation of the Cuban people, CSC has planned a march along the Chess Valley, coinciding with the 60th anniversary of the start of the Cuban Revolution: July 26, 1953.

Each participant must obtain a minimum sponsorship of £30 (£5 for children).

The march is a circular route that will take around three hours and will begin and end in Little Chalfont, near metro stations Chalfont and Latimer. Along the way marchers will be able to appreciate the historic local town-houses.
