HAVANA, Cuba.- The 23rd Pastors for Peace Caravan, which continued on Thursday its tour of the US, has already collected almost 100 tons worth of items, mostly computers, medicines, school material and medical equipment.
The contributions consist of products for the benefit of sectors like sports, health and education principally, some of the ones that have been hit the most by the blockade imposed by Washington on the island, the Prensa Latina news agency reported.
During their tour, the activists updated the public on the negative effects of that hostile policy.
Over the last few days, the Caravan has visited cities like Chicago (Illinois), Berkeley (California) and Bloomington, (Indiana), as part of a program that took it to Little Rock (Arkansas), Birmingham (Alabama), Pleasant Hill (Tennessee), Pensacola, (Florida) and Silver City (New México) on Thursday.
Its members plan to visit at least 90 localities, before meeting on July 19 in McAllen, Texas, to cross the Mexican border, and from there transport its humanitarian cargo to the Caribbean island.
The 23rd Caravan has over 60 members, from Canada, the US, Germany, the United Kingdom and Mexico.
