‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR JULY 30, 2021: ‘Let Cuba Live’ Rally in Front of the White House to End Illegal U.S. Economic Blockade and Sanctions on the Island Nation

Hundreds of protesters rally in front of the White House to say “Let Cuba Live” and to demand that the illegal U.S.embargo and sanctions on Cuba be lifted. While supporting a campaign led by Cuban Americans to end the blockade, these protesters were also the target of hostile far-right demonstrators who tried but failed in their attempt to stop this action for Cuba solidarity, which is shared by almost every country on the planet. The rally welcomed the Bridges of Love / Puentes De Amor project of Seattle teacher Carlos Lazo, a Cuban American who walked 1300 miles to DC from Miami with friends to deliver petitions signed by 27,000 people across the country to lift the blockade.

With Rev. Graylan Hagler, Medea Benjamin, Sean Blackmon, Carlos Lazo, Adeyemi Bandele, Attorney Jose Pertierra, Robin Harris of the Green Party Florida, Omari Musa, Musician Patricio Zamorano.
