HAVANA, Cuba.-The 30th edition of the United States-Cuba Pastors for Peace Friendship Caravan paid tribute this Wednesday to Lucius Walker, the organization’s leader and human rights defender.

During the ceremony, pastor and board member of the Martin Luther King Center, Izet Sama, explained there are people and institutions trying to stop this caravan of solidarity, but it will be difficult to stop the force of justice and sovereignty that unites them with the island.

The real purpose is the solidarity given to a people threatened by an economic, trade and financial blockade imposed by the White House, Sama said.

Pastors for Peace zealously guard the legacy of the friendship between the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, and the founder of the American religious organization, Lucius Walker as a bridge between the two peoples.

Gail Walker, executive director of the Interreligious Foundation for Community Organization/Pastors for Peace (IFCO), stated this trip is a show of courage and growing solidarity of Caravanistas with Cuba.
