San Francisco Caravan: End the U.S. Blockade of Cuba
U.S. HANDS Off CUBA!
1875 Marin St.
For endorsements and any questions you can email email@example.com or call 415-821-6545
For 60 plus years, Cuba has remained under the criminal blockade of the United States government. The world sees the U.S. blockade of Cuba for what it is: an unjust and criminal attack on the sovereignty and rights of the Cuban people.
The Trump administration adopted 243 unilateral measures to further tighten the blockade and strangle Cuba, and the Biden administration has yet to reverse a single one of Trump’s measures.
On Sunday, July 25, Cuban-American anti-blockade travelers and supporters who are trekking 1,300 miles from Miami to Washington D.C. will rally in front of the White House at Lafayette Park to deliver demands and a petition signed by over 25,000 people to the Biden administration. Solidarity caravans and other actions will take place in many U.S. cities in support of this effort.
The impact of the blockade on Cuba is immense—immeasurable in many ways. The economic, financial, and commercial blockading of Cuba impacts all aspects of life for the Cuban people and poses many limitations for Cuban society from being able to reach its maximum potential. Access to building materials, technology, devices, and treatments is severely restricted. In 2020 alone, an estimated $5 billion is estimated in losses because of the blockade.

END TYRANNY IN THE PHILIPPINES
*** People’s State of the Nation Address***
12Noon – Mural Painting
1:00pm Rally Program
Philippine Consulate General – San Francisco
447 Sutter St.
(nr. Powell St.)
In solidarity with Bayan USA, the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP), Malaya Movement, and grassroots Philippine organizations across the Nation, we would like to formally invite you to attend the People’s SONA, short for People’s State of the Nation Address.
People’s SONA (PSONA) functions as an alternative to the president’s State of the Nation Address, and aims to unveil the malicious nature of Duterte’s rule as President of the Philippines. We question Duterte’s competence as leader of the Filipino people and we condemn his administration for prioritizing military and police budgets over the wellbeing of our people back home, among other transgressions. Thus, in response to the rise of Rodrigo Duterte’s attacks on the people our proposed call is, End Tyranny in the Philippines: Duterte, Wakasan na! Through PSONA, we aim to bring together as many people as possible to show that we will not sit idly by as the Duterte regime kills, imprisons, and neglects the Philippine masses
PSONA is a worldwide event, with Filipino-led organizations and allies from all over the globe uniting to call out the lies and offenses of the Duterte regime. By uniting behind and centering the voices of those oppressed and dispossessed by Duterte’s administration, we address the true state of the Philippines, that which Duterte’s State of Nation Address hides behind faux nationalism and countless other falsehoods.
