Sunday, August 29, 2021. New York City – On Sunday, August 29, 2021, the New York-New Jersey Cuba Sí Coalition held a rally in Manhattan, New York City. They demanded the end of the US blockade against Cuba. The end of the US economic and travel sanctions against Cuba.
Originally, they were going to have its 8th car caravan, however they cancelled the car caravan.
The car caravan was going to departure from the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building (163 W 125th St.) at 2 PM. I went to the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building because I did not know the organization cancelled the caravan. I did not see cars or people with the Cuban flag, so I went to the ‘Dos Alas’ Mural (201 E 105th St.). The Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building and the ‘Dos Alas’ Mural are in Harlem.
The rally started around 2:30 PM. Different people spoke in support of Cuba and against the US blockade against the island (video coming soon).

The New York-New Jersey Cuba Sí Coalition says, “End the US blockade against Cuba. End US economic and travel sanctions against Cuba.”
The New York-New Jersey Cuba Sí Coalition adds that the demonstration is “to demand the US government lift all its economic and political sanctions against Cuba. Caravans in cities across North America, initiated by CubanAmericans in Florida, demand an end to the embargo causing great economic hardship in Cuba. Stop US attacks on the right to travel and family visits for residents of both countries. Washington’s attacks are particularly criminal in face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Cuba is a shining example of countering the pandemic on the island. And it is offering worldwide solidarity through volunteer medical brigades. This contracts with the social disaster and for profit healthcare facing millions in the US.”
Other cities where there were car caravans were: Bloomington, IN, Miami, FL, Schenectady, NY, Washington DC, Chicago, IL, Milwaukee, WI, Minneapolis, MN, Los Angeles, CA, Phoenix, AZ and Seattle, Washington. Click here to see some pictures from different cities.
On Thursday, July 15, 2021, a group of people gathered in Union Square to show solidarity with the Cuban government and the Cuban people. Protestors demanded that the United States of America end the blockade against Cuba and all regimen change efforts. Watch the video below.
