About 20 young US students graduate on Saturday in the Latin American School of Medicine in Cuba in the presence of members of the 22nd Pastors for Peace Caravan.The caravan arrived Friday in Cuba from Mexico, after collecting over 100 tons of humanitarian aid in 130 US cities.According to the program until next July 30, visitors will meet with Cuban students, artists, scientists and farmers. Helen Bernstein, interim coordinator of the organization, stressed the necessity of putting an end to the US economic, financial and commercial blockade against Cuba.The US authorities seized seven computers, as in 2010 when the convoy crossed into Mexico,
but we are here to fulfill the legacy of the Reverend Lucius Walker, founder of the initiative, who died in September 2010, specified Bernstein.Each year, the caravan challenges the punitive measures that have caused Cuba material losses estimated at 751,363 million dollars, according to official figures.The shipment, which should arrive in Cuba shortly, contains drugs, computers, school supplies, portable solar panels and 14 vehicles.
