Car Caravan To End US Sanctions And Show Global Solidarity

By The Resistance Center for Peace and Justice, Popular Resistance.

On April 20, 2020, about twenty cars joined a rally in the streets of downtown Northampton, Massachusetts calling for national and international solidarity as we face the Covid-19 pandemic. Signs were placed on cars calling for an end to the US sanctions on Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, and North Korea; to allow Cuban medical staff and medicine to enter our country to help fight the Coronavirus pandemic and save lives; to end the blockade of Gaza; to bail out people not corporations; and to fund Medicare for all, not endless wars and the military-industrial complex.

The rally was organized by The Latin America Solidarity Coalition of Western Massachusetts together with the Resistance Center for Peace & Justice of Northampton, and co-sponsored by Code Pink of Western Massachusetts and Arise for Social Justice of Springfield. The rally was blessed by the presence of members of the Nipponzan-Myōhōji Peace Pagoda of Leverett, Massachusetts.
