July 4, 2010—Peace Arch Park, Blaine Washington, Vancouver B.C. 15 people traveled from Olympia and Seattle to meet a Canadian delegation to the Pastors for Peace Cuba Caravan. PFP organizes an annual Friendshipment in an effort to provide supplies directly to Cubans, and to raise awareness by breaking what many consider to be an immoral US blockade of Cuba.
Over the years, PFP has transported from the USA, Canada and Europe hundreds of vehicles (many buses and ambulances) and tonnes of other basic supplies (like notebooks for students.)
The Canadian delegation made it safely across the border on Sunday, July 4, and are currently in Olympia. There will be a pizza party to welcome the group tomorrow evening at Fertile Ground Guesthouse. More information about that here.
I also uploaded some photos to flickr, and posted a slideshow of them at Peace is Possible, here.
