GREETINGS FROM AROUND THE WORLD:
- KATRIEN DEMUYNCK – Honorary president of Belgium's Cubanismo.be, originally founded in 1992 as the Cuba Socialista Initiative, an activist movement in support of the Cuban revolution. At the moment Katrien is the honorary president, as the leadership is in the hands of the younger generation. Katrien was also the founder and coordinator of the European Coordination for the Liberation of the Cuban 5.
- GUSTAVO ROJAS – University professor and founding member of the Colombian Movement in Solidarity with Cuba (MCSC)
- KATERINA ANDREYEVA – An activist of Europa por Cuba programme and a communist from Donetsk.

- PLUS VIDEOS – Marking the 63rd anniversary of the Cuban revolution and the 169th anniversary of the birth of Cuban leader Jose Marti! Also, videos from Australia-Cuba Friendship Society WA, la Table de concertation de solidarité Québec– Cuba, the Ukrainian Committee "Stop the blockade of Cuba", Ottawa Cuba Connections & more!
++ Greetings from CNC member groups

Event Co-Chairs:
- TAMARA HANSEN – Executive member of the Canadian Network on Cuba, Coordinator of Vancouver Communit $91,000 USD for its potential civil liability in the so-called ‘violation’. We know that the real violation is not U.S.-Cuba travel, but the over 60-year U.S. criminal blockade on Cuba.

- JULIO FONSECA – Executive member of the Canadian Network on Cuba, President of the Juan Gualberto Gomez Association of Cuban Residents in Toronto.

In January 2022, the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) laid fines against online accommodation rental service Airbnb Inc. The U.S. Treasury issued a statement explaining that Airbnb agreed to pay $91,000 USD for its potential civil liability in the so-called ‘violation’. We know that the real violation is not U.S.-Cuba travel, but the over 60-year U.S. criminal blockade on Cuba.  
Ben Rhodes, a former National Security Advisor under Obama, described the OFAC decision as, “stupid, counterproductive and Trumpian to deny Americans the ability to directly facilitate income to Cubans and establish connections between our people.”

This is further evidence that the Biden Administration is doubling down on the Trump era tightening of the U.S. blockade on Cuba. Despite these challenges Cuba continues to raise its voice, alongside the world community, demanding: LIFT THE U.S. BLOCKADE ON CUBA NOW!

*** Everyone is encouraged to make protest signs, display banners, or wear t-shirts against the blockade. These can be displayed in a group photo at the end of the virtual picket! Of course, if you don’t have any of these items you are welcome to participate as you are! ***

1)    The program will begin with invited speakers and greetings.
2)    In concluding the virtual picket, those who wish to participate in the photo will be invited by the co-chairs to turn on their cameras to join in! More specific instructions will be given by co-chairs during the virtual picket. 
3)    If you are unfamiliar with Zoom or require technical support, please contact: webmaster@canadiannetworkoncuba.ca
