HAVANA TIMES — The Pastors for Peace Friendshipment Caravan to Cuba has just crossed the Mexican border at Reynosa, en route to the port of Tampico.

The buses, other vehicles, all the people accompanying them and the humanitarian aid (minus six computers that were taken by the US customs) are now in Reynosa, Mexico.

One thought on “Pastors for Peace Caravan to Cuba on Mexican Soil

  • What is it about totalitarian regimes that always seems to draw out the “useful idiots”? Other than the propaganda the dictators milk from these guys, I don’t know one single Cuban whose life has been impacted positively by Pastors for Peace. Those Sesame Street-painted buses that shuttle around Havana are never full and are usually found parked in Vedado for lack of gasoline or parts to repair them. I know I seem cynical but I am so tired of all these symbolic gestures.
