Another Cuban demonstration in Miami against Bush measures

MIAMI.óMore than 550 people participated in a demonstration last Saturday against the measures preventing Cuban émigrés in the United States from visiting their relatives on the island and helping them economically, outside the offices of ultra-right congresswoman Iliana Ros, according to Andrés Gómez, coordinator of the Antonio Maceo Brigade.

The demonstration, sponsored by the association of Christian Mothers in Defense of the Family and supported by the Alliance of Cuban Workers (ATC), the Martí Alliance, the Antonio Maceo Brigade and the José Martí Association is the third in three consecutive Saturdays condemning and rejecting these cruel measures.

For all the organizers and participants it is very important both to maintain this public voice and to increase the numbers of people participating. It should be recalled that the majority of this southern Florida community are against the measures.

The organizers have announced that the next protest will be Saturday, August 7 at 11:00 a.m. outside the offices of the mayor and city councilors, with a letter demanding that the local authorities should consider in order to pass a resolution against the measures.
