amacuba      My name is Mariama Taifa-Seitu. This summer I was presented with the opportunity to join IFCO/Pastors for Peace for the 26th “Friendshipment Caravan.”  My prior travels to Cuba in 2013 and 2014 were for self-education, but never for humanitarian purposes.  I want to give back to a country that has taught me so much about revolutionary action.

      From my prior experiences in Cuba, I have seen first-hand that the economic embargo is starving a whole nation, not promoting self-determination as the U.S. states.  I stand in solidarity with the Cuban people, and I have actively challenged the travel ban and the U.S. economic embargo through civil disobedience.  I would like to use the time and resources I have to continue the fight for self-determination against a reactionary policy.  I am open to any support from the community!  Thank you!
