OPEN LETTER FROM ICAP TO THE NO WAR ON CUBA MOVEMENT
ICAP, Instituto Cubano de Amistad con los Pueblos (the Cuban Institute for Friendship with the People) is the largest international solidarity NGO in Cuba. It is the organization with which many U.S. groups work to create people-to-people exchanges with Cuba.
In the name of ICAP and the Cuban people, we'd like to express our gratitude to all our friends in the United States, brothers and sisters who strongly support the cause of the Cuban people, which is the cause of the oppressed people in the world.
Under the present conditions, when the Bush Administration insists in creating and maintaining a war environment, your organization -very properly named NO WAR ON CUBA- becomes a strong weapon to oppose the madness of the Empire and bring the light of PEACE to the world.
We're greatly grateful for all your efforts in organizing the counterdemonstration in Washington, D.C. last May. Also, we want to thank you for your support to oppose all forms of aggression against our people, and in favor of lifting the unjust blockade, as well as for your campaign to free our five heroes imprisoned in US jails.
We're sure that your support is unconditioned and everlasting.
Please, extend our gratefulness to all our friends in the States, to all people of goodwill and dignity.
Together, we can do it! This is our slogan.
We know we can put an end to unjust wars together!
Thanks again for your Solidarity and Friendship
President of ICAP
