The "Blue Green Machine" of the Pastors For Peace caravan hit Chico this July 6th about 6pm and a good time was had by all. The big blue green bus pulled up in front of Subud Hall in Chico to cheers and smiles all around. A good crowd gathered for a good pot luck meal followed by a review of the annual violation of the U.S. blockade of Cuba. What a sad history that is. Even CBS's 60 Minutes has had a show that mocks the blockade. And we learned about the Cuban 5. Described by the great Howard Zinn in 2007 as, "An unforgivable act of cruelty." It motivates me to write another letter in their defense.
