In Italy, actions will take place in some 30 cities; in Paris, friends of Cuba will participate in several initiatives, while Spanish activists will hold rallies and numerous demonstrations, ICAP said.
A caravan of cars is also expected this Saturday in Auckland, New Zealand, and another one tomorrow in Brisbane, Australia.

These events are part of the international campaign for the end of the blockade, which will reach its climax on June 23, when Cuba will once again present before the United Nations the resolution against this economic siege.
