Pastors for Peace Founder Lucius Walker Dies at 80


Americans  who support normal relations with Cuba have lost a great friend.  I had the opportunity to meet the Reverend Walker at Cuba Solidarity Day in Washington D.C. in 2004. His annual US-Friendship Caravans to Cuba in defiance of the immoral embargo against Cuba were an act of true civil disobedience . He brought  computers and medicines to the island, but as  importantly, exposed many young activists to the idea that it was sometimes necessary to act contrary to U.S. policy when that policy (the economic blockade of Cuba)  is wrong.
