Has your City Council or State Legislature passed a resolution telling Congress it is time to end the blockade? Already five City Councils took this step. What about yours?

And tell the world what you have done to end the blockade.

Remember the tuitazo on the 17th of EVERY month until the U.S. Congress ends the blockade and restores the right of people to freely travel to Cuba from the U.S. (Yes, although many of our neighbors have traveled to Cuba, it is still explicitly illegal by U.S. law to vacation in Cuba.)

Along with solidarity committees and groups from around the world, we join the actions calling for a TUITAZO on Monday April 17 calling for the end of the criminal blockade against Cuba that continues intact.

We propose the following hashtag for the Tuitazo:

We suggest to include the tweeters of Trump @POTUS
