On August 4, 2014, IFCO/Pastors for Peace reported:
"The Blockade is Broken!
Back home from Cuba
The 25th US-Cuba Friendshipment Caravan has returned across the border into Texas safely and without incident.
Today we crossed the border from Mexico after traveling to Cuba without a license from the US Government, as an act of loving, non-violent civil disobedience.
LOVE IS OUR LICENSE
Keep checking our Facebook page; we have lots of photos of the trip, and we're anxious to share them with you."
