15 years, Enough!
Αρχίζει σήμερα (12/9/2013) στην Αβάνα η Διεθνής Συνάντηση για την Απελευθέρωση των Πέντε, «15 χρόνια είναι αρκετά, φτάνει πια»!
The Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples call friends of solidarity for urgent action to attend the International Encounter for the Release of the Cuban Five. 15 years, Enough! to take place on next September 12th in Havana in order to strengthen the worldwide campaign being held.
There is no other alternative in the current outlook than resorting to the international solidarity with the purpose of reaching the people from the US.
The prosecutor Lennard has not given any response about the extraordinary appeal or Habeas corpus presented by Gerardo, Ramón, Antonio and Fernando. Neither the US Supreme Court have taken action in order to lobby the government of the United States to reveal what have concealed so far in regard to the illegal operation in the financing and sponsorship of journalists and the major media with the aim of carrying out the campaign of hatred and threats that led the trial in Miami to be a travesty of justice in detriment of our five antiterrorist comrades.
Gerardo is still in wait for the Supreme Court to grant him an audience to disprove the most heinous and completely false accusation by which he was convicted to life sentence. The Supreme Court has not decided yet with respect to the absurd motion of the US Government that attempts to rule out a substantial part in the Habeas Corpus; as well as the calling for Washington to show the satellite images screening the incident from February 24th, 1996. Its concealment for over 17 years already is the best evidence of the total illegality of the worst charge filed against the man to serve the longest sentece of the Cuban Five.
This complex situation never has been a hindrance for our struggle, we will continue with the legal battle, and we will double up our efforts to mobilize the international public opinion, we will converge on that painful date to create new initiatives and commitments in order to tear down the walls of silence. As Rene asserted before the Cuban parliament: “Hackneyed paths will not lead us to justice”.
Thousands of US people are naive to the truth so we call for urgent action to reach the US public opinion, citizen by citizen and by means of the new technologies of information to demand Obama to use his presidential prerogative to free Gerardo, Ramón, Antonio y Fernando.
Only the international solidarity can free the Cuban Five.
¡15 years of punishment are an embarrassment!
¡Release the Cuban Five, Now!
