Washington DC is experiencing some lively days. The US capital is, for the third time in a row, the theatre of public expressions of solidarity with the three Cuban antiterrorist fighters who are still criminally imprisoned in the United States.
Legislators from at least one dozen countries, lawyers, religious leaders, mayors from many cities, artists from the screen and the theatre, peace activists and many other personalities are attending
the public demonstrations and other activities requesting from the US Government the release of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramòn Labañino and Antonio Guerrero, serving long sentences in US Federal penitentiaries.
To have some idea of the enormity of the sanctions unjustly imposed on them, suffice it to say that they cover two life terms, plus sixty six years, ten months and five years of supervised freedom.
A ridiculous judgement meted out for monitoring terrorist activities and plans aimed at Cuba by CIA funded terrorist bases in South Florida!
Along with Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez, both of them back in Cuba after fully serving their prison terms, the Five, as they are known internationally, were the victims of a farcical judicial process held in Miami, the scene of rabid counterrevolutionary conspiracy and of these CIA-funded terrorist organizations whose mission is to attack Cuba.
This campaign for the freedom of The Five is today focused on the federal capital of the United States, where all the irregularities of the legal process are being exposed, and the absolute injustice committed against the five patriots.
The current actions in favour of The Five in Washington are also aimed at denouncing the complicity of the American press in the trial against the Five in MIAMI.
All the evidence points to the White House distributing funds among pally journalists so the facts of the case would be distorted.
The current campaign in Washington for the release of The Five will continue until the 11th. of June.
And besides the demands for the release of the Cuban patriots who remain imprisoned , it also calls for a change in an irrational US policy of implacable hostility against
Cuba. Enough is enough, or, as they say in Cuba: Yah!
