Students from 20 Nations Demand Release of Cubans in U.S. Jails

Camaguey, June 7 (RHC)-- Students from 20 nations who are taking courses in the eastern Cuban province of Camaguey held an event to express their support of the cause of the Cuban anti-terrorist fighters held in U.S. jails.

In the context of an ongoing international campaign and the 3rd Five for the Five action in Washington D.C. claiming the freedom of Antonio Guerrero, Gerardo Hernandez and Ramon Labanino, the international students in Cuba also demanded Washington ends its hostile policy against the island.

Haitian Luis Vidal called on peace-loving people around the world to urge Washington to lift the over-50-year economic blockade of Cuba and to free the three anti-terrorists who were imprisoned in 1998 after they, along Rene Gonzalez and Fernando Gonzalez, monitored violent organizations that planned terrorist actions against the people of Cuba.

The president of the Youth Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban Five in the eastern province, Jorge Belisario, said that the return to Cuba of the three men can only be achieved with the solidarity of the people of the world and particularly with the support of the U.S. people.

During the evening session, the students stressed the example given by the mothers and relatives of the five anti-terrorist fighters, who have suffered the absence of their beloved ones but have always expressed their optimism and spirit of struggle.
