Ciego de Avila, Cuba, May 8. - The president of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples, Kenia Serrano, stated in this city that the world movement for the release of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in U.S. prisons since 1998 have been stregthened.
During a meeting in Ciego de Avila with Cuban and foreign students, and civil society organizations, Serrano pointed out that the support for the cause of Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Fernando Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero and Rene Gonzalez grows every day.
The Five, as they are known internationally, are currently serving harsh sentences for alerting Cuba on terrorist actions by Florida-based terrorist groups.
Serrano said that there are Committees of Solidarity with the Five in 111 nations, but we should be more energetic, because the struggle for their return home will not cease until they are in their homeland along with their relatives.
Serrano described as very positive the world campaig "Five Days for the Five", held recently in Washington and involving hundreds of activities in several U.S. states and European and Latin American countries.
During that campaign, some 300 friends of Cuba demanded justice for the Cuban antiterrorist fighters in front of the White House, and took actions in over 20 countries, indicating the maturity of the call for support in the world.(Prensa Latina)
