International Committee for the Freedom of the Cuban 5


September 4, 2010

This September 12th will mark the twelfth 
anniversary of the unjust imprisonment of Gerardo 
Hernandez, Ramón Labañino, René Gonzalez, Antonio 
Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez, our five brothers 
who are political prisoners in the United States 
for fighting against terrorism.

Twelve years in which Gerardo, Ramón and Antonio 
have served over a decade of time in high 
security prisons. Twelve years where René and 
Gerardo were unable to see their wives. Twelve 
years where the Five have been forced into 
isolation cells for more than 635 days.

Twelve years of pain for five Cuban families who 
have seen their children grow up without the 
presence of their fathers. Twelve years of having 
to say goodbye to their loved ones without the 
embrace of their children. Twelve years of not 
knowing when they will receive the next "blessed 
authorization" to see their relatives again.

Twelve years of shame for the justice of a 
country that pretends by lecturing the world about human rights.

The International Committee for the Freedom of 
the Cuban Five joins with others in 
the  international effort which starts on 
September 12 and extends to October 8, the date 
of the death in combat of Che, as part of the 
ongoing battle for truth, justice and the freedom of the Five.

During this time, the world will be reminded that 
on September 21, 1976, the former foreign 
minister of Chile, Orlando Letelier and his North 
American secretary Ronnie Moffitt, were 
assassinated in Washington DC. Also during this 
time, it will be remembered what happened on 
October 6, 34 years ago when a plane was blown up 
in mid-air over the coast of Barbados killing 73 
innocent people on board. Those who confessed to
this heinous crime, Orlando Bosch and Luis Posada 
Carriles, today enjoy privileges awarded by the 
US government and are free to walk the streets of 
Miami as honorable citizens instead of the 
international criminals that they are.

Today, September 4, on the thirteenth anniversary 
of the death of Fabio Di Celmo, a young Italian 
tourist who died from a bomb blast that was 
planted in a Cuban hotel by order of the same 
Luis Posada Carriles, we join with people from 
around the world in all their initiatives and 
activities from September 12 - October 8.

On behalf of the memory of Fabio, of the victims 
of Barbados, and of all of those who have 
suffered death and wounds by the actions of terrorist groups based in Miami.

And on behalf of all peoples right to live in 
peace, we raise our voices,  along with honest 
men and women from all over the world to renew 
our commitment, to multiply our efforts, day by 
day, step by step, so that together we can 
achieve the return of the Cuban Five to their families and their homeland.

We demand President Obama to put an end to this 
injustice and order the freedom of the Five Cuban Patriots Now!
