The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Anita Prestes, daughter of internationalist fighters Olga Benario and Luiz Carlos Prestes, sent this statement to Aldo Fidel, Cuba’s Commercial Consul in Sao Paulo, in which she calls for saving the lives of the Cuban Five who have been held in U.S. prisons.
René González, one of the five anti-terrorist Cuban fighters unfairly given harsh prison sentences in the United States, arrived to Cuba on Friday on a family, private visit in the wake of authorization by a US judge to visit his gravely ill brother.

Havana, Mar 20 (Prensa Latina) Judge Joan Lenard, of the South Florida Federal District Court, approved the motion to travel to Cuba presented by the attorney for Rene Gonzalez, one of the five Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly held in U.S. prisons. Lenard, who has been in charge of the trials of Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino and Rene Gonzalez, authorized the latter to pay a two-week visit to Cuba to see his brother Roberto, who is seriously ill.
I never thought I would have to write this letter. We share the same lack of enthusiasm for letter writing, a fact clearly demonstrated during our respective internationalist missions and – more conclusively – in the unique experience of the last 20 years. In other words, only conditions as extraordinary as the present ones induce me to write.
THE STORY of the Cuban Five is a complicated one, but that’s not stopping a troupe of child actors from tackling history. The Cuban children’s theater group La Colmenita (Little Beehive) will mix fantasy and reality to tell the tale of these Cuban national heroes tonight at Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture. The play, “Abracadabra,” speaks to a top concern among Cubans, said Carlos Alberto Cremata, who founded the group in 1990.
Today it was Ramón…We talked with another of the Cuban Five! Topping off five days of one surprise after another, today, after having rehearsed tomorrow’s performance at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts, located in the upscale neighborhood of Georgetown, where many luminaries from the arts world in the United States have studied, we received another huge surprise.
Today, October 16, was another beautiful day in this tour of the U.S. capital. We had the enormous pleasure of visiting the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum where we had many moving experiences, among them the unforgettable Planetarium, the Apollo 10, and the first flight of the Wright brothers.
On October 15, the first performance of Abracadabra by La Colmenita [The Little Beehive] was held at the Kay Chapel at American University in Washington DC. It was a gorgeous performance, where the public was entertained by its beauty, and moved to tears (just as we’ve experienced in Cuba).
La Colmenita’s first performance in Washington DC was extraordinary. The audience began arriving at the Kay Chapel at American University at 5:30 p.m. even though the performance was not to begin until 7. People of all ages arrived along with plenty of children. The chapel filled up. Two young parents with their small children came from New Jersey, driving four hours to attend the event because they’d been unable to see the troupe when it was in New York.
U.S. Congressional Representatives Barbara Lee and Laura Richardson, both Democrats from California, received members of the Cuban children’s theatre group La Colmenita at their offices next to the Capitol building on Friday morning, October 14.
