As part of the World Campaign “Gimme 5 for The Cuban Five,” workers, students and other sectors demand on Monday in Havana the release of the Cuban antiterrorist fighters unjustly serving long sentences in the United States.
Musical meetings, exchanges with relatives of the Cuban Five, as they are universally known, and the launching of books are part of the activities.
On the occasion of Construction Workers´ Day, many workplaces, factories and workshops will receive examples of solidarity with the antiterrorists, the national trade union of that area stated.
On the fifth of each month, activists in several parts of the planet demand that the United States end what they describe as the injustice in the case of Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino and Fernando Gonzalez, sentenced after infiltrating violent groups operating with impunity against Cuba from Miami.
Recently, in the eastern city of Holguin, 750 kilometers (466 miles) from Havana, more than 300 delegates from 50 countries agreed in a colloquium to increase actions to reveal the situation of the Five and demand of Washington their release and return to the island.
Among measures used is a greater use of social networks, to break the barrier of silence imposed by larger media in the case of the antiterrorists detained in 1998.
