- El Paso Diary
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.

Five cuban heroes, prisoners in the United States of America, send messages of congratulation for the arrival of the new year and one more anniversary of the Cuban Revolution.
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.
Cuban anti-terrorist Rene Gonzalez, who is on probation in the United States, called to continue fighting for the release of his four fellow countrymen, who have been imprisoned in the United States since 1998. Rene Gonzalez, along with Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labanino, Antonio Guerrero and Gerardo Hernandez were severely condemned for reporting terrorist plans against Cuba, which were forged by terrorist groups based in the state of Florida.
Statement from the National Committee to Free the Cuban Five on the Release from Prison of René González
René González, one of the five men known as the Cuban Five, today will walk out of Federal Prison in Marianna, Florida. He will walk out with his head held high after more than 13 years in prison, having served his utterly unjust sentence with complete dignity. He has been a model prisoner, even while suffering the indignity of being inhumanely deprived visits from his wife for more than 11 years.
U.S. President Barack Obama has the opportunity to keep on doing the same as his predecessor George W. Bush did or show that he represents a change, Cuban Parliament President Ricardo Alarcon stated. It is supposed that Cuban antiterrorist Rene Gonzalez is released from prison on Oct. 7, and this fact will prove Obama’s real willingness, Alarcon told press.
We feel deeply the horrific execution of Troy Davis. It is another terrible injustice and stain on the history of this country. We join in the pain felt by his relatives, friends and brothers across the world. Now we have another cause, another flag, to pursue our struggle for a better world for all, free of the death penalty and barbarism.
Solidarity with the Cuban Five political prisoners was evident this year at the Left Forum held March 18 – 20 at Pace University in New York City. Under the auspices of the Louisville (KY) Committee for the Five, Cuban Five supporters from New York, Pennsylvania, Maine, and Kentucky were on hand at a table for the Five in the Forum’s busy exhibit space.
