Havana, May 11. -US students, who were granted scholarships in Cuba, are joining on Tuesday the claim by students from other countries in Camaguey province to demand the freedom of five Cuban antiterrorists that are imprisoned in the United States.
Cassandra Cusack, Miami (Florida), Jessie Lucey, Los Angeles (California), and Nathaniel Kratz, Wyoming, declared their solidarity with the struggle to achieve the release from prison of Rene Gonzalez, Gerardo Hernandez, Antonio Guerrero, Ramon Labañino and Fernando Gonzalez.
The US students took part in a 13-kilometer (8 miles) walk that foreign students carry out annually in Camaguey up to Potrero de Jimaguayu, where Major General Ignacio Agramonte died on May 11, 1873.
Students from more than 70 countries signed a letter addressed to the US government to request a consistent attitude in favor of releasing The Five, as they are known worldwide. The Five have been imprisoned in the United States since 1998 for warning Cuba about the terrorist plans by the extreme-rightwing groups based in Miami.(Prensa Latina)
