Haiti: Interactive Dialogue on Cuban Antiterrorists

Haiti: Interactive Dialogue on Cuban Antiterrorists Port-au-Prince, Mar 8. – Haiti's Kiskeya radio station aired an interactive dialogue to make public the reality in the case of the Cuban Five, unjustly held in the United States for over 13 years.

The program not only reached the Haitian audience but also people in Canada and the United States.

Jean Marvel, a journalist and co-director of Kiskeya radio station, Sociologist and Economist Camille Chalmers and the third Secretary of Cuba's Diplomatic Mission in Haiti, Carmen Maury, participated in the program.

The interactive dialogue denounced the media campaign financed by the government of the United States to influence the world's public opinion and particularly people living in Miami.

Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Gerardo Hernandez and Rene Gonzalez were arrested on September 12, 1998, in Miami. An irregular trial in 2001 resulted in long sentences ranging from double life to 15 years imprisonment.

During the program, it was learned how several prominent figures and international organizations have defended the Five, as they are known internationally, who were monitoring the actions by Florida-based extreme right violent groups to warn Cuba about terrorist actions they might carry out.(Prensa Latina)
