Camagüey, September 29 – “Yellow Lights” photo exhibition collects some of the pictures taken by Camagüey residents in a bid to respond the appeal made by hero Rene Gonzalez when he urged all Cubans in early September to wear yellow ribbons during the current campaign in solidarity with the Cuban Five unjustly held in U.S. jails.
The exhibition, which is on display at the headquarters of the Cuban Association of Social Communicators (ACCS) in Camagüey province, is also dedicated to the 53rd anniversary of the Committees for the Defense of the Revolution (CDR) and will remain open until October 5th. On that date, an Internet forum will be available to demand the release from prison of Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, Gerardo Hernández and Antonio Guerrero.
During the opening ceremony, Camagüey-resident intellectual Jorge Santos Caballeros said that the exhibition is part of the immediate response that the people of Cuba gave to Rene Gonzalez in support of his brothers who are still behind bars. Following an American tradition, millions of Cubans tied yellow ribbons around trees, wore them around their wrists or hung them on their houses’ doors.
“Yellow Lights” photo exhibition is one of the many actions the ACCS has done to tell the world about the tremendous injustice the U.S. Government has and continues doing against the five Cuban anti-terrorist heroes. (Luis Varcasia Era/ Radio Cadena Agramante contributor).
