France: Free the Cuban 5

France: Free the Cuban 5Paris, May 31. -The traditional demonstration in Paris for the release of five Cuban antiterrorist fighters, a book of poems, and an event with European jurists are among the actions carried out by supporters of the Cuban Five in France.

As usual, solidarity groups and many non-governmental organizations assembled in the emblematic Bastille Square to demand the release of the Five.

They referred to the case of Antonio Guerrero, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Gerardo Hernandez and Fernando Gonzalez, unjustly imprisoned in the United States since 1998 for preventing terrorist actions against Cuba.

A book by Guerrero was just released: 18 poems to Free the Five, featuring poetry he wrote in the federal prison where he is being held in Florence, Colorado.

Translated into French by activist Annie Arroyo, printed and distributed by the France-Cuba Committee in Toulouse, the poetry is based on the 18 days Guerrero was in "the hole" in the Federal Transit Center in Oklahoma. The hole is a subhuman punishment cell, two meters long and one wide without any window.

An international colloquium, "The trial of the Five in the United States, terrorism and international law," featuring jurists from Europe and around the world, will be held Saturday. (Prensa Latina)
