Voices from around the World Demand Justice for The Five

Havana, Cuba, Sep 6.- As part of the international campaign “On the Fifth for The Five,” activated the fifth day of every month, voices from around the world demanded justice for the Cuban heroes condemned in the United States for fighting terrorism.

Guido Miguel Carlotto, secretary for Human rights of the Argentinean province of Buenos Aires, sent a letter to President Barack Obama, in which he underlines that The Five were the victims of a politically manipulated case.

The letters describes countless international demands for the return of Gerardo Hernandez, Rene Gonzalez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero and Fernando Gonzalez to their homeland, the Prensa Latina news agency reported.

In a similar gesture, the Malian Association of Friendship with the Peoples of Latin America and the Caribbean (AMAPALC) described as groundless the charges against The Five, who were struggling against terrorist actions brewed by the Florida-based Cuban-American mafia, the Web site reported.

In its message, the AMAPALC also demands the lifting of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by Washington on the island for over half a century now.

Also, on the occasion of the 14th anniversary of the arrest in Miami of The Five, to be marked on September 12, the Association of Cuban Residents in Costa Rica issued a statement, which denounces the double standard of the United States in this case. (Radio Cadena Agramonte).
